My name is Patrick Walker, and I’m 19. I’m on a gap year before I go to York to study Politics and International Relations. I’m trying to use this time to travel to places and do things that I’d never get to do in later life: an opportunity to try some really new experiences.
Peru’s perfect for this. A country that has faced some harsh natural disasters and government mismanagement and corruption is a far cry from my rather privileged life in the UK. I’m very much looking forward to meeting the people that live there and understanding a part of the world that receives little media attention, as well as exploring the stunning scenery and rich history the country has to offer.
