I am a Travel Creator.

My name is Chiara-Luisa, an Italian, Mauritian, South African and I am passionate about travel, food, people and photography as well as the unknown.

I am constantly in awe of our world and wander lusting is my favourite past time, which is exactly what has brought me here. My life has taken me on exciting journey’s to interesting and exotic places which is why I encourage you to travel, stretch your own boundaries and explore more of our incredible planet. Travelling, in my opinion puts you straight into the moment, exactly where we are meant to be.

As the daughter of an Airline CEO, I have been privileged enough to travel extensively. Additionally I have worked for a renowned Tour Operator Company taking my clients on Educational around the world. I am super-efficient and a procurement specialist, who will ensure that you get exactly what you are looking for and that your trip is streamlined from start to finish, be it leisure or corporate travel.

Travelling for me is the University of the World. I don’t think you could learn more about sights, smells, flavours, languages, people and ways of the world as you do when you travel. Ultimately I would love to specialise in food tours around the world, starting with Italy (my heritage).

I am a curious entrepreneur by nature, and I cannot wait to plan your journeys with the same enthusiasm as I have planned my own. I am here to assist you with your dream vacation that is within your budget.

If you want a once in a lifetime journey, you NEED to contact me to arrange your next adventure!

I'm convinced that I was born to travel... My biggest dream as a child was to go overseas where the grass looked so much greener!! Straight after matric I proudly bought a hard-earned flight ticket to the world of pretzels and beer and I became an Au-pair for a German family from where I had the privilege to visit Austria, Switzerland and France. After that first taste of life over the waters, there was just no turning back for this small-town-girl!!! I studied a BComm Tourism degree at Tuks and started my first travel job at Supersonic Travel on our campus. From there my life took a turn into the worlds of Insurance, Marriage, Children and Banking. The likes of Old Mutual and Investec taught me what it meant to break China for my clients and I did it with great passion and dedication. Being in the corporate world and becoming a mother of 3 busy children, taught me lessons that will go a very long way and I'm still learning with each passing day... As one of my very first colleagues noted recently, I've completed the circle that I've started as a student 21 years ago. May we walk hand-in-hand in creating life-long memories for you and your loved ones, memories that will last a lifetime...
