I’m Deborah, nice to meet you!
I’m Deborah Durrfeld, a reporter, producer, tour guide, host and content creator. As a TV reporter and producer, I have been traveling around the world for the last 15 years, looking for the most scenic places and stories that are worth sharing. With Passport The World, I’m so excited to go beyond and inspire you to explore the world, its countries and beautiful culture.
How did it all start?
As long as I remember, I have been fascinated by other countries and cultures. People traveling the world for an exotic holiday or work trip, were my biggest examples, when I was a teenager. At the age of 21, after working in several media and television jobs, I made the decision to quit my job and leave my life in Amsterdam, to go on a two-year-long world journey and work along the road. I lived in New York, Mexico and Argentina. I worked as a tour guide, host, producer, reporter, English conversation teacher and I volunteered and worked in hotels all over the world. All kind of jobs to maintain myself and be able to travel and explore!
Now 15 years later, I found a way to make travel my full-time job, as a travel reporter, producer, blogger and tour guide. I visited most Central and South American countries dozens of times, being able to create a strong network in the media and traveling industry. And Asia followed…
I was able to contribute to many International documentaries and TV reports on history, markets, nature, art and culture, working for international broadcasters and premium brands such as BBC World, MTV, Travel Channel, ZDF, Absolut, Malibu, Nokia and Harman Kardon. Besides that I’m hosting travel seminars and I’m working as a tourguide, accompanying photographers and fellow travelers on their trips around the Latin American and Asian continent.
The world is a beautiful and exciting place! I met so many people from other countries and cultures and learned about their lives. Let me take you on a journey to discover the world and its countries. Not only by sharing my insider travel tips but also by presenting stories about its culture, art and history.
