Timothy is warmly welcomed to the Cascada team as our new EcoCamp Patagonia Community Manager. Driven by an insatiable wanderlust, he has left his native Hesdin in the north of France in a bid to uncover the tales the soaring peaks of the Andes and the immensity of the Chilean desert have to tell. He has brought his great expertise to Cascada as a result of his desire to immerse
himself in the inimitable Chilean culture which he has come to love, whilst also protecting and caring for its precious natural spaces, meaning that future generations will have the same wonderful opportunity for years to come. When he takes a well-deserved rest, creative Timothy loves to wander the countryside in search of that perfect, inspiring spot to take a moment to marvel at the way our planet never stops surprising us, plucking the strings of his guitar with a glass of good wine on one side, and his trusty camera on the other. Timothy knows that just one day in buzzing Santiago
will never be enough, but he recommends a whirlwind tour around the Mercado Central, relishing the fresh food and flavours, before taking a stroll up the Cerro Santa Lucía to soak up the vastness of the city and its mountainous backdrop. He hopes that when you bid farewell to Chile, not only will you have satisfied your thirst for adventure (for now, anyway!), but that you will also leave inspired by the Cascada team’s infectious passion for sustainable, responsible tourism.
Helen is a travel writer, blogger and anthropology graduate who settled in Chile in 2012. She was drawn to the sustainable message behind EcoCamp as well as their work to promote inclusive travel.
