I was weaned on traveling and, during my previous career as an attorney, was constantly besieged with requests for "my trip intel." Allora, I decided to use my passion to inspire others to discover destinations and fall in love with Our World. I traced my ancestry last summer (2022) and explored ten countries and one Principality. 2023: Thailand, the Caribbean and several wellness retreats in Italy. Ambitious hiking in Norway too! Let's see what I can discover for you this year!

I can share the best cave hotel in Cappadocia or the most amazing forest Onsen experience in Japan (I am Certified Japan Specialist).... don't hesitate to get in touch with me at jsocha@sbtravel or

My goal: to get you the best value for your investment. Thanks to my affiliation with Virtuoso, I have partners worldwide with whom I collaborate to design your bespoke holidays. I can also get you perks and privileges. Please consider me your travel architect as I give your travel adventures the same enthusiasm and attention to detail as my own. I love my ever-expanding stable of loyal clients.

And I believe in the healing power of travel! Please read more about it in my book The Red Bandanna Travel Book: The Medicine of Traveling. You can find it at or on amazon.
