About Vanessa Barausse
Originally from Italy, after completing my degree in Foreign languages, I decided to exit my comfort zone. Being a creative and self-motivated individual, aiming to constantly learn more about new cultures and new roads to discover, led me to travel and live across three different continents. Among all my travel memories, the two most memorable experiences have been volunteering for an NGO in Brazil and spending a year working and travelling across Australia. I had the pleasure to join Quark Expeditions at the beginning of 2021 and I am looking forward to experience with my eyes the view of iconic polar wildlife as well as sailing in the icy and remote wilderness. I have learned first-hand that life begins at the end of your comfort zone, and my purpose is to inspire and guide travellers achieving their polar dreams.
