I have always loved to travel and been fascinated by nature. After some years working as a photographer I returned to university to study for a degree in Earth Sciences, and an MSc. in Biodiversity and Conservation. Living in Yorkshire gives me easy access to the Lake District, Scotland and North Wales, each with their own charms and hidden depths. My travels in the Spanish-speaking world began in 1992 when I first visited the Canary Islands, thus began an obsession with the archipelago, and the lands of the Americas beyond.
