I live in a small town called La Mata, near Torrevieja, in the Alicante province of Spain, and I LOVE to travel! Below are just a few of the countries I've visited or worked in as a guide.
Let me share with you a bit about my background. By the way, there's no 'ideal' background for the Tour Guide profession, but experience in dealing with the public is definitely a plus! .
When I first heard about the tour guide job, it felt like it was made for me! I love languages, I like socializing and working with people, and I love showing off.
When I'm not working I like watching movies, listening to world music, reading, sea swimming …oh, and also, of course, travelling!
I'm divorced, and also have three gorgeous children. I can't stand tripe; and I'm allergic to skate (a flat fish), otherwise I can eat pretty much anything, which is definitely a great help when working in far-flung places.
Although I've travelled extensively - to over 75 countries - I haven't actually worked in most of them. I have led tours in the following places:
Europe: France, Spain, Italy, Germany
Asia: India, China, Vietnam
South America: Brazil
Central America: Mexico, Cuba
Pacific: Australia, New Zealand
