About the Authors

Hi! Hello! G’day!

Whether you are from the UK, Australia or any other location around the globe, Welcome!

I’m Maureen, and I live in a small town called La Mata, near Torrevieja, in the Alicante province of Spain, and I LOVE to travel!

Let me share with you a bit about my background… By the way, there’s no ‘ideal’ background for the Tour Guide profession, but experience in dealing with the public is definitely a plus! .

Before becoming a tour leader, I was a personnel consultant, languages teacher, travel agent, communications trainer, travel writer, and book publisher, in roughly that order. And, throughout my early career, I frequently organized and led group and family tours in Europe.

When I first heard about the tour guide job, it felt like it was made for me! I love languages, I like socializing and working with people, and I love showing off. I got a degree in French at age 22, and have a load of other communication based qualifications such as speaking six other foreign languages, to varying levels – so, being a tour guide couldn’t have been more perfect!

When I’m not working I like watching movies, listening to world music, reading, sea swimming …oh, and, of course, travelling!

I’m divorced, and have three gorgeous children. I can’t stand tomato pips, tripe or sauerkraut; otherwise I can eat pretty much anything, which is definitely a great help when working in far-flung places.

Although I’ve travelled extensively – to around 70 countries – I haven’t actually worked in most of them. I have led tours in the following places:

France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany

Hong Kong, India, China, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand


Brazil, Cuba

USA (California, Miami, New York, Pennsylvania, New Orleans)

Morocco, Gambia, Libya

Australia, New Zealand
