When I was about 12 years old….

When I was about 12 years old, I told my parents that I wanted to become a dolphin trainer and move to Spain when I grew up. Combining the two things I loved, travels and animals. Only a few months later it was time to choose a third language to study in school. No surprise there, I chose Spanish.

To fall in love with traveling

At a very young age, I knew that I had fallen in love with traveling and I already then had a feeling that travels would play a great role in my life. Only a few amounts of people I know do not enjoy traveling at all or prefer to just stay home, within their comfort zone. While most of the others love to travel as well, like me.
