Don’t let the long hours and intensive research it takes to plan an immersive trip stop you from taking the kind of imaginative journey you’ve been longing for.
Hand it all off to me, so you can escape to the extraordinary, absolutely effortlessly.
Don’t just settle for a “visit”—immerse yourself in the fascinating culture, wild natural beauty, and particular customs of your destination on a journey that takes you beyond the ordinary.
My deep knowledge of luxury camps, lodges, and intimate boutique hotels, and my connections to expert guides and tour outfitters, allows you to see your destination through a truly local lens.
Whether you’re dreaming of a rousing safari expedition, exploratory cruise, or restful resort stay—or anything in between—I’ll add in just the right dose of discovery to your itinerary, so you come home with a real sense of the place you’ve visited.
Think: A ukulele lesson with a Hawaiian elder, an Umbrian truffle hunt led by a trained truffle dog, or an afternoon spent in your safari guide’s local village. I can connect you to private monument or museum visits, cooking classes and market tours, or even multi-day guided journeys into spellbinding wilderness. For wildlife lovers and advocates, we can add visits to conservation projects and ethical animal encounters, such as one of Africa’s elephant sanctuaries.
Adventure by day, indulge each night. Always awaiting you is gorgeous lodging offering delectable cuisine and extraordinary service. From mobile tented camps in the African savannah to views out over the glistening sea, enjoy a journey crafted just for you.
I’m here to help you travel well and do good. Whenever possible, we’ll prioritize eco-conscious camps and properties that are proactive in their conservation and sustainability efforts, local-led experiences that economically support the communities you visit, and excursions that promote cross-cultural understanding and bolster conservation efforts.
If you’re traveling with your children, we’ll collaborate on activities that help them grow into global citizens and bold, curious travelers.

I can’t wait to hear about your trip! After you return home, I’ll give you a call to hear how it all went and so you can share your feedback and stories!
Time to pack your bags and take off for your journey of a lifetime! I’ll be here to support you. I will be reaching out while you are on your adventure to ensure everything is running smoothly and to see if there is anything else I can do for you. Likewise, you can reach out if you need any assistance while you travel; you’ll receive information on who to contact for in-country support, too.
Too busy to book all your flights, hotels, tours, and transfers? Leave it all to me. I will book and manage all of your travel arrangements, including coordinating local guides, excursions, and tickets to museums and special events you won’t want to miss. Before you take flight, we make sure all the details are confirmed, understood and finalized. Welcome to immersive travel made easy!
Now comes the really fun part. After our call, I’ll begin researching your itinerary, working with my exclusive, vetted industry contacts to craft a tailored itinerary just for you. You’ll receive 1-2 options from me—which we can finesse together until it’s perfect.
Let’s chat! We’ll first connect on your complimentary consultation call, so I can learn more about you and the type of vacation or travel adventure you’re after. You may already know where you want to travel, or you may need some inspiration! I’ll also share more about the process, including my planning fee (which depends upon the length and complexity of your trip).

Her passion for planning what would be the trip of a lifetime for us was evident from the beginning, and her enthusiasm was contagious! She stayed in contact with us regularly and always made herself available to provide support as we navigated the challenge of rescheduling our trip due to COVID-19. Her positive energy and love for helping others discover her native country were delightful. We would highly recommend her to anyone!''
"Our experience with Soldi was a pleasure from start to finish. After an in depth first call to get a real understanding of the type of holiday we were after Soldi put together an itinerary of Costa Rica with destinations, transport, guides, activities and eco resorts that suited us perfectly. The whole trip was faultless and resulted in a stress free magical vacation we will never forget."

"Soldi has booked several trips for us and we are always so happy to work with her. She is very patient, knowledgeable, kind and easy to work with. Her passion for travel is infectious. Because of covid we had to pivot in our travels several times and Soldi took the time to provide the best advice for my family to make sure we had a good time on each trip. Booking travel can be overwhelming if you don't know where to look but Soldi makes it easy and stress-free. I would highly recommend Soldi for anyone who enjoys travel but needs some help either to get out of their comfort zone or to have an expert in their corner to think of every detail of the trip. She is the best!"
"Soldi Foster of Journey's by Soldi is a travel agent extraordinaire. After planning what was going to be a perfectly planned and executed trip to Spain for 15, she had to help us cancel it due to new Covid restrictions and fears. Then, in a matter of hours, Soldi had a new itinerary scheduled for our big group which included hotel, restaurant and transportation reservations during one of the busiest travel weeks of the year, Christmas break. Her back and forth communication and responsiveness was amazing. And it didn't end there; Soldi, also helped us navigate the insurance to get our claims filed. The support, understanding, networking and ability to do what she does is why we will definitely use Soldi for all of our travel needs in the future."
