A bit about me:
After completing my studies in International Airline and Travel Management, I have worked in different areas within the luxury travel industry since 2007. I have now joined the Escorted Tours team at The Ultimate Travel Company and fully intend to put my passion for travel into my current role. I enjoy planning exciting travel itineraries around the world, operating and executing them for our highly discerning clients.
My favourite place
I absolutely loved my stay which included an elephant safari and a tiger encounter at the Jim Corbett National Park in India. Covering an area of 521 square kilometres bordering the foothills of the Himalayas, the Jim Corbett National Park is a land that can offer numerous unique experiences.
My favourite hotel
Through my work, I have been extremely lucky to experience the hospitality of luxurious hotels. It is difficult to name one, so I have picked two:
1. Elounda Peninsula in Crete, Greece.
Elounda is famous for the island of Spinalonga. I stayed in the presidential suite which is situated on the water front with a heated sea water pool and is exceptionally special with the direct access to the jetty and the hotel’s private sandy beach where I spent hours snorkelling.
2. Tschuggen Grand Hotel in Arosa, Switzerland.
I enjoyed the breath-taking views of the mountains from the Tschuggen’s suite. I had an unforgettable Abhyanga massage in their 5000 m2 spa which has been beautifully designed by star architect Mario Botta. Every afternoon, I took the private railway, the phenomenal Tschuggen Express, to the mountains for sunny lunches with my husband.
My most memorable experience
I took the most magnificent railway journey which leads through the Eiger mountains to Jungfraujoch, the top of Europe, which is at 3454 metres above sea level. On my way back, I was extremely lucky to take a tour of Eigergletscher, a Jungfraujoch confectionary which is Europe’s highest in altitude, for a private chocolate making session with this famous chocolatier.
My top tips
• Learn common phrases of local languages. A simple ‘’please’’, ‘’thank you’’ and ‘’I’m sorry’’ can take you a long way.
• Visit the alps in summer, it’s not just a ski destination.
• Packing list must include a camera & a camcorder, binoculars, flashlight, electrical converter & plug adaptor, suntan lotion, spare glasses, hat, fleece, waterproof jacket, a good book, wet wipes and spare plastic zip lock bags.
