How did the travel agency has been founded?
My wife was employed in a Berlin travel agency at the beginning of the 1990s. When the owner wanted to open a travel agency in Forst (Lausitz) in 1993 and could not find any local staff, he asked if she wanted to do so. Our condition at the time was that I join the company. Shortly afterwards we came to Forst.
A few years later we were faced with the decision to go into business for ourselves with the travel agency. In 1998 we were able to open our travel agency.
Moving to a small town as a Berliner, I imagine that could be difficult.
My father told me to think it over. Forst is a semicircle, so the customer circle is limited. Nevertheless, I have not regretted my decision.
Traveling is simply fun, almost everyone likes to travel to get to know the world and other cultures – it never gets bored. Each client is individual, some come to me with exact ideas for their next trip, others get involved with me putting the trips together. Whether it’s a study trip, a wellness trip, a package trip – finding the right thing for everyone – that’s the beauty of it.
