Elena Link developed an early passion for geography and her constant wanderlust made her want to be able to make her home anywhere in the world so it wasn’t surprising that she decided to study tourism. Her first job after graduating from the University of Trier led to her becoming a tourism consultant at the European Tourism Institute. In 1999 she moved to the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, where she worked for ten years as a PR and marketing consultant responsible for the German-speaking, Northern and Eastern European markets. She has been with us since 2012 as a Marketing Executive.
"We don't yearn for certain places, but for the feelings they evoke in us."
