READY FOR TRANSFORMATION?
You are successful but you are not where you want to be (either personally or professionally). You hear a little voice saying there is something you are missing but you don't have the clarity around what it is. You know all the answers are within you, but there is too much noise, you can't access to them.
It's time for you to step away from your daily life, learn how to use travel as an opportunity to reinvent yourself and create meaningful (and lasting) changes in your life, so you can finally drop all resistance and allow the inner change to occur.
READY FOR FREEDOM?
You are in an ideal moment of your life to travel and check off your bucket list, but you work too many hours. You have neither time or energy to proper plan your trips, to find the best quality and comfort options cost wise, or even the right travel companions. You'd love to always have your next trip booked to look forward to, with the peace of mind that you'll always feel safe and meet extraordinary people in your destinations.
It's time for you to stop procrastinating and to find the healthy balance between your professional and personal life, so you can enjoy the lifestyle of your dreams, and achieve the happiness and personal satisfaction you deserve.

Passionate about TRAVELING and PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
My name is Sonia Cruz Oró and TRAVEL is my passion.
However, it was only in my late 30's when I really made the decision to follow my dreams... and looking backward I can just say: "What a ride this journey has been!" And actually, it continues to be, because we are all a work in progress, aren't we?
My background is IT, I've been working in the corporate world for nearly 20 years -mostly in a managerial position. But much more than computers my real vocation has always been people. This is why -despite my full-time job- I managed to get my Psychology degree and my Master’s in Leadership & Management in my spare time.
And when somebody asked me how could I find the time, the discipline, the will power... Well, it's the same reason why I traveled to eleven countries in one year: because I love what I do!
As a travel coach, I feel fortunate to say that my job is the perfect combination of my two passions in life: Travel and Coaching. And from a personal perspective, it was amazing for me to discover how these two areas are so connected.
Travel has been a powerful catalyst for my personal growth and for becoming the woman I am today. And what I've realised during my own experiences and challenges is that what worked for me can actually work for so many others!
So, why not use this knowledge to help other people to enjoy the great impact travel can bring to their lives when it's done with meaning and purpose?
Because in the end, this is not about ourselves, it's about all the people we can serve in our journey.
When I say to people, I am a Travel Coach, most think on a Travel Agent. It is understandable, travel coaching is a relative new concept. However, these are two very different careers within the travel industry.
On one hand, you hire a travel agent when you want to delegate all the research/booking for your vacations. You decide on when and where you want to go, and then you rely on the agent expertise to provide you the best option available to them.
On the other hand, you hire a travel coach when you want to learn how to use the power of travel for your benefit, for the rest of your life. You are looking for guidance on HOW you can create the best trip for you according to your personality type, your values, your needs and wants. A travel coach can also help with the research, but most importantly they will work closely with you to identify the insights, resources and tools that will allow you to travel with intention from now on, so you can achieve the goals, experiences and transformation you are looking for.
Travel is an opportunity to step outside your comfort zone, grow, learn and connect, leading you toward profound experiences and lasting insights. Travel coaching empowers you to take control over your travel goals and to have the experiences you need in order to have the transformation you want.
Ultimately, you decide how deep you want to explore.
"I've achieved more life goals in these last 18 months since working with Sonia, than I have at any other time in my life. I've been traveling regularly and in that time I've done three trips that I would previously have considered the trip of a life-time. I never thought I could afford anything like that. And yet I did them one after the other, each one more amazing. But the trips were just the beginning. I became a different person, more calm, more conscious of my strengths and weaknesses, and I gained tools to help me face the different challenges that life brings."
Helder V. (Portugal)
"I totally upgraded the quality of my travel. In 3 years and a half, I have traveled 68 times! But the best thing for me is all the lovely people I met here including my love. Now we travel the world together."
Aisling B. (Ireland)
"It used to be I couldn't meet people, I didn't know how to initiate conversations. Now I travel and meeting people easily everywhere I go!
Benedict C. (Hungary)
"I was hardly traveling but dreaming of many beautiful places around the world. Now I am ticking them all off! Italy, South Africa, Turkey, Egypt... And one of the biggest blessings was to meet the love of my life on my trip to Berlin (Germany). Since then, we have already been in 20 holidays together! "
Noémie N. (France)
"I used to be a closed-minded person, I thought everything turned around me, the kind of personality that people usually avoid. Last year I was able to take my son to Disneyland (an experience neither of us will ever forget). On my travels I connected with people from all over the world, and my communication skills improved tremendously. I learned to talk to other people and understand them better. Now I know how to negotiate better deals at my job and be a better father to my son "
Aleksandar S. (Serbia)
"I am very happy to have found a way to travel the world! Before I had to choose, among my 20 days off a year, where to go (depending on my budget and the time I had). Now, I am able to take twice as many trips per year on the same travel budget, while making friends all over the world.."
Sofia El-Hatri (UK)
"I used to dream about travelling and being able to experience in person what I knew only by books. Imagining myself helping people, being an inspiration, making a difference while becoming my best version. Now I make it happen."
Thays Querencia (Spain)
"I travelled to places I've never imagined before. I take the same number of trips per year, but it's the quality that has really improved. Staying at the finest hotels and resorts have made it feel more of a true vacation. Have met friends from all over the world at each trip and the best thing is that I stay in contact with those friends still."
Bryan Castillo (USA)
"I always thought travel was expensive, until I realized that we really can afford to travel 5 stars, have great experiences, and great work-life balance. Now our trips are like honeymoons -only that we take several per year. The number of trips multiplied from 1-2 a year to 6-8 a year. We always have a great time. And they are stress-free holidays, knowing that we have the best value for money"
