My name is Tamara, 22 years old and currently working as a traveling consultant at a travel agency in the Netherlands.
In August 2016, I graduated from the bachelor degrees study ‘Tourism Management’. I always had a thing for travelling, writing, photographing and exploring new cultures and languages. That’s also the reason why I decided to start a study in the Tourism industry and finally decided to work in the Tourism industry as well. In the last few years, I have had several internships. For one internship, I lived in France for half a year and worked at Center Parcs. Furthermore, I had an internship at TravelPro, a Dutch travel trade magazine. Two very different kind of working places, but both learnful and interesting. Besides France, I already have been in several countries in- and outside Europe (for instance United Kingdom, Portugal, Suriname and Japan). Each time when I come back from a trip, I immediately want to go for another trip! Isn’t that what they call ‘Travel addicted’? Oh well…
In my opinion, you always learn from travelling and you always get richer. Not in money, but in experiences. And that’s the most beautiful thing about the whole travel part. You’re not only learning about yourself, but also about the world, the people and much more.
And then I want to share one of my favourite travel quotes with you: “Of all the books in the world, the best stories are found between the pages of a passport.”
