I am new to the travel industry in 2022 (though I have studied it) but not new to tourism. I have worked in the tourism sector for 5 years previously for the National Trust.
My favourite thing about my job is providing people with the memories that will last them a lifetime.
I would like next to visit the beautiful country that is Iceland. I would spend it relaxing in the thermal springs, exploring the local towns, taking a husky sled ride and maybe if I'm lucky seeing the Aurora Borealis.
I would love to visit Banff National park in Canada. The views alone are phenomenal. The time would consist of hiking up mountains, boating across the lakes, camping, sitting down with a good book with a fire on the go and just being away from the world in a potential freezing cold paradise.
I liked to visit Scotland when I was younger to see family. We would go out and explore both local and further places. Based between Edinburgh and Glasgow and the rest of Scotland a few hours drive north the options were limitless.
Camera, passport and Tremor my traveling dinosaur.
1) Learn some basics of the local language. Not only is it polite, its extremely helpful for yourself.
2) Make sure that you have a couple of days to relax. It is a holiday after all.
3) Make a folder with backups of documents, packing lists and emails to make yourself more organised in case anything goes wrong.
