I developed my 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 extensively through Europe, New Zealand, Australia, Russia, Dubai, Singapore and New Caledonia. After I graduated with a bachelor’s in International Tourism, I lived and worked in England, Germany, Australia, and now Canada. I enjoy my travels most when I get close to locals and learn directly from them about their culture. My most memorable experiences are swimming with whale sharks, hot air ballooning in the Australian Outback and skydiving in New Zealand. My bucket list is long, but at the top of the list is Bhutan – the only country in the world who measures the Gross National Happiness!

I started travelling when I was young, and quickly developed a love for exploring, often daydreaming about adventure and travel. Experiencing so many different cultures made me want to know more about the world and its people, places, traditions and cultures. I began my career in the travel industry when I joined a luxury cruise line, eventually exploring six continents, 63 countries, and over 150 cities, always loving waking up in a different place each morning. My favourite part of my job is learning about our guests’ stories, their culture and their experiences. I've met amazing and inspiring people, everyone with a different, unique story. These people are the reason behind my love for travel. Travel unites us. It is the shared passion to see and explore the world.

My love of travel and discovering new places began when I was very young, with my parents regularly taking me abroad on family vacations. Later, as a teenager, if not off having adventures in foreign lands, I could be found reminiscing and daydreaming about travel and sharing my passion with others. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have set foot on all seven continents, to have visited over 75 countries worldwide and to have lived for extended periods in five remarkable destinations: Wales, France, Germany, Australia and Bali, Indonesia.

More than 20 years in the travel industry, my passion is still there and having taken my own children out to discover the world - from snorkelling with sharks in Belize, fishing for piranha in the Amazon basin of Peru to watching orangutans in the wild in Borneo and climbing the temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia: I hope that I have instilled a love of travel in them.

Helping people discover the pleasure of travel and watching them get bitten by the travel bug is what I enjoy most.

I began my career in Cultural Tourism as a lecturer for European educational groups in the Middle East. I studied architecture and graphic design but found in tourism the ideal field to fulfill my love of history, art and people. I have lived on 3 different continents and traveled extensively in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Africa and the Americas! I can speak English, French and Farsi fluently and can get by in German, Spanish and Arabic.
I am very passionate about the cultural diversities one finds while traveling and my greatest ambition is to keep on traveling. I want to see the great architecture, the flora and fauna, taste the good food, drink the exotic wines, dance to different beats and enjoy the exciting nightlife that our world has to offer. That’s why my favorite destination is South America, it encompasses all of that and more!

Travelling is an adventure and it’s also a healer. Meeting new people in new places fills me with curiosity about the world around me, so travel feeds my desire to learn about new cultures and increases my respect for different places. Over the years I have explored everything from idyllic countryside landscapes to dynamic cities, wild mountains, peaceful beaches and fascinating deserts. I have travelled solo, as well as with groups of some of the most amazing and passionate travellers you could hope to meet. My visit to the UAE had a major impact on me. It was a turning point in my travelling adventure and unlike anything else I’ve experienced, because it’s a somewhat artificial setting, but it’s also fascinating and full of life at the same time.

15 years ago I completed a tourism degree with a goal that I would show my mother the world as I had already been bitten by the travel bug. I learned that it is a priceless gift to create memories in different destinations. Some of my most memorable experiences are learning not to fall while surfing in Costa Rica, swimming with the sharks in Belize, walking on a pure white sand beach in the Philippines, swimming with dolphins in Jamaica, feeding kangaroos in Australia, visiting the Big Buddha in Hong Kong, enjoying the magical sites of Machu Picchu, and paragliding in Lima. The biggest bonuses in travel are recharging your batteries, leaving your worries at home, and returning to share your stories with family and friends. This has made me realise I love helping others create their own great travelling experiences.

I was born in Zimbabwe and caught the travel bug at an early age. Before coming to Canada to pursue my post-secondary education, I had opportunities to travel in Ethiopia, South Africa, Zambia, Dubai, Hong Kong, and Mainland China. After completing my degree I worked in the airline industry, which served as a bridge into the travel industry. One of the best things about working in travel is the network of connections you make with people and the knowledge you gain about cultures all over the world. When I choose a travel destination, it’s because I want to know more about the Earth, and all the beautiful people on it.

I’ve always loved biking and I’ve been to several places in India on my bike. My most adventurous bike journey was to Ladakh—a 1,200-kilometer journey from where I live in Delhi. I’ve been working in the travel industry for six years now, and it gives me immense pleasure to serve every single customer. It’s really easy to connect with all the travellers that I assist and guide, as we all have a respect and passion for what this beautiful world has to offer. I believe in going with the flow, and no matter where my travels take me in the future, I am pretty sure that I will find my share of happiness there.

I wrote my first airline ticket in summer vacations of grade 10, in a family owned travel business back in Bombay India, which was established by our grandfather in 1938.  Travel became passion right then and I haven’t looked back since. Joined Air France after graduation, had the fortune of working for Gulf Air, Malaysia Airlines, Qatar Airways and other major travel businesses around the globe. My pursuit of cities, beaches, cultural, adventure, eco, nature, wilderness & architecture tourism has taken me to over 460 cities in 53 countries and am still counting.  Our friendly spy, Google just sent me travel account of 2018 that counted 11 countries, 55 cities and 147,000 km i.e. 2.5 times around the globe.  My favourite places so far are home i.e. Canada, Empty Quarter Desert in Arabian Gulf and South Island - New Zealand. Bucket list includes Antarctica, a train journey from Moscow to Vladivostok via Central Asia & Panama Canal on top, in a yearning of about +60 places. Travel is the best experience human race can attain and I just love to share it with our clients.

I first realized my passion for travel when I went to college, where I met many like-minded travellers. I love the opportunity to explore new cultures and how people live in different countries. I enjoy hearing about their daily lives and I learn from all of their stories. I have always been a mountain-lover, so I’ve spent some time in the major mountainous regions of India, such as Rishikesh, Manali and Dharamshala. I also enjoy the beaches of Daman and Goa. And I hope to travel more in the future, as the high I get from it is simply incredible.

When it comes to travel, my personal mantra is: 'Travel light and with an open mind'. This has served me well in my travel experiences across Asia, Europe, Africa, and Latin America & it's also been useful in my career, which has included travel industry roles in the Philippines and India - and now in Canada. 

I joined Indus Travel in 2009 and I've worked with many groups from across the USA and Canada, putting together some amazing trips to places like Peru, South Africa, Italy and Ireland. I really enjoy working in group travel as it helps people to gain a deep understanding of different cultures and business procedures across the world.

Since I was a teenager, I was determined to become a travel guide. Following my dreams, I studied and successfully graduated with a Masters Diploma in Tourism and Hospitality Management in Ukraine. I did not become a tour guide, instead, I am the one who works behind the scenes, participating significantly in creation of new products. Today, with 20 years of experience, I am blessed to have an extraordinary and interesting job and I consider travel professionals, like me, to be extremely lucky as we bring the light, joy and happiness to people during their holidays. I have traveled vastly in Europe and I take any and every opportunity to travel for business, with family or friends like my recent trip to Ecuador & Galapagos Islands which was marvelous! South America is big on my travel bucket list and I daydream about Brazil, Argentina and Chile altogether with some other countries like Australia and New Zealand.

For the past seven years I have been working in the Travel Industry. I choose this career path because of my love of travel and exploring new destinations as well as wanting to experience other cultures for myself. With so many countries home to different people, different religions and different cultures I feel it is better to explore than sit at home. We need to enjoy this beautiful world we live in. I still remember the remarkable experience I had when I went Saudi Arabia, I learned so many new things, tried new foods, learned more about their religion as well as their culture. Travel is the best way to do this and I like helping people discover what is out there.

I was born in Himachal Pradesh and caught the travel bug at an early age. I have an insatiable thirst for travel and experiences that involve taking risks (much to my mother’s dismay) and learning about new cultures. I’m basically a travel junkie who is always in the midst of planning my next trip! I think I have wanderlust in my genes and I think I will have it for life. I am a wanderer, hiker, biker, trekker and an adventure-seeker. Travelling changed my life so much that I can’t imagine a life without it. It is because of this that I now work in the travel industry. I have so many places on my bucket list it is hard to decide which country is next but I think it will be one of the European countries as they are rich in history, culture and nature.

What started with traveling for school turned into a passion for exploring new cultures. I have always loved meeting new people and discovering foreign countries. What better way to learn about people and culture than by traveling? I was born in Zimbabwe and have been lucky enough to have lived, worked, and traveled extensively throughout my home country, Canada, and the Netherlands. I have traveled to South Africa, Barbados, Belgium, England, and the United Arab Emirates and hope to visit many more countries around the world! While I originally studied psychology, I have gained experience working in the airline industry. Moving onto the travel industry seemed to be the next logical step which combines all the things that I love! I enjoy learning about people and guiding them on their journeys to discover new places and experience new cultures.

When I was 16, I got my first summer job landscaping which allowed me to explore different destinations in my home country. I became fascinated by travelling and knew that someday I wanted to work in the tourism industry so I could explore further afield. I studied Commerce at university before getting my first job as an Airport Representative for an inbound tour operator. This is where I learned the basics of tourism; being on the frontline, gave me the opportunity to interact with people from around the world. It is this job that taught me how much I loved sharing and introducing others to different cultures, that travel is one of the greatest ways to experience these exchanges. I underwent a career change to follow my passion — travel.  When it comes to personal preferences, I have always been a lover of cultural, beach and wild life destinations.  Now at Indus, I get the opportunity to help create memorable trips and adventures that our travellers will never forget. Outside of work I love to listen music, go cycling and play badminton.

After earning my degree in Travel Management, I worked in a number of different positions before finding my way to Indus Travels, airport ground staff, an airline ticketing agent as well as working as a travel agent offering travel to Japan and the Philippines. I learned that I love assisting travellers with making their holiday travel plans and knowing they are going to have a wonderful time discovering the world. I have traveled all around the Philippines as well as visiting South Korea, Singapore, Bali, Thailand and Taiwan. Now that life is getting back to normal I look forward to exploring more of this vast world!

My fascination with beaches started when I was a kid. My family moved to one of the beautiful provinces in Camarines Sur, Philippines. We lived right in front of the beach so I learned to swim and free dive at an early age. My curiosity has played a large role in my current choices in life. Working in the travel industry is part of that. I studied Travel Management in college which gave me the opportunity discover what I really want to do with my life. I worked as freelance tour guide while studying; this introduced me to many people from around the world and peaked my interest in travel even more. I realised that not only did I like making people’s travels fun but I want to personally be a part of their journey; helping with their travel arrangements and ultimately helping them create lasting memories.

My interest in travel began when my school used to take us for trekking trips to different places all over India every Autumn break. During my university years I used to sneak out alone to a new place at least once a month and this led me to do post graduation studies in tourism. Being a tourism student we were given the opportunity to take many class trips and the best part was that we designed our own itineraries, had to book our own coach, hotels for the entire class, then do the costing which turned out to be great experience for my work here at Indus! I have been to Thailand, Bali, Singapore, Malaysia, Myanmar and  Japan; a country I was always fascinate by from a young age. I have had the pleasure of meeting many people from different continents and have even made some lifelong friends working in this industry. I enjoy making travel arrangements and providing solutions to client’s travel needs so they come home with fantastic memories.
