I love to meet different people and show them around. In the past I travelled a lot and eventually became a travelguide on trips through Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and South Africa. After that period I needed to settle down a bit and became a freelancer (nurse) and started my own working agency with a friend which still gave me a lot of freedom. The last 10 years I opened up my house for tourists and enjoy their stories and it’s a pleasure informing them and helping them around. To organise trips for tourist in my own area is a new challenge and will be a joy!!
