Get to know the person behind the tour

Laura B.

Paso Carrasco, Canelones, Uruguay

If you are coming to Montevideo join me and discover the charms of the city.

I would love to be the local friend you need to make the best out of your trip!

I like to describe myself as a traveler, it is one of my biggest passions. The last journey around Latin America I made lasted more than two years and it was amazing. I love getting to know people from all around the world and exchanging knowledge about the places we are from, but what I love the most is when I have the fortune of getting to know a place by the hand of a local friend. It means so much to me when I can be that person for those who come to my home town.

During my trips I discovered that I love postcards and started collecting them, but over my last journey I decided to make my owns. I connected then my lifelong interest in photography with my love for postcards. It became a way of capturing and sharing my experiences. There are postcards made by me all around the globe. They communicate anecdotes, longings, love and so much more. Now it is the time to find a new way of sharing my view of the world I know and guiding tours fits perfectly!

In terms of education I am an advanced student of Psychology, fascinated with how people and societies work. I've studied English for 20 years and English teaching for 2 years. During that time I also taught EFL (English as a Foreign Language) in a private middle school. Learning and teaching languages is another great way of knowing and sharing cultures. I'd like to learn more languages in the future.

Uruguay is where I was born and raised, a place to which I'm bonded. Being away for a while helped me realize how Uruguayan I was. All the things I missed, the uniqueness of this place, the characters that define us. And coming back after such a journey gave me the opportunity to rediscover this place and appreciate what I took for granted. I am even more Uruguayan now than I ever was!

I invite you to come and enjoy this beautiful city with me. I would feel truly honoured by showing you this precious corner of the world.
