My name is Aaron West and I am a certified tour guide. I have loved travelling ever since I can remember, and have spent more of my life with a backpack on my back than I have sitting at a desk. I have been to every continent in the world and visited more than 50 countries, including Senegal, Indonesia, Qatar, Bahrain and Greenland.
I am fluent in English, French and Italian and have very passable Spanish (if I do say so myself). I hold a BA in History from New York State University and spent 3 years living in Italy, where I wandered the countryside, working at odd jobs, and meeting wonderful people. I gained some excellent culinary skills during my travels, and am known for preparing some of the finest campfire meals in the region. I am a certified lifeguard and former competitive rower.
