I introduced the Steppes Latin America programme with great enthusiasm in 2000 following a combined period of over 3 years exploring this incredible continent. My travels have taken me down the Amazon River by dug-out canoe, to the summit of many Andean peaks, and working on a number of cattle ranches throughout Argentina and Chile. Before joining Steppes Travel I worked and travelled extensively throughout Turkey.
