I have always been obsessed with traveling, seeing new things and stay in different hotels. If you ask my mom she will tell you that this was a hassle! All I ever wanted was to go “somewhere” to stay in a hotel! This has not changed at all! My biggest hobby is to travel, around Iceland but also abroad.
I was raised in Germany but always knew I would end up in Iceland. I moved to Iceland 2004 and started soon working in the travel industry. I am a licensed guide from the Icelandic guide school, but I actually prefer to be backstage deciding what great places people should visit. I went to Hólar university to study tourism and finished my B.A in Tourism Studies. I started working for GJ Travel 2006 and witnessed the industry in Iceland as well as the company grow rapidly. I appreciate that GJ Travel is a family company, so I always want to live up to the name of our founder and his family.
