Fernando Paredes

Co-founder & CEO


He was born in Barcelona but his mother is from Jerez, so it’s not surprising that Fernando has spent his life moving between Northern and Southern Spain. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Economics at Barcelona University and then started his career in pharmaceutical consulting. Eight years later, having traveled half the world, he decided to change his career and follow his real vocation: travel.

Fernando entered the tourism industry in 2005 as general manager of a bespoke outbound travel group with several offices in Spain. Every time he embarks on a new journey it’s as if it was the first time. He has visited India, Thailand, Nepal, Vietnam, Myanmar, Indonesia, Singapore, Costa Rica, Turkey, Yemen, Morocco, South Africa, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia, Canada, USA and most of the Western European countries. Australia and South America are next on his list. He is the personification of wanderlust.

Mediterranean and Asian cuisines are Fernando’s favorites, but he appreciates any meal cooked with great affection. His preferred wine? Impossible to choose – he simply loves wine. He holds a Masters in Social Media Strategy from La Salle University in Barcelona and a postgraduate in Food Event Design from the European Design Institute.
