Travel Tales: Terry Gillespie

Name: Terry Gillespie

Age: 31

Occupation: Artworker

Favourite Travel Destination? Why?: Buenos Aires… the Barrio of San Telmo, impromptu tango parties, Buenos Aires Botanical Garden, the architecture of Europe, designers of Palermo…. How much time do you have?

Worst travel experience? What happened?: Fruit picking in Far North Queensland.  Working on a chilli farm is not a good idea in 35 degree heat whilst hungover.

Best meal you’ve ever had while travelling?: Ceviche whilst staying with mi familia in Lima, Peru. You just cant beat a slow home cooked meal.

Best/scariest/funniest drive?: Island driving in Hawaii – the unmatched beauty of volcanic mountains  rising straight out of the ocean is something I won’t forget.

What has been the big WOW moment of your travelling life?: Standing atop the Säntis in Switzerland as a youngster. I hadn’t seen snow before.
