Floortje naar het einde van de wereld
Since 1995 Dessing has covered more than 120 countries in TV programs, that were mostly made by her own production company, such as Arrivals, Yorin Travel, RTL Travel, 3 op Reis and Floortje Naar Het Einde Van De Wereld ("Flora to the End of the World"), for several Dutch TV broadcasters.
In 2011 Dessing and her crew traveled through North Korea, being only the second crew in history to be allowed to film a travel TV-show in that country. She has also written several travel guides.
Fair trade and the environment
Since 2009 Dessing has been a supporter of the Greenpeace climate campaign 'You Turn the Earth.' She has made a point of traveling in more environmentally friendly ways, for example by using public transport more frequently than before. Dessing uses her travels to raise awareness about the earth's vulnerability, and to stress the importance of taking good care of it.
