I was born in Sri Lanka many decades ago. After my secondary education I joined the Sri Lanka Technical College, Colombo where I studied Tourism and worked as a German Lecturer for some time. In 1978 I got a part-time teaching job at the Goethe Institute, Colombo. I was trained as a German Language teacher in Germany and India. From 2002 till end of July 2012 I worked at the Embassy of Switzerland as Visa Officer, Civil Status Officer and Press Attaché. Since I have traveled to many countries, I enjoy my current job at Shanti Travel in Sri Lanka. I love sharing this tear drop shaped island with curious travellers who are looking for new experiences and charming encounters.
