Hasta Pronto, Piwi! Farewell to our lovely travel consultant, Paulina.

March 26, 2014 - 12:41

This week we say goodbye to one our beloved Travel Consultants, Paulina Lehuede. Paulina, or better known around the office as Piwi, has been with us since 2011 as our Trekking and Adventure Specialist. While she will be dearly missed here in Santiago, we are excited for her to start a new adventure in the Chilean Lakes District in the city of Temuco! We wanted to get a bit of better idea on where Piwi was headed, so we asked her a few questions about her and how she feels on this big life change!
