South America and especially Peru always caught Johanna’s attention. First she went to Spain to study tourism, after which, in 2013, she decided to pursue her desire to travel to Peru, so she went for 6 months to Huaraz. At first she thought that she was only going to stay in Peru for a few months working at RESPONS, until she fell in love with Peru, its charming people and the delicious food. According to her, RESPONS is exactly what she was looking for. She is thrilled by the close contact with the local communities and loves the work that RESPONS realizes.
After 3 wonderful years in Huaraz where she learned a lot, she decided to live in Cusco for a change and to go for new challenges. Since then, Peru and RESPONS have not let her go and she has been living in Peru since.
She loves to work as a travel designer and likes to show travelers her favorite places in Peru and give them advice and recommendations that one only knows after having lived in Peru for a while. Best of all, according to Johanna, is to see that the travelers have enjoyed their trip and come back full of new energy and happiness.
