Sabine Blaske
I developed my love and passion for exploring the world and different cultures during a school exchange in Senegal. It taught me that we all have aspirations and can learn from one another, if we are open minded. Born in Germany, I travelled through various countries in Europe, but also travelled extensively in New Zealand, Australia, Russia, Dubai, Singapore and New Caledonia. After I graduated with a Bachelor in International Tourism, I lived and worked for the last 10 years in England, Germany, Australia and now Canada. I enjoy my travels most when I get close to locals to learn directly from them about their culture, nature and unique locals. My most memorable experiences are swimming with whale sharks, hot air ballooning in the Australian Outback and skydiving over the Southern Alps of New Zealand. My bucket list is long, but on top of the list is Bhutan, the only country in the world who measures the Gross National Happiness.
