About Me

I've always loved exploring new places

...and revisiting those places that have a piece of my heart. It seems as though ticking off destinations and tourist sites when traveling has become the norm for so many people. 

I encourage you to take the time to slow down, relax, and enjoy. You never know what you might be missing when you just breeze through town taking snapshots on your phone.

i make travel personal and extraordinary

My passion for crafting custom travel didn’t begin on the streets of London, or the windblown dunes of Namibia, it began in a dusty attic in Pennsylvania. I grew up on a farm that’s been in my family for five generations. One day when I was little, I decided to explore the attic of the farmhouse where I found a stack of old steamer trunks, covered in peeling, faded stickers from around the world. Beneath a layer of dust, I could read the initials “LW” on the side.

That would be my glamorous great-great grandmother, Louisa White. A small spitfire of a woman, Louisa never turned down a travel adventure. She was forever curious, fiercely independent, and fueled by an insatiable wanderlust. That’s exactly the kind of person I’ve built my business around today. Like Louisa, my clients want to see the world on their own terms, and they don’t want to compromise on style or comfort to see it all. They’re used to the “best of the best,” and they want to experience the best a new destination has to offer, too.

Does that sound like you? Then, welcome.
