Lorena Suarez Balkowski was born in Mexico and has been living in Canada for more than 20 years. She owns Wander Travel since 1999 as a General Manager/Sole proprietor. She graduated from University Hispano Mexicana with a bachelor in Tourism Business Administration in 1982. Her first experience in the travel industry was at the age of 14, while selling vacation travel options consisting of cruises and tours as well as airline booking. Her mother, an outside travel agent at that time, became a strong guidance, as she was selling group travel services, which lead Lorena to learn and became an excellent tour guide for Canada’s destinations, the country where Lorena is now living as a citizen. In 1982, Lorena and her family opened “Viajes Suave”, a retail travel agency located at the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Guadalajara City, the second largest city in Mexico. Proudly, this business became one of the top 30 travel agencies among 400 in that city, in a 10 year operation. Then, Lorena departed to Canada to start her own family and a new professional experience.
She successfully worked for Moreno Travel for about 5 years and her entrepreneurial spirit lead her to start Wander Travel Advisers, due to an accumulated experience and success in airline booking, accommodations, car rental, and group travel bookings. What Lorena does best is to share her vast experience in traveling and booking to develop new ideas and destinations to travel. Customers find at Wander Travel best prices, rates and fares on their travel plans, and a excellent travel assessment when planning future traveling. Wander Travel is always having presence in assorted media, such as newspapers, radio, TV, magazines, social media and community events, networking groups and proudly representing Mexican Tourism Board in community and international events (Carassauga Festival, Wine & Cheese Show)
