Travel is learning more about yourself through the lens of others. It is building life – long memories with those you love. It is opening your mind. It is giving back. It is transformational.

Lisa's Story

Having circled the globe for over two decades, I’ve had the privilege of immersing myself in diverse cultures and experiences. What I’ve come to cherish even more is the opportunity to share the incredible joys of travel with others.

My passion lies in sustainable travel. It’s not just about witnessing the wonders of the world; it’s about giving back to the places we visit. My awakening to this perspective came during a family trip to Costa Rica, where my 13-year-old kids and I organized an event at a local school. We taught art, played educational games, and provided school supplies and lunch. The excitement and gratitude of the Costa Rican children left a profound impact. As my son eloquently put it, “that’s the best thing I’ve ever done.”

I’m not just a travel advisor; I’m a curator of meaningful experiences. I don’t merely observe cultures; I wholeheartedly dive in. For me, travel is about more than the destination; it’s about the people and the environment.

My mission is to help others explore new horizons, connect with remarkable individuals, and embrace the rich tapestry of cultures that our world offers. My journey has led me from the world of global finance to become a travel advisor with a deep commitment to sustainable and community-driven adventures. Together, let’s craft your next trip, one that promises to be truly unforgettable.
