As a girl of about 8 or 9 years old I went out to dinner with my parents in a hotel in Amsterdam. My sister and I went off to investigate and discovered the reception. I was amazed; people with lots of luggage, all the various languages being spoken and the many colourful leaflets for excursions. From that moment on I knew that I wanted to work in the tourist industry.
During my schooling I worked at a travel company and was given the opportunity to join the touroperating department. I met Annemieke at Odysseus Deluxe Travel Collection almost 20 years ago. The planning and calculation of (round) trips appeals to me enormously. I feel privileged that I was able to travel during these years, visiting the most beautiful places and hotels in the world, such as Costa Rica, the Seychelles and Dubai. But for me personally camping in a safari tent in our own country is also a possibility. As a member of the team of Vos Van Loon & Partners I assist Jan with the business end of the market and Mirella with individual reservations. For us no trip or tour is standard and quality and service are of the utmost importance. Being a member of this small team feels like being in a “warm bath”.
