How did you get involved in travel?

"Exploring new places has always been fascinating to me, so one day I decided to turn my hobby into my work. In 2007 I started working in the tourism industry and have not stopped since. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Traveling by boat in Milford Sound NZ is one of them! I lived in New Zealand for about a year and a half after deciding to move to the amazing country back in 2014 and was mainly based in Wellington, the lovely little capital city. I had the opportunity to travel through New Zealand and can name many special places there, Milford Sound is one of them. Being able to travel to the open sea, surrounded by incredible scenery and wildlife, like waterfalls, dolphins, seals, penguins, and whales if you are lucky enough.
To see the mountains so close and all the landscapes in the surrounding areas is magnificent. "
