This week is perfect for anyone interested in South America, especially Ecuador, Peru and the Galapagos Islands as Mike speaks with Marcel Perkins, an entrepreneur, the founder of Latin Trails and a man truly passionate about some of the things South America has to offer to people from all walks of life!
In their chat, Mike & Marcel start off by discussing what Marcel’s company Latin Trails has to offer anyone wanting an immersive experience in South America, before discussing some of Marcel’s passions, including nature & historical travel, along with some of the animals one could encounter while in the Galapagos Islands (including penguins, water lizards, tortoises and more), followed by discussing the current & previous cultures found in South America including the Incas & Machu Picchu. After this they talk about some of the delicacies found in South America including a meal consisting of tree worms and the speciality of Ecuadorian chocolate, followed by some of the more indigenous people’s traditions, such as drinking ayahuasca as well as talking about activities Latin Trails offer like biking down a volcano, horse-riding and more! Before the conversation ends, Marcel explains about how they built the two yachts they use for travelling between islands, how Latin Trails is environmentally conscious, especially taking into account how much travel affects the environment, Marcel’s personal views on zoos and the architecture of Quito in Ecuador.
