Trui is a Belgian journalist who moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan with her family in the Summer of 2016. Not the ‘domestic goddess’ type, she decided to make the most of the waiting-for-the work-permit-time. She became fascinated with Detroit and studied to become a tour guide.

There is so much to see, so much to tell. As a journalist and former editor of Knack Weekend, Trui knows a thing or two about storytelling.

Trui is a member of Via Americana, a unique tour guide alliance of six European women who fell in love with their new hometowns in the United States. They offer custom-made tours (in Dutch, French or English) that take their visitors to well-known landmarks, but also off the beaten track in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC and Detroit.
