I was bit by the travel bug when I was 15. I travelled with a camp as a teenager for three weeks in Spain through Castile and Andalusia. The following year, I went to Morocco. One of my favourite memories was sleeping on the roof of a kasbah under the stars. It was magical! Later, I travelled to Greece. I chose to study tourism and graduated in 1998. Since then, I have worked in the tourism industry. I have had the opportunity to discover new destinations in Europe such as Malta, Lisbon, Rome, Crete, and the Cyclades, and to return regularly to Spain, where I have a part of my roots and where I feel at home. I also made a few detours through the islands of the Indian Ocean, the Caribbean, South Africa, Venezuela, Mexico, the United States, and Hawaii. I'm very happy to be a part of the Goway team and I am sure that I will have the opportunity to create and organise many wonderful trips across Europe.
My favourite places
I have Spanish origins so Spain is like my second home. No matter what the destination: Catalonia, Andalusia, Castile, Balearic, or the Canary Islands, Spain guarantees a successful holiday. Sunshine, rich cultural heritage, beautiful landscapes, gentle living, very good food, and wine! What else do you need?
I love continental Greece for its ancient sites, its small fishing villages, and the variety of its landscapes; Crete for its mountains, with its gorges and rivers, which are suitable for beautiful walks, and its gastronomy; and the Cyclades for their white and blue villages and for their gentle lifestyle.
Central & South America
Mexico supplied many great memories. I loved the small fishing village of Celestun, the boat trip into Flamenco, Uxmal and the view of the forest from the top of its ruins, the mysterious site of Calakmul, Bacalar and its lagoon, and swimming with turtles in Akumal. You will love the rhythms of life in Mexico.
Volcanoes and lava flows, humid forests, remote valleys, cliffs, waterfalls, black, green, white or grey sandy beaches. What most impressed me was the warm welcome of the Hawaiians, their smiles, their simplicity, their desire to please, and their relaxed attitude. You can only come back Zen from a trip to Hawaii.
