What started as Tom & Lora’s personal blog about travel, food, and fun, has transformed into a passion for creating travel experiences for others. At Escape2, WE take particular care to create your own fantastic travel experience.

The Backstory. Tom was born in Thailand with an adventurous spirit. Lora’s wanderlust started as a toddler with travels to visit relatives in Asia. With a lifetime of extensive travel experiences and over 30 years in the medical profession, Tom and Lora combined their business savvy and wanderlust to create unique travel experiences for others. In addition to a love of travel, food, fun, and adventure, both are PADI Certified Scuba Divers.

We are currently living in Japan for the last 3 years and are looking forward to returning to the US. Our time spent in Japan gave us an opportunity to travel extensively throughout Asia and this part of the continent. It has given us an insight into this side of the world in which we could assist you in your travels.

Whatever your travel interests may be, we’ll work with you to inspire your own wanderlust. Our connection with Virtuoso’s network of preferred partners and access to local experts will get you exclusive benefits around the world.

We look forward to working with you to create your own travel story.
