Da zu stehen, wo ich jetzt stehe, habe ich definitiv und maßgeblich einer einzigen Institution zu verdanken, nämlich den wunderbaren Tourismussschulen Bad Gleichenberg. Schon als Jugendliche wusste ich, dass ich früher oder später einmal dort landen würde, und tatsächlich habe ich auch gleich nach meiner Matura mit so viel positiven Emotionen das “Kolleg für Tourismus- und Freizeitwirtschaft” absolviert, das ich dieses jeder und jedem wärmstens als Ausbildung für’s Leben oder als Start in die Tourismuskarriere/ins Tourismusstudium empfehlen kann.
