What defines travel? What does it even mean? After all, this is the fundamental reason why you came to Les Roches Marbella and sought a career in Hospitality…Because people love to travel! They love to discover new cultures, new food, seeing new places and meeting new people.
Experiencing life in a completely different manner is ranked as one of the highest sources of joy, and this is for me the ultimate reason for travelling! Happiness!
You are on the receiving end of the travel chain and are the ultimate and last responsible for the long lasting memories that create such happiness!
My job, as Travel Writer&Photographer, is merely to tell the story that will initiate and facilitate the journey of the traveller. I work on the dream and planning stages of travel, where the traveller is seeking (voluntarily or involuntarily) information, advice and most importantly, inspiration for their next voyage.
Now, my blog has reached the final round of voting for FITUR 2014 European TravelBlogger awards and it would mean the world to me if I was to become your favourite travel blogger and receive your vote!
