Gary James

Born in the United Kingdom, Gary James has lived in Chile since 1996. He is passionate about South America, and has travelled extensively throughout the continent, citing Argentina, Peru, and Brazil as his favourite countries outside of Chile. He loves the urban adventures of Santiago, Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires. Food and drink experiences rank highly too, particularly wine tasting in Argentina’s Mendoza region and the dazzling cuisine of Lima. In terms of combinations, it has to be Chile and Argentina, so similar geographically, but worlds apart in terms of the character of their people and their cuisine, which makes for a fascinating experience. When Gary is not leading intrepid expeditions across the South American continent, he is out exploring new areas in and around Santiago or in a heated room practicing Bikram yoga.
