Since Oct 2008

50-64 year old female


I worked in the travel industry for 11 years and loved every minute of it. I was initially employed by Thomson who trained me to the highest standard. I was aged 50, when I began in the tourist industry but had worked in customer services for over 30 years which helped me a great deal.After working for the major tour operators I went to work for two independent travel agents in Corfu. I made it my business to travel all over Corfu in the winter months in order to improve my knowledge of the island for the benefit of the tourist who came to my office year on year. My passion was Turkey where I lived for 2 years up until 2012 when I retired. I miss working in tourism but am always happy to share my experiences with others, and although on a limited budget, I hope to travel more and explore pastures new.
