Born in the Constanta, Romania, Ticu began his career in the travel industry at young age guiding short tours in the Black Sea in his summer holidays. This led to longer tours such as “The Painted Wonders of Bucovina”, “Bucharest – the Little Paris”, “Dracula – between myth and history” for various cruise ships and being invited to give lectures on board.
He then graduated from Bucharest Physics University and worked for 10 years as a high school teacher in Romania, whilst continuing to guide in the holidays. He was also a member of “Pro-Democracy”, a Romanian NGO involved in elections-surveillance in Romania, Bulgaria and Albania (under OSCE).
In 1998 he was invited to the United States as an exchange professor where he graduated with a Masters in Science of Education. He has been working as an Assistant Professor at Arkansas State University - Beebe since 2000 and teaches a variety of courses including Physics, Earth Science and Environmental Science.
|Guest speakers and other staff (whether
or not advertised in our brochures) are usually booked many months
in advance of the holiday and sometimes they become unavailable, even
at very short notice. If this happens, we will always do our best
to make suitable alternative arrangements but any such change shall
not be regarded as a major change and we cannot be held liable or
responsible in these circumstances.
