Introduction:

Since qualifying as a Blue Badge Guide in 2000 I quickly concentrated on extended tours of the South of England. I love showing our guests around the beautiful coastlines, moors and pretty villages of the south and taking them into breathtaking cathedrals, stately homes or castles. In 2011 I also qualified as a nature- and hiking guide with the German "Wanderakademie" and since then also conduct walking tours of Southern England. In the winter time off season I work for German publishers for which I wrote some guide books. I have an MA in History and Theater of the Free University of Berlin (FU Berlin) and used to work in the media before moving to the UK.
