I’m Deborah, nice to meet you!
I’m Deborah Durrfeld, a reporter, producer, tourguide, 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 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. As I didn’t grow up with a lot of traveling possibilities, there was only one option: work, save money and create the traveling life myself. After working in several media and television jobs, I made the decision 15 years ago to quit my job, go on a world journey and work along the road to maintain myself.
I traveled through more than 20 countries, while working in hotels, as a reporter, producer, tourguide and English conversation teacher. All kind of jobs to make money, maintain myself and be able to travel and explore! After these adventures, I settled down in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and started to work in media again. I used the city as a base for exploring and working in television and events around the entire continent.
Now 15 years later, I can easily say that I have visited most Central and South American countries dozens of times and created a strong network in the media and traveling industry. I was able to contribute to many human interest items and TV reports on archaeology, markets, nature, art, and history, wich taught me a lot about a country and its culture. And Asia followed, as my work offered new opportunities and included that part of the world for me as well.
I have been working for many international broadcasters such as BBC World, MTV, Travel Channel, ZDF and brands such as Absolut, Nokia and Harman Kardon. Besides that I’m hosting travel seminars and I’m working as a guide, accompanying photographers and fellow travelers on their trips around the continent.
The world is a beautiful and exciting place! 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.
