Welcome to the very FIRST blog about Belgians in the world who work in the tourism industry! These posts will be filed under Allez les Belges. As I hail from Belgium myself, I wanted to give the spotlight to some fellow Belgians who have a tourism-related job. Make sure to keep following the blog so you don't miss any of our updates!
Today we meet Leentje De Leeuw:
What is your current job/role in the tourism industry: I am the owner of Chica-GO, a tour company in Chicago (started in 2015). I organize city tours in Dutch, French and English, by foot or bicycle. With its 77 neighborhoods Chicago holds suprises, even for locals. I will gladly reveal the hidden gems during one of my tours or organize a multi day tailored package including both off the beaten path parts and the highlights of the city.
What is your own favorite vacation destination: I love city trips in Europe: London, Berlin and a recent discovery: Sevilla, Spain!
What is the motto you live by: Work hard, play hard.
What do you miss most about Belgium: Besides my family and friends I miss 'een terraske doen' (in English: going out for a drink on an outside terrace) and of course food items (smoske preparé, curryworst special, grey shrimp,...)
