Lydia caught the travel bug early, missing the last two weeks of middle school to travel around London with her mom. Her travel experiences since then have been largely independent and well off the beaten path, sometimes traveling continuously for upwards of 3 years. Lydia has come to JET Travel to help and encourage others to enjoy traveling the near and far reaches of the globe as much as she does.

I love to travel and bring that passion to every client that I help. Through travel I want to create the possibility for memories that will last a lifetime. My love and passion for travel was instilled in me early in my life, thanks to my Grandmother Happy. She took me to Hawaii and I was hooked. From then on I jumped at every opportunity to explore the world through traveling. Now I continue to learn about new destinations and properties to better serve my clients.
