I was born and raised in Belgium but in my mid 20’s I decided to move to Istanbul since it was love at first sight. It was inevitable to not fall in love with this magnificent city. You are constantly surrounded by authentic streets, amazing architecture and famous landmarks. Personally, travel is my number one priority and I take trips as often as I can. Having worked at an airline company, travel was a part of my daily activities. Years later, I’ve visited a lot of different places and countries. In times of mass tourism, it is easy to think that our world has no unique experiences or hidden places left. I make it my mission to always find the most unique hideaways and authentic travel excursions to create the most memorable trips.

How did you get involved in travel?
"In 2011, I began to work in the travel industry. I started extracting and analyzing travel data and later on I was in charge of travel campaigns all around the world. This helped me gain a lot of experience in different kind of travel areas. For example, I experienced that preparation is key. Organizing a trip is not easy. Before every travel I always set up an itinerary. Each trip has different requirements, conditions and interpretation. A customized trip requires a professional approach. As an European living in Turkey, I’ve discovered a lot of gems in Turkey and I would like to share those experiences with you. Whether it is drinking tea with a wonderful view of the Bosphorus or experiencing a hot air balloon ride in Cappadocia. Together we can make it happen."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"I’m lucky that I’ve got to experience a lot of travels. I’ve been to the Game of Thrones site in Split, Croatia. I went swimming in the bay in Kotor, Montenegro. But Thailand will always have my heart. My memories of feeding monkeys and snorkeling in the marine life of Koh Tal will be treasured forever."
