Welcome to the Sonar Travel Blog!

My name is Sonia and I am the founder and owner of Sonar Travel, as well your resident blogger!

I will be blogging all about travel tips, cool destinations, fun events and more! But first, let me tell you a little bit about myself and how Sonar Travel came to be.

Just like many of you, I love to travel! I'm also a little OCD about it. Before I visit a destination, I prep for weeks, sometimes months! I read articles, scour the travel sites, design maps and create color coded itineraries. Call me a control freak, but I hate the thought of missing out on something because I didn't take the time to plan ahead – which has happened before and it’s a terrible feeling!

Some destinations allow you to fly by the seat of your pants, like a beach holiday. But others take serious planning if you want to see it all, like Paris or New York.

Knowing full well how tedious this task can be, my friends and family started asking me for help with their vacation planning. This went on for years until one fateful day when a sweet couple from Missouri changed everything.

I was having lunch at America’s oldest restaurant, The Union Oyster House in Boston, when I overheard the couple chatting about their weekend. They sounded completely lost, so I quickly intervened! I whipped out a napkin and pen and planned their entire weekend for them! They were so grateful! They went on their merry way, but not before the husband said to me “This is fantastic! You should do this for a living!”

That night, Sonar Travel was born.

If you really feel like it, you can learn more about Sonar’s services on the website, but here on our blog, it’s all about sharing ideas and tips. So let the fun begin!

I would love to hear your thoughts! Please leave a comment!
