Silvia Martin

I was born in Madrid, Spain, in a large family of hard workers and food lovers. My passion for traveling was started when I was 16 years old, when I made a friends trip to Rome, Italy. From that moment I knew that I had to dedicate my whole life in showing people how great is to travel and searching for new destinations to discover. I love food, cooking, and people. I am also a music lover and I play the Spanish guitar. Would you allow me to show you hidden corners of Spain, Portugal and Morocco?

How did you get involved in travel?

"I decided to study a Tourism Degree and once finished, I started working as a recepcionist in a 4 stars hotel in my city, Madrid. My first experiences with travellers were very satisfactory and from that very first moment I knew that my life should be dedicated to Tourism. I had the chance to work in hotels, airports, agencies, touroperators etc... and I was lucky to find good friends along my career, either colleagues and clients. I try to learn new things every day, and I am completely sure that travelling is the most valuable thing that life can give you."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Well...since I come from a large family, when I was a child, we neved had the chance to travel all together. I enjoy a lot when I receive requests from families which are planning their holidays with kids, sisters, grandmas etc... and it was always a dream to me to do the same thing with my people because I love to share experiences with them. Last year I had the chance to organize a super "Family trip" to Portugal, and we really enjoyed discovering new places and sharing time in a different Country. I really loved showing around the culture, food and amazing places to my brothers, sisters, mum... and see their lighting face when we ride a tram in Lisbon, when we crose the Douro River by boat or when we taste some local wines in a very exclusive cellar in Porto. An unforgettable trip for me."
