May 1998 – Nov 1998
Costa Cruise Line
Genova – Italy –
Position: Tour Escort
The job involved selling and coordinating the excursions on board the cruise boat as well as providing any kind of tourist information and supervising the excursions on each destination by escorting the passengers and lease with the local tour guides. In most destinations I would have to translate simultaneously from English into Italian anything said by the guide tour. The subjects were mainly History, Art and Geography.

Jan 1999 – April 2000
Hoverspeed Fast ferries
Dover – Kent –
United Kingdom
The job involved providing travel information, selling tickets and checking in passengers and vehicles that would travel across the Channel to France and the rest of Europe. So I would daily speak French, Italian and Spanish.

Saga Holidays
Sandgate, near Folkstone – Kent –

Position: Guides and Venues Executive
The job involved planning the itineraries of all European tours and contracting the venues to visit and the tour guides for each destination. A more specific planning was organized for Smithsonian and Road Scholar brochures. Proofreading the brochures was part of my job too. Occasionally, I would personally travel to report the quality of the tours.

I also developed two of my hobbies into a business, creating an alternative Italian restaurant with an art space in the town I live.

Italian Restaurant and Art Gallery
Utila – Bay Islands –
Central America
Position: Owner
I run my own business in this Caribbean bilingual island where tourism is based on diving. Tourists from all over the world visit Utila every year and I decided to introduce an art space inside my restaurant where tourists have an opportunity to meet and create different kinds of arts.
I take care of everything concerning the running of the business:
Book Keeping
Coordinating events and art classes during the day
Offering fine dinners at night
Coordinating art exhibitions twice a month
Providing tourist information in any language
