My passion are the local people of Jordan and I love to share this with you. The Jordanian culture is a very welcoming and peaceful, which makes that I love to live in this beautiful country. Together with you I'll create a wonderful holiday that fits all of your needs and those of your family or friends. I'm originally from Holland but I've been living in the Middle East and mainly Jordan for 6 years.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I regularly visit different places in Jordan to keep up to date. This means that you can ask my anything about the country or special activities. And if I don't know about it, I have a team of wonderful travel specialists who do. My specialties are diving holidays (Me and my husband also run a dive center in Aqaba), responsible tourism, yoga holidays and hiking holidays. But mostly I create customized itineraries based on your wishes. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"I studied cross cultural management and sustainable entrepreneurship, not knowing that I would end up in tourism in Jordan. After my studies I left for a month long trip to and through the Middle East. That's when I fell in love with Jordan. From day one I've been involved in the travel industry in Jordan. This has resulted in having my own tour company in this surprising country. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I've been brought up traveling around the world. I'll never forget the day I went into the rural areas of Gambia but I'll also never forget that one holiday on where I met my husband! "
