There are at least two ways to do the travel agent work: one is to, serious and professional mind you, to indicate to the second of the demands of a holiday destination, showing brochures and searching facilities, special offers, value relationships. The other is to excite the customer and maybe direct you to places you may then enter the heart. A little 'sentimental, a bit' psychologist, a little 'adventure companion.
Fabrizio Labianca, Tuscany Sansepolcro, for fifteen years carries out this type of profession and is responsible for dozens of "sick of Africa" especially in Watamu.
"I fell in love Kenya thanks to my father, who sent me over to the job of organizing trips, even a passion for Africa, already after the first holiday here. Since then, every year, I can organize a group of people to make them live an emotion that goes beyond the simple trip to another continent, to the sea or to warm or even on safari ".
Fabrizio has a healthy passion, which cultivates a long time and has led him to immerse himself in the reality of the Kenyan coast by attending the local population, learning Swahili, learning new things every time with the curiosity of one who is at home and wants to partaker also other people a feeling that feels wonderful.
