"I have had a very interesting career that has given me the opportunity to visit 32 countries worldwide. It is an experience that I will never forget, and one which introduced me to so many different people and cultures. After four years of travelling the high seas and the world, I felt the need to return to Europe, and I found my tailor-made role with Cosmos! I have escorted numerous different tours, mostly in France and Italy, two beautiful countries and have met many happy and satisfied guests. I love the camaraderie and friendship that can be felt by everybody during a tour."
