TTB 203: Guatemala, the Land of Eternal Spring

Valerie Russel is the CEO of Due South Travels, which offers custom guided tours throughout Guatemala, at a price point that makes travel accessible to people who never imagined it was possible. A native of Nyack, New York, Val was educated in Washington, DC, and Bournemouth, England and settled down in the New York metro area, prepared for a career in law enforcement.  After a decade of working to travel, Val decided to finally live the life she had been dreaming about and quit her job as a Narcotic Investigator to start Due South Travels.  She arrived in Guatemala in July 2017 and now lives in Antigua with her two expat felines.

The Travelers Blueprint is an indie travel podcast where each week we like to bring you insight from travel authors, adventurers, conservationists, digital nomads, tour guides, and through our own personal experiences.
