Sanja Klesic
Sanja was born in Osijek in Croatia. Sanja was a university student when war broke out in the former Yugoslavia. After the war, jobs were scarce, and the agricultural areas near her hometown were peppered with land mines. So Sanja continued her studies. While taking an advanced German language course, she met a local vendor recruiting multilingual lecturers for learning cruises along the Danube, and her career in travel was off! She went on to take additional classes and is now a licensed group leader.
