George’s Travels

In spring 2015, Associate Director George Trudgill decided to leave the rest of us in the Harvey John office and set out to travel the world.

For an adventurous 5 months, George visited 11 countries in total: Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador (Galapagos Islands), the US, Canada, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and Laos.

She came back full of excitement and with many stories from all the cultures she has encountered. We asked George what her highlights were:

Top experience

My highlights would definitely be seeing the salt flats, geysers and flamingo lagoons in Bolivia all amazing experiences combined in one excursion.

Also, I have to mention the feeling of reaching the top of Dead Woman’s Pass during our Inca trail hike. This was after 5 hours of climbing steps and slopes, at up to 4,217m above sea level.

Favourite place

I would have to name Bolivia as my favourite country, but in terms of cities, I really loved Cusco in Peru and Vancouver in Canada.

The weirdest thing you ate

That would have to be either an alpaca steak or a fried tarantula leg!

Did you miss home at all?

That’s difficult, with all the fantastic places I went but I will say that I was very glad I had my DEET mosquito spray with me!

We are now happy to have George back in the office, it’s like she never left!
