Hi and welcome to My Travel Atelier!
I am Christina, a travel and hotel enthusiast with Spanish and Danish roots. I live in wonderful Copenhagen, where I manage exciting projects at one of the largest hotels in the city by day – and share my travel experiences and tips here at My Travel Atelier by night.
I grew up in the countryside in Denmark, traveling frequently to Barcelona, Spain, where much of my family live (my mum is from Barcelona – she and my dad, who is Danish, met at a language school in Germany back in 1983).
As a little girl, I saw the beautiful Air Hostesses in the airports and knew I wanted to be like them when I grew up; traveling the world in a nice uniform. And so it was; I finished high school in Denmark and moved to Barcelona to study PR full time. In the evenings, I took an Air Hostess course and got a job as an Air Hostess at a Spanish airline.
After one year of flying out of Barcelona Airport (and almost three years of living in Barcelona in total), I was restless and needed a change. I was lucky to get a job at SAS (Scandinavian Airlines) and was based in Copenhagen, from where I explored Europe in my new blue uniform for three years.
After a total of four years in the sky, I realised that those early (like really early!) mornings, always changing schedules and constant budget cuts in the industry were not for me anymore. I still wanted to travel, but for pleasure instead of business. So I quit the uniform and started in the hotel business.
I am now married and live and work in Copenhagen. We travel as much as we can, as often as we can and as long as we can. I believe in the saying that “Life isn’t meant to be lived in the same place” – at least not for me!
My Travel Atelier is the place where I share my tips and recommendations. But it’s not a one-way channel, I would love to get some inspiration the other way too, so please leave a comment or contact me using the contact form below if you have any thoughts or recommendations!
I hope that My Travel Atelier can give you the inspiration you need for planning your own adventures.
Travel well, travel often,
