How did you get involved in travel?

"During the last 5 years I am was supporting my friends in preparing their trip to Greece.
In 2017, I realized, that helping others to experience the real Greece is what I really want to do and decided to drop my corporate career and co-founded travel12! "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"In 2012 I had the opportunity to pull a road trip from Pittsburgh to Key west! On the way back, we decided to visit the great smokey mountain national park!

After 12 hours of driving, we got lost in the mist discovering the real natural beauty of the park, a bit scary, but a truly unforgettable experience! "
