Our Project Manager and team member, Rhonna Gurevich, having travelled through South America recently, has kindly allowed us to share some of her memories and pictures in our blog.

Rhonna has been with the company nearly three years, specialising in working with our German-based clients and particularly the area of medical translations. She is from the United States and moved to New Zealand five years ago. Rhonna has a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a Master of Fine Arts in Medical Illustration. She especially enjoys dog training in her spare time.

Q. Tell us about your recent trip. What were the reasons you chose South America as your holiday destination? Had you been there before?

A. I had never been to South America before but have always wanted to go. My husband was there on a photographic expedition and I have been fortunate that I can follow him almost everywhere he goes.

Q. What countries did you visit and for how long?

A. I was in Buenos Aires, Argentina for four days and Montevideo, Uruguay for six days. I stayed in the cities and did not venture out into the countryside.

Q. Did you learn some Spanish in your trip?

A. I learned some Spanish in preparation for this trip. Of course, what you learn in a class is very different from how the language is actually used in day-to-day life. I also learned that Google translate cannot be relied upon going from English into Spanish.

Q. What were your favourite places and why?

A. I really liked Buenos Aires. I lived in Italy when I was a young child and it reminded me very much of the feeling of being in Italy.

Q. Would you recommend this part of the world to your friends?

A. Absolutely. Both cities were lovely and great to visit. Both did feel a lot like European cities with decided Italian influences. I loved the architecture and would like to go back and see more of the countries. The food was great too.

Q. What other countries would you like to visit in the near future?
A. All of them. Particularly many of the Pacific Island nations that are so near to New Zealand, like Tonga, Samoa, Niue, Fiji, New Caledonia, etc.
