Maria Gaillez | Travelbound Tour Co-ordinator

Maria Gaillez

I guess you could say travel is ingrained in me. Born to Argentinian parents in Ecuador, I spent 5 years living in the USA before moving to The Netherlands for 2 years and then Madrid for 11 years. I’ve now spent 6 years in Brighton and with its quirky little lanes and eclectic mix of shops I have loved every minute of it. I feel my earlier travel experiences as a child have helped me become very open-minded and sociable. I’ve been lucky enough to visit a number of Europe’s major cities and consider each destination to provide something very unique. Travel can teach you so much about the communities we live in and the customs that exist. I want to explore this further by ticking more countries within Asia off my list, starting with Cambodia. Prior to joining Travelbound I spent 11 years working with children, which has helped me in understanding the needs and requirements of Party Leaders.

About me: Needless to say I am a bilingual Spanish speaker. I love being out and about exploring, socialising and I absolutely adore animals! I like to keep fit with yoga and am pretty good at basic hula hooping. I’m still working on the hoop tricks!

Favourite city: Difficult to decide as I feel like I still have so much of the world to see! Barcelona probably tops my list as it is such a beautiful, cosmopolitan city with amazing architecture.
