Where to start as a recent graduate

Ok, so I've recently graduated with a bachelors specialising in tourism management, I have 7 years of customer service experience (bar woman, waitress, croupier), excellent computer skills, fluent in English, oh and I'm a South African that can't speak German. I have a problem... I've never had a career path plotted out for myself (when I grow up I want to be a ???) and now that I've landed up in Switzerland I have no idea what type of job I should be looking for, nevermind where to start looking for it!

Anyone got any ideas what type of job I want to do?

Just organise and lead tours to places you want to visit as a tourist ... worked for a guy I went to school with!
