Director of Sales for Germany, Austria & Switzerland
Claudia's story ...
Born in Indonesia, attended school in Japan, studied in Germany and with a mixed German, Indonesian and Dutch heritage, Claudia will always be an explorer at heart.
Claudia has assembled an impressive resume that includes many years working with the Japan National Tourism Organisation in Germany, sales manager for ICS Travel Group, and now our Director of Sales for Germany, Austria and Switzerland. During that time she has attended a myriad of trade fairs and roadshows, and has built up extensive contacts within the travel industry, particularly within Germany, where she now lives.
However, these achievements pale in comparison to her most notable work – as mum to her gorgeous young daughter.
When not travelling ...
The perfect day would see Claudia curled up with a good book or going for a long walk with Lula, her puppy – but only when mother duties are over!
Funniest travel memory ...
Relaxing in a hot spring bath in Japan, Claudia got into conversation with a Japanese lady, who handed over her business card when leaving the bath. To this day, Claudia doesn’t know where that business card came from – as they were both as naked as the day they were born!
Claudia’s Travel Tip
“In Myanmar, take the train from Pyin Oo Lwin accross the Gotheik Viaduct. The sheer drop below is dizzying – but incredible! At one of the stops before the viaduct, local vendors on the platform offer all kinds of snacks on trays passed through the train windows.“
