Thank you for your interest in working with me. As a blogger I work independently, transparently, professionally and have subscribed my work to the Blogger Codex. Through my work experience gained within the tourism industry and being an independent travel blogger, I have built up a huge network and know the needs of the travel industry as well as those of the bloggers.
My professional background
I worked in a travel agency in Germany before I moved to Leeuwarden and Breda in the Netherlands to do my Bachelor and Master’s degrees in International Tourism Destination Management. I have been working in the travel and tourism sector for more than ten years now and have worked in the online marketing departments of small and medium sized international tour operators both domestically and abroad. Alongside visiting over 500 places in 33 countries, I have lived and worked in six countries where I improved my English language skills and created my own multilingual travel blog by the end of 2014 in which I write about my favourite topics.
- Travel and Tourism in general
- Sustainable tourism, active tourism, adventure tourism and ecotourism
- Slow & responsible travel
- Events & film festivals and screenings of travel, outdoor and nature films
