I translate travel literature, guide books, magazines, brochures and all kinds of information created for cultural centers, the hotel industry, ecotourism, travel agencies, restaurants and even sport centers.
The texts can concern tour itineraries, tourist trails, sport activities, cultural events, shopping, cuisine, descriptions of sights, nature and all information regarding travel, holidays and leisure time.
Travel is a great passion of my life: in all its aspects. I love both inner and geographical travel: 900 km on foot to Santiago de Compostela, around the holy mountain of Athos in Greece or to make it on time for the summer solstice dawn at Stonehenge.

I love to commune with nature: with animals, plants and inanimate matter in all its wealth of forms present on our planet.
And I am fascinated by our rich human heritage: ancient cities, monuments, parks, fountains, old legends, history of nations, their culture, music, literature and cuisine.

In Europe: along the Norwegian fjords, through Finnish Lapland, up and down the streets of Tallinn in Estonia or Bruges in Belgium. I like to sit at the bank of the River Thames in quiet and posh Richmond in London or on the stairs near Sacré-Cœur Basilica in Paris or to walk at night in Barcelona and in the winter, when it’s dark, bike in Amsterdam watching the reflection of the frosty moonlight and warm street lamps in the canal waters.
