How our story began.

At age 52, our founder, Debbie Hudzik downsized her life and set out for the unknown. She traveled the world—alone—for a year straight on a quest of exploration. “Sure I was terrified, but, at that point, staying put, staying numb, would have been fatal. I put on my ‘I’m not scared of you’ hat and literally fell off a train in Italy,” shared Debbie.

A personal journey became a passion.

This turning point in Debbie’s life was the first step on a path of self-discovery. Along the way, she came to realize that she could help others in their pursuit of traveling with purpose. That’s when she started hosting informal, guided tours of the places she had lived and loved. Working with the contacts she had established in several countries, Debbie was excited to share insider travel knowledge with anyone who asked. Word started to spread, and that led to the launch of the Lotus Travel Company.

A perfect blend of experience

Having lived in New Jersey, Boston, California, Italy, Australia & Bali, Debbie is now based in Palm Beach, Florida. She credits her years of studying yoga and meditation in Bali, and her mastery of detail from a career in accounting, for her evolution as a travel planner who listens and delivers unique experiences for her clients.

Making every moment count.

We’re all on a journey, sometimes through muddy waters, like the lotus flower, our company namesake. We are fortunate when we learn to live life fully and appreciate every moment…

…Like the instant that you saw the sparkle in your daughter’s eyes as you experienced the awe of the Taj Mahal, together.

…Or how perfectly delicious that ice cold margarita tasted while you watched the sunset from a dive bar in the Caribbean.

….Or your inspiration to learn more about cooking because you were moved to tears by that pasta dish in Italy.

These are the experiences that shape a lifetime.

“Just wow! My group just left a spa that Debbie arranged for us. We knew it was going to be special, but what a surprise to walk into a room to see a bath tub filled with hundreds of rose petals, incense, candles and soothing music that transported us to a whole new experience of bliss and relaxation. Thank you Lotus Travel Company. Can’t wait to plan with you again.” –Eileen

What an amazing experience! Debbie is a wealth of knowledge and even more than that she is a wealth of love and deep desire to share! Travel is her passion. She showed us all the best that Bali had to offer and she even had alternate options for when people felt like going their own way! .Debbie is just an exceptional person and there’s really no one else to plan your travel with!” –Melissa

“Debbie and the team at Lotus made hosting a Bahamian retreat the adventure of a lifetime. She went to great lengths to ensure that the retreat guests had an amazing time with incredible benefits. On top of that, she facilitated a beautiful opportunity for us to give back by connecting us with the World Central Kitchen. We spent a heart opening afternoon surrounded by wonderful people from all over the world donating their services to make the world a better place. Debbie creates more than just vacations. She creates travel opportunities with heart and soul.” Jillian

“All things culinary are a big part of why we travel, so when Debbie told us she’s a foodie too, we knew we were in for many treats. Our favorite day was when a private chef taught us how to make an authentic Mexican fiesta. Homemade salsa, guacamole, ceviche, tacos and margaritas will forever be our go-to menu for parties at home. PS-she even sent us to a certain marketplace with tips on what to look for when buying a Mexican blanket we wanted for a tablecloth. Five star service all the way” Joyce

“We had no idea how important plants and herbs are to the Balinese culture until we went on a private tour in the countryside from Debbie’s recommendation. We learned so much that day by touching and even smelling all kinds of leafs and flowers. Such a great learning experience! Lotus Travel is much more than a typical travel planner, they are memory makers! –Wanda

“Lotus Travel arranged a wonderful group retreat to Bali. It was my first time going to Bali (and first time meeting my traveling companions) and it all went smoothly. A big thanks to Lotus for organizing such a wonderful trip! Debbie included lots of small details that helped make it feel so personalized.” –Crystal

What a pleasure this trip was! So many extras, goodie bags with our own sarong, a cultural dinner in a local home, dancers performing just for us and excursions to the prettiest places on the island! Thank you Debbie for thinking of everything and more!!! –Wendy

Debbie’s knowledge and patience were a godsend when we began planning after the pandemic. She brought a special calmness to the planning process we are most grateful. –Tara
