Just like us, Tanja is a big Thailand lover. By now she has visited a lot of destinations in the land of smiles and so we asked her if she would like to share her favorite photos with us. Chock dee ka/ krub dear Tanja, on the next beautiful Thailand trip!!!

Hi Tanja, could you please introduce yourself to our readers?

Hello Thailand Magazine readers,

my name is Tanja Reuß. I am 50 years old and come from Germany. To be precise, from Schweinfurt, a city known for its international bearing companies. This is also where I was born.

By profession I am a technical specialist and work in an X-ray laboratory for rolling bearings. In my spare time I am often hiking or riding my mountain bike. Drone photography is another new hobby of mine and in addition, snorkeling equipment is mandatory on every vacation.

But my big passion is traveling, preferably to Asia and here most of all to Thailand.

I wish you a lovely peaceful day!

Tanja Reuß
