For Juan, travelling has always been a passion. He spent three years in Latin America, two years in Oceania and Southeast Asia and shorter terms of up to 9 months in various European and North African countries. He worked as teacher in adult education centres and as the head of a competence centre for migrant matters before he moved to South Africa in 2011 to be trained as a nature guide. Since then he has mainly been working as a tour guide in Southern Africa, though he also gathered experience as a travel consultant. He is a member of the Field Guides Association of Southern Africa. Juan finds all animals interesting, even ant lions and termites.
Juan speaks German, English and Spanish.
