Although Ingrid’s career started with teaching and practicing in the healthcare profession, travel is her passion.
Ingrid's journeys have taken her on treks to the Grand Canyon, Kilimanjaro, Machu Picchu, the Galapagos Islands and Dogon country in Mali.
To Ingrid, travelling stimulates and enriches the senses, creating unforgettable experiences and emotions. Vibrant colours evoke visions of the landscape of Rajasthan, Bangkok’s Grand Palace and the markets of Bali. The aromas of a spring bouquet bring back memories of the flower markets of Amsterdam. The heat of a hot summer day creates nostalgic moments of savoring Sicilian gelato on the slopes of Mt. Etna with the kids.
If you mention shopping, you’ll have named one of Ingrid's favourite activities. Ingrid relishes the thoughts of bargain hunting in the bustling markets of the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, Khan-el-Khalili in Cairo, or whirlwind shopping in London, Hong Kong and of course New York.
Ingrid sees travel as emotional experiences you share with family, friends and the new friends you meet along the way.
