Katharina originally grew up in Germany and now lives in Newcastle. She started working for Artisan Travel in November 2014 within the product and operations department and is responsible for developing new and exciting holiday itineraries. Katharina has found her dream job within the travel industry and can't imagine doing a different job.
Travelling is her passion, as she likes to explore new destinations, go on adventures, learn about local culture and of course try local delicacies.
Having worked in the travel industry for a number of years, Katharina took the opportunity to take one year off work to travel around Australia. As you can probably guess, this is one of her favourite destinations so far. Katharina started her adventure in Melbourne. Then spent New Year's Eve in Sydney watching the amazing fireworks, and travelled from there to many amazing places. Her favourite part was Western Australia, as she was far away from the tourist tracks and she could drive for hours, without even seeing one single person! She loved camping in the Karijini National Park and snorkelling with a 16 metre long whale shark!
Katharina has travelled widely throughout Europe and has had the opportunity to visit the beautiful Islands of the Azores whilst working at Artisan Travel. She has experienced many activities, such as cycling, climbing and abseiling. But her favourite one was the dolphin snorkelling. She enjoyed the stunning views from a different perspective and explored the beautiful coastline that the Azores has to offer. Simply amazing!
- Heading to Churchill, the polar bear capital of the world, and being lucky enough to see five wild bears.
- Driving a snowmobile and enjoying the incredible scenery with snowy forests and frozen lakes.
- Snorkelling with playful beluga whales in Manitoba. The beauty of this experience is that your encounters with the whales are completely on their terms.
- Exploring the landscape of the Azores and ticking snorkelling with dolphins off my bucket list.
