Born in the USSR on International Tourism Day, Irina was always destined for a life in tourism. Some of her earliest and most cherished memories are of lengthy journeys on the great Siberian express, travelling from Moscow to the steppes of Mongolia. There were also holidays on the exotic shores of the Black Sea in Bulgaria, and a time when she left home to live as an exchange student in Spain. All this before the age of 12 no less! Fast forward 10 years later, and with a degree in Linguistics from the Moscow State University of Tourism, Irina followed her heart to South Africa, where she worked for a number of leading tourism companies in various Sales and Marketing roles. Passionate about service excellence, she is excited to share her love for Africa with the international market. If she had to choose a different career, she would probably be a chef. Creating family traditions by cooking for and with her two little children is one of the greatest joys of her leisure time.
