Maïthé Levasseur

When I was studying for my B.A. in Tourism and Hotel Management, I had no idea where life would lead me. Today, as a member of the enlightened and inspiring team at the Tourism Intelligence Network, constantly on the lookout for the latest tourism trends and developments, I can say that life is good.
