PAULO ZAMBRANO, Project Manager
KANDICE MOORE, Coordinator
I started working in the travel industry as a result of the way my own International travels have affected me. From my very first trip overseas, I developed a passion for seeking out new experiences, connecting with local people and other travelers, having interesting cross-cultural exchanges – learning about the differences and commonalities of countries and cultures from around the globe. All of these things have helped shape who I am and how I interact with the world, and I want to help others have similar experiences.
Over the past 20 years I have dedicated myself to helping travel agents connect their clients with amazing experiences in Europe, North, South & Central America, Australia, New Zealand and Asia. My career has included positions as a Travel Guide, Business Development Manager, National Accounts Manager, Director of Sales and General Manager - always at travel companies who share my passion for experiential travel, and who place a strong emphasis on up-close-and-personal connections with the local culture, people and food around the world.
The many different styles of travel offered by Trafalgar and Brendan Vacations, combined with the Authentic, Effortless and Fun philosophy which is the basis for all of our guided vacations, makes this an extremely exciting ‘next step’ on my journey.
