Life before Swoop
I graduated from university with a tourism degree and started working and travelling straight away. I later won a scholarship to complete a Master's degree in Tourism Administration from the University of Alicante in Spain, focussing my final work on Antarctica. I worked briefly at a UK-based travel agency, and after a couple of years returned to Argentina. I worked there for 17 years on tailor-made trips, helping people design their dream itinerary.
My Antarctic experience
My first visit to Antarctica was a revelation. I had spent so much time travelling in the stunning landscapes of my native Argentina, I wasn't expecting to be so blown away! Whereas usually I'm thrilled to explore one standalone glacier, in Antarctica they are everywhere you look. They pour over the mountains like icing on a cake and I loved seeing the different shapes the icebergs form as they erode.
Why I love polar travel
Travelling creates such a wonderful mix of emotions! I find peace and creativity in nature; Antarctica is the most serene and tranquil place when you are gliding amid the icebergs or ship cruising through the Lemaire Channel. I am also passionate about the enriching wisdom, can-do attitudes and warm hearts of the people that you encounter in Antarctica: both on the expedition team and fellow travellers.
Day to day at Swoop
I enjoy listening and sharing, connecting travellers with the best options for their time in Antarctica. I love to talk through when it most suits them to travel, which is the best expedition ship for them and which activities they might enjoy once down on the White Continent.
