Hi, I’m Christina, born in New Zealand from Greek/German parents. 

After completing an arts degree at Auckland University in my early twenties I set off for Europe to visit family, experience new places, people, and cultures. The result was a passion for travel, which continues to this day. On returning home to New Zealand I happily fell into the tourism industry and subsequently over the years have worked with a variety of tourism products including motorhomes, helicopters, ski packages and coach holidays, before finding my “niche” in Inbound Tourism.

 

My second biggest passion after travel is languages. I am fluent in English & German and semi-fluent in French. Last year I took a giant leap and started to learn Modern Greek, a challenge for sure! My favourite way to unwind from life in busy Auckland is a trip to one of New Zealand’s most unique places – Rotorua, for a soak in the warm thermal pools – pure bliss and relaxation!
