Fora travel agent Susanna Townsend sits on rock with mountains in background


A native of San Francisco & a travel junkie addicted to exploring incredible places & experiences around the globe. I divide my time between Florence, Lisbon & San Francisco & traveling in between.

Home airports

SFO (San Francisco) FLR (Florence), LIS (Lisbon).

My travel style

I love finding “magic” in each place I go…exploring & discovering things off-the-beaten path as well as finding nice boutique & design hotels, great food (street food to Michelin starred restaurants), local culture & unique experiences.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Taking a road trip throughout Portugal.

  • Celebrating my birthday in Paris.

  • Boating around Isola d’Elba, Italy. 

  • Spending four months in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico immersing myself in the food & culture

Dreaming of:

  • Vietnam.

  • Dancing in Cuba.

  • Sailing around the Turquoise Coast.

  • Hiking Machu Picchu in Peru.

  • Kyoto, Japan.

One thing I can't travel without...

My IPAD (loaded w/movies, Audible books).

Two truths, one lie:

  1. Traveled the world while working as a personal trainer for a well-known celebrity. 

  2. I speak 6 languages fluently. 

  3. Had drinks at the KGB headquarters in Moscow (with all the ex-KGB chiefs).
