"I'm a travel addicted. Working in the world of tourism was a fortuitous consequence, but it could not have been otherwise. I love sharing my experiences with clients, and I am sure that my advice never disappoints."

"China was probably one of the trips that challenged me the most. I traveled alone for four weeks. Moving around by train and bus as well. Language was definitely the biggest barrier. Few Chinese speak English, especially when moving from the big centers.
A unique and incredible experience. "
