Reasons for studying tourism

A few words about myself and why i want to study tourism. I am from Germany and moved to Esbjerg to study international tourism. When i graduated in summer 2010 i did not know what i wanted for the future. So I decided to go on a trip far away from my home, to find myself and my interests. After some set-backs because i could not follow my plan to make a practical on the Greenpeace ship Esperanza i concluded to go to Australia instead. So I took on a roadtrip for 5 month in Australia. My first impression of the Australien lifestyle changed my mind. It was magnificent how   many different cultures and people with  interesting background run into each other. I learned to come in contact with various personalities and I liked it.

Concluding I think that the tourism sector is the right thing to work with, it connects different countries and cultures in so many ways.

    I was in Australia for 6 months and I was fascinated by the way the different nationalities and cultures live together side by side in the community as well. I also enjoyed meeting the different people and talking to them – all those interesting conversationes you can get from the questions like “Where are you from?” or “Where are you going to?” are really one of my reasons to work in the tourism industry.
