What’s your business name?
Travel Like a Local

What do you do?
I help people planning their holidays, providing all the necessary information and going beyond the standard Lonely Planet tips, thanks to my local connections. I’m working on an extensive network of independent local enterprises to rely on, to help the visitor know the most exciting realities and to avoid large associations and retail chains.
Aimed to those who don’t have time to plan and don’t have local connections but want to live a unique experience.

How did it start?
It started out of passion for the smaller independent ventures and out of frustration for a lack of accessibility to them if you are a foreign visitor.

What are you working on at the moment?
Currently I’m working on the content and layout of the mini-site promoting this service, while working on a network of reliable partners and doing too many other things.

What are you looking to get out of Union St?
I’m here to escape the distractions and the isolation of my home studio, to find inspiration and interact with other people.
