London, UK Travel Agent
LEISURE & BUSINESS TRAVEL AGENT
As long as I can remember growing up in Brazil, I was fascinated by travel and wanted to experience of much as the world as possible. Therefore, there was only one degree course I was ever going to take at College and that was my BA in Tourism & Hospitality Management. Having successfully passed, I then started my career in travel working for a Brazilian travel agency, where I was responsible for organising holidays and Cruises all over South and Central America, USA and Europe.
This was a great way to start in the travel industry and gave me the opportunity to travel extensively throughout South and Central America, really getting to know this beautiful and fascinating part of the world. It also ignited my passion for wanting to see more of the planet, so three years later, I took the plunge and moved to the UK, where I fell equally in love with Europe, Africa and Asia. I started working with Crystal Travel as South American Specialist Travel Consultant, before working with other travel companies to gain a good knowledge of Business Travel and the Events industry.
I now live permanently in London with my husband and two children, so I can certainly add organising family holidays to my area of speciality. I’m hugely proud to own company Marina Travel and to be partnering with Colletts. I love helping my many long-standing clients, but also working with new clients.
