About yourself

I love travel! I have a real passion for exploring countries and experiencing new cultures. I love meeting locals and seeing how they live, work, play, eat and sleep. It is really heart warming when you get accepted into their family and house. I enjoy living out of a back pack, never knowing where you are going to end up next and how you are going to get there.

I have always wanted to work in travel and my dream has come true. I love working on new tours, I am lucky enough to help with the planning of trips to travelling on some as a tour leader.

This is a hard question, I have quite a few. One has to be walking the Great Wall of China
