Gretchen has been a global explorer with a passion for cultural immersion from an early age. Traveling regularly to Europe as a child to visit family and friends, Gretchen learned French at a young age and spent much time in France, Germany and southern Poland. She started her university studies in Lugano, Switzerland, just a short distance from Milan, where she pursued her academic interests in anthropology and art. Her thirst for language and culture led her to Spain, where she embarked on a year-long adventure split between Madrid and Cadiz in Andalucia, delving into the intricacies of Spanish linguistics and translation. Combining her love for travel and her regional expertise, Gretchen has dedicated years to crafting unparalleled travel experiences, specializing in regions like the Basque Country, Spain, Portugal, Puglia, Switzerland, the Dolomites, Iceland, Denmark, and much of South America.
