When Do You Want To Go?
Samir studied physics at the University of Manchester, graduating in 2010, he went on to complete his master’s in Photon Science the following year. Entering the workforce in the midst of an economic slowdown, he went to work in the IT and BioMedical recruitment field.
After a few years, he decided it was time for a change of scene and spent the summer working at events and festivals. As the winter set in, Samir booked flights to Latin America and spent 7 months exploring the region.
During his travels, he made it to Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, Argentina, Panama and Cuba.
The highlights of his travels were Machu Picchu, the Colca Canyon and Panama’s San Blas Islands.
In Colombia, he did the trek to the lost city and went hiking in the coffee region, both of which he thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend. Since starting at Latin Routes, he has been back to Brazil and Argentina, taking in the mighty Iguazu falls, both standing at the top of ‘The Devil’s Throat’ and taking the boat ride to the bottom. He then went on to hand glide over Rio de Janeiro.
His travels have also taken him across Europe, India, Canada, the United States, Lebanon and Algeria.
Samir has two favourite places the San Blas Islands off the coast of Panama and Ilha Grande in Brazil. Both are remote island paradises home to stunning turquoise waters and pristine white sandy beaches.
"There is nothing quite like the experience of soaring over Rio de Janeiro in a hang glider, the roaring wind and the spectacular views make it a once in a lifetime experience."
