Describe tourism management for those who dont know?
For me tourism management is giving your guests an unforgettable experience so though you met as strangers you part as friends.
I love slow travel where its the true experience of culture, history and adventure. Being able to share these experiences with guests is one of the best things to do in the world.
What courses did you do in tourism?
Im a conservationist by qualification - but have been in operation management of luxury game lodges all my career. we embarked on a family adventure to France 7 years ago and have built up our small farm and renovated the barn ourselves. Everything from building, plumbing, decorating and now cooking and planning the routes.
