Born and raised in Germany, I lived in Ireland for a several years before coming to the US and moved to the DC area from Los Angeles, CA a few years ago.
I have 20 years of extensive experience in the travel and tourism industry and my love of travel has taken me to fabulous places around the world including Spain, Italy, Northern & Central Europe, Switzerland, Greek Isles, Alaska, Hawaii, Australia, Indonesia, Bali and many many more.
A few years ago, I took a 3-month trip through South East Asia (Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Cambodia) and also learnt to scuba dive!
Really I lost my heart there and have been back quite a few times since. My most recent trip to Asia took me back to Singapore as well as Malaysian Borneo and it was just an incredible adventure!
I do have a young son and absolutely understand the certain (and very different) needs when traveling as a family.
All of my travels and trainings will give you recommendations based on a lot of first hand experiences from around the globe - this could be a sunset wine tasting on Santorini, a private tour guide at the Alhambra in Granada/Spain, seeing the feeding at the Orangutan Rehabilitation Center in Sepilok/Malaysian Borneo, taking the cog train up to Muerren in Switzerland, taking a helicopter over the Great Barrier Reef and the Heart Reef with a Champagne Landing on Whitehaven Beach in Australia, experiencing Sangkran (the waterfestival) in Thailand, hiking between the 5 towns of Cinque Terre, hearing glaciers crash into the water at Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska, getting spoilt at a luxury resort while being told "I am not here to spoil your lunch but to spoil you", being amazed by the colorful marine life on a dive in the Maldives or watching your little one laugh for joy in the splash pad onboard a Royal Caribbean Ship.
I could go on and on about how many memories I was able to make with my growing family and that I would love to share with you!
