My name is Violeta Mut, and I was born in Ronda, Malaga, on 3rd July 1987. My mother is Spanish and my father German, which explains my surname…. When I was 4 my family moved to La Alpujarra (Órgiva), where I grew up, until I came to Granada to study in 2005, and I settled down here. In Órgiva I learned English from my British neighbours and friends, although I also studied in primary school, high school and university.
I decided to study Tourism because I like languages and love to deal with people from other countries and cultures. After finishing my degree, I worked in several hotels as a receptionist, although I wanted to be a tourist guide. I have always liked this profession since I was a child, because my father was a guide, and I always went with him on his routes whenever I could. I love hill walking, taking my dogs out into the country and reading, especially historical fiction. I also play volleyball and practice yoga, to exercise my body and mind.
I earned my tourist guide credentials in 2015, and joined Cicerone in March 2016. I love walking in Granada and rediscovering places that have special meaning for me. One of my favourite places in the Vereda de Enmedio, at the Fuente de la Amapola, which is a wonderful vantage point, especially at dusk. I also love going up to San Miguel Alto to watch the sun go down from there.
