Victoria (Vicky) was born (1982) in Germany and raised in Belgium’s German-speaking part. After working for five years as an attorney in Luxembourg-City, she quit her job to travel through South America, starting in Cusco.
Although traveling for 6 months through Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Bolivia, she kept coming back to Peru. She lived for 7 months in Puerto Maldonado (lower Amazon Rainforest), translating for groups on tours in the Rainforest (Tambopata Natural Reserve), where she could share her enthusiasm for the country and the Rainforest with other people – and where she also met Yohn. Together they went on a road trip for several weeks through whole Peru, an experience which would later give birth to Crossing Andes.
Vicky lives in Cusco and is licensed official tourism guide (Guía oficial de Turismo). She speaks German, French, English, Spanish and Luxemburgish.
