Driven by an insatiable wanderlust, I have left my native Hesdin in the north of France in a bid to uncover the tales of the soaring peaks of Patagonia and the immensity of the Chilean desert have to tell. I am currently exploring the magic of Torres del Paine National Park, while reaffirming my ideal of a more sustainable world and my passion for nature as Guest Engagement Manager of Ecocamp Patagonia.
