How did you get involved in travel?

"After studying in the tourism sector and other work experiences I started organizing trips for friends and acquaintances as a hobby and for passion. After that I realized I could make this passion into my life's work."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"A travel experience I will never forget was a 1-month holiday in Venezuela, entirely organized by myself, with stays in the Amazon forest in contact with the local population, stays on the islands of Los Roques ... and lots of adventure."
