I grew up in Italy and ever since I was a young child, I’ve had a great curiosity for foreign cultures and languages. This interest led me to study business for the tourism industry and then graduate in foreign languages and cultures, specialising in English and Spanish. While studying, I travelled and lived in several European countries before settling in Ireland. These experiences helped me step easily into the travel industry, combining my passion for travels with a career.

I love travelling. For me, it is a way to connect to the world and learn about cultures, religions, art, food, nature and how human beings relate to each other. This passion also fits nicely with some of my other hobbies, such as photography and cooking — there is nothing more rewarding for me to come home after a trip with great shots and a new recipe to cook!

Expert Activities

Carmen's best travel experience

One of my most memorable and unique travel experiences was volunteering as an English teacher in a small village in Nicaragua. I think that travelling should not only be just about visiting a place, but it can also contribute to something that has a positive impact on our society. My experience as a volunteer was about helping to improve the quality of education in a developing country and having a positive impact on young children.
