Bettina Ruiz Spohr
I was born in 1968 in Santander (Spain), daughter of a Spaniard and a German and raised bilingual in harmony with both cultures, which gave me from the craddle a very precious gift: tolerance and the curiosity to learn about any culture in the world!
Passionate traveller from the age of 6 months, I ended up working in the hospitality business creating, organising, marketing and promoting incentive trips, conventions, product launches, weekend breaks and circuits for Fortune 100 companies, Museum Patrons, wine & gourmet clubs, cultural associations, church comunities, sports and singles' clubs...the list is long.
In 2007 I decided to take a break to study again and I accomplished a master degree in Planning & Management of sustainable Destinations, with which I got an insight and holistic approach on how to implement good practices in the management of tourism destinations from the environmental, economic and social point of view.
Later on, in my journey throgh personal growth, I got involved in
I'm also a writer and story teller in my spare time and continue to grow every day, climbing mountains, setting new goals and small objectives to be a decent person who, by helping others, gets back a lot in life: smiles, hugs and a lot of knowledge from people who are different and unique, as any human being.
Now I live in Barcelona, but I supose I've earned the tittle of citizen of the world: I've lived in Spain, Germany, UK, France, U.S.A. and visited over 30 countries of the world and speak and write fluently Spanish, German, English and French. Now I'm also learning Catalan.
I'm eager to make your acquaintance, whatever you share and have in common with me!
