About Gilda Fuentes
From Argentina, Gilda has always wanted to travel the world. And here she is, in the antipodes of the world, spreading the word that traveling makes you a better person. Her first job in a youth hostel 20 years ago was the kick-start of an enriching professional life that has had her assisting people while working in different capacities in many cool places.
Gilda has worked as a tour leader in South America, a hotel receptionist, a guest services manager, a waitress, a tour manager with a wine tour company, an operations manager of boutique hotels, a hotel manager on a ship, and a teacher. Above all, she has been blessed by those she has met and by all that she has learned throughout her life’s journey.
With a master’s degree in tourism and hotel management completed in Barcelona, Gilda continues to discover the world and to share it to others. She started her sailing life 6 years ago in Antarctica and now spends half the year working aboard ships and the other half at home in Mendoza with her 2 dogs.
