Meet Gioggia!


How long have you been in Australia, in Byron and at BWT?
“I’ve been in Australia for nearly 2 years. I lived in the beautiful Sydney most of the time, and I moved to Byron Bay just 2 months ago, when I started to work for Backpackers World Travel.”

What brought you to Australia? Where is your favourite place?
“I came to Australia when I finished university, just for travelling…and then I got stuck for 2 years! I have been travelling the East Coast, Melbourne, and Tasmania. My favourite place is the Great Barrier Reef in Cairns, I love scuba diving and snorkeling and that’s the best place to do it!”

Where have you travelled? Where would you like to travel?
“I Love travelling, that’s why I love my job so much 🙂 I traveled Europe quite a lot, I have been to Mexico twice and North Africa. Next on my bucket list are Asia and South America! The best thing I have ever done in my life is definitely sky dive in Australia…Everybody should try it:)”

What’s the one trip you would recommend in Byron? Where’s the best place to go out?
“The tour I liked the most in Byron bay is Kayaking with dolphins (after skydiving). The best place to eat in Byron is DIP, I love having breakfast there and the coffee is amazing!”

Tell us more about yourself…
“I am Italian, really active and energetic. I love extreme activities, like rafting and bungy jumping. I love surfing (even if I am still a beginner) boxing, and reading. I studied foreign languages and literature, English and French,  and I have a masters degree in Event Management. In the future I see my self managing a travel agency in Europe.”

Meet Luiz!
