Amazon Rainforest and Andes Mountains! | Nick Weller’s Travel Diary

Associate Partner at Simmons Gainsford, Nick Weller, is currently on a 3-month sabbatical, travelling and volunteering across Latin America and Africa. Here’s what he’s been up to…

Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest

Unfortunately we couldn’t much in the way of volunteering in the rainforest, but we did go on a long hike through the jungle.

We also took a canoe down the river, where we bumped into this guy!

We had quite a bit of free time so we went white water rafting and ziplining which really got the adrenaline pumping!

Andes Mountains

Some stunning shots of the Andes Mountains in Peru!

We also visited some ancient Incan ruins and the nearby communities to learn all about local life.

Where to next?

Stay tuned for the next entry as Nick travels to the Atacama Desert in Chile!
