About the Author

Ben Westwood started dreaming of being a writer and musician at an early age. Growing up in England, he pursued both of his passions by studying music at Westminster University and working as a journalist at national newspaper The Independent.

After graduating, Ben decided to follow his passion for travel. With an English-language teaching qualification under his belt, he set off for South America in 1998, traveling through Ecuador, Colombia, and Peru. In Peru, he hiked the Inca Trail and fell in love with Machu Picchu; he still considers it one of the most awe-inspiring places he has ever visited. After returning to the UK to study at the countrys top journalism school, City University, Ben worked for five years at The Daily Telegraph as a travel journalist and online travel editor. He wrote articles on everything from encounters with Maoist guerrillas in Nepal to encounters with drunken Brits in Greece.

After a brief stint working in adventure tourism, Ben moved to South America with his wife and children in 2007 to write guidebooks and teach at UEES, one of Ecuadors best universities. Since then, he has authored Moon Ecuador and the Galápagos Islands and Moon Galápagos Islands, and has contributed to The Rough Guide to South America on a Budget. He also freelances for British newspapers, including The Guardian, The Independent, and The Daily Telegraph.

Ben now divides his time between Britain and South America. When hes not writing or teaching, hes usually playing music and has released one self-funded album, Keep Dreaming.
