AUTHOR, TEACHER & TOUR GUIDE
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/Guide, I was a personnel consultant, languages teacher, travel agent, communications trainer, travel writer, and also a book publisher, in roughly that order. Also, 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 also, of course, travelling!
I’m divorced, and also have three gorgeous children. I can’t stand tripe; and I’m allergic to skate (a flat fish), otherwise I can eat pretty much anything, which is definitely a great help when working in far-flung places.
Although I’ve traveled extensively – to over 70 countries – I haven’t actually worked in most of them. I have led tours in the following places:
Europe: France, Spain, Italy
Asia: Hong Kong, India, China, Vietnam
Middle East & Africa: Morocco
South America: Brazil, Cuba
Central America: Mexico
Pacific: Australia, New Zealand
