Let me take you to the Old World... ♥
I started my career as a travel agent in 1992, got my certificate in 1993 and suddenly, the travel agency I worked for was awarded and made it to the newspapers! How cool is that! :) I can only say that I loved my job very much, and that these years were the most wonderful years of my life.
At the Wadi Qelt in Israel.
Knossos, Crete (Greece).
At Delphi, Greece.
Canary Islands off the coast of Africa, Gran Canary Island.
Pompeii, Italy. I knew I'd end up in the gutter, lol... :)
Cyprus, 4x4 road trips exploring the ancient history of the island.
At the tomb of St. John the Evangelist, Turkey.
Studying the treasures of Tutanchamun at the Cairo Museum, Egypt.
With Argiris, the tour guide, in Athens, Greece.
Going into the Zeus cave, Crete, Greece.
At Glastonbury Tor, looking at where Avalon might have been. It's a circular field just beneath the Tor, where the priestesses may have lived, 18 centuries ago. Glastonbury has always intrigued me, especially after reading Marion Zimmer-Bradley's books, and visiting the sites, the ancient cathedral ruins, the Tor... it all felt so familiar. This site meant as much to me as all the other ancient places mentioned above, so I felt I needed to mention it in my little list on this page.
Now that I have settled in Occitania, France, the traveling has become more local. This time I am not following a tour guide through other countries; now I am myself a tour guide, trying to make this ancient realm come to life for my own groups and individual travelers, who visit Occitania from around the world. In a way, Occitania has become my PowerPoint presentation in which I am able to reveal the many layers of history that shaped our modern day western civilization as we have come to know it.
