I have been a local guide in York, England; Innsbruck,Austria; the California Gold Country and Seattle, USA. I am also a tour manager for groups travelling all over the US, Canada, Mexico, Central America, Europe and China. In North America and Europe. I work mostly with German speaking groups.
I have been guiding for over 40 years, and would like to build up a business consulting on trip planning. There is so much knowledge accumulated over the years in my head, it seems a shame not to be able to make it available to others who have not had the good fortune to travel as much as have.
Travel is my passion as well as my profession, and I have visited 90+ countries - so far.
My expertise is travelling on $50 a day, this in a single room with en-suite bath. No dorms or bathroom down the hall for me - I am too old for that now. Also I have a mobility handicap, and have to deal with medical issues caused by cancer treatment.
