Travel style

My travel style is a mosaic of rich experiences, having called Italy, South Africa, and Thailand home. I find my haven in luxury boutique hotels, drawn to their unique designs that echo the essence of the local culture. Whether it's getting lost in the pages of a captivating book on a beach or eating a delicious meal after a day of exploration, my journey is a harmonious blend of relaxation and discovery. Immerse me in the heart of new cultures, and you'll find me delving into the depths of history, savoring local cuisines, and forging connections with the vibrant tapestry of locals. My passion extends beyond personal exploration; I thrive on curating travel experiences that seamlessly weave my clients into the fabric of local culture, fostering a deeper connection and appreciation for the places they visit.

Laura's reviews

Love love loved working with Laura! Our hotel was difficult to physically get to and she seamlessly worked with the hotel to make sure we got there without a hitch. She made our journey stress-free and fun! She even made sure we had a romantic dinner on our last night there

Amazing! Laura was so easy to work with, efficient and responsive. She is also such a pleasure, so it made the booking experience very seamless for us.

Laura thoroughly planned my trip and ensured that all my arrangements were confirmed prior to arrival in Peru. She is very detail oriented and tailored the experience to my interests and needs.

Laura was fabulous. She invested time to understand my interests, found the perfect hotel, and created an itinerary that was the perfect balance between sightseeing and relaxing. Laura took the time and interest to select the best tours and experiences for me. The Storm Spa was the best, relaxing, beautiful setting and new experience for me with the warm waters and gourmet meal. Also very cost effective and great value for the day.
