Probably my enthusiasm for different cultures arose already as a small child, during regular family visits to Bangladesh. Various travels, my tourism studies and different jobs in the tourism industry showed me that travel could combine cultures, create income opportunities and even serve nature conservation. Hence, I was entirely under the spell of the sector. After a year in Asia, a job vacancy from Travel Nation led me to Brighton. I am now looking forward to helping other travellers have memorable experiences.
I’ve studied in the beautiful (and cold) Harz mountains in Germany, on the rugged coast of Denmark and did an internship in Australia to warm up again.
Because I’ve always loved travelling, the tourism industry attracted me quite early. Since my first school internship for a small tour operator, I have remained faithful to the industry in the last 15 years. I studied tourism and helped organise a conference on sustainable tourism in Asia/Pacific during an internship in Australia. Afterwards, I worked as a quality and product manager for a sustainable tour operator in Germany, where I’ve trained tour guides and staff, was involved in a campaign for human rights in tourism and organised tours mainly to Africa.
