Fresh off the boat and arriving in the US in 2001, I embraced American culture and kindled my curiosity for global diversity and self-discovery. You see, I'm South Sudanese, Ugandan, and a global citizen driven by my love for travel and my ability to enrich the journeys of future travelers.

Guided by this chosen path, I'm dedicated to helping others unveil the world's captivating hidden gems in a responsible and sustainable way. As a solo traveler, I understand the stress of trip planning all too well, which is why I'm here to anticipate any uncertainties that may come your way.

Here's my offer: I'll take care of all the pesky travel logistics so that you can relax and enjoy your trip before your vacation. Do we have a deal?

I'm Lona, a new england based luxury travel advisor, aesthete, event designer, and hotel snob.
