Meet Kiron Dhaliwal
My life has been quite the journey. From early beginnings in India to my formative years in California, from personal trauma to incredible growth, I’ve gone from naïve schoolgirl to a corporate marketing career in Silicon Valley. I’m a wife, a mother and an entrepreneur and through all the ups and downs, travel has given me wings. Sometimes it was an escape from the craziness of my life and other times it provided the break I needed to turn inward and reflect on who I was and where I had been.
Now that my kids are older and I have more time to catch my breath and redefine my new reality, I find that travel allows me to see things through a unique lens, to engage with people who have a different perspective and discover more about myself through the process. I have learned the importance of self-care and that the more I give to myself, the more I can give to those who are counting on me.
It’s this love of learning and this insatiable curiosity to see the world that led me to create Concierge Vacations Inc. in 2014. I continue to work on myself from the inside out, which is why Wellness Travel has become such a natural extension of where I am in my life today and why I took on a Board of Directors position with the Wellness Tourism Association. I’ve also realized the beauty of the sisterhood and finding your tribe with whom to share experiences and new adventures. My Soul Sister Sojourns does just that-allowing like-minded women to come together and see the world while cultivating new friendships and creating lasting bonds. Likewise, I believe we need to celebrate and honor every milestone and nothing gives me greater joy than helping clients mark special moments through travel, whether it's a birthday, graduation, anniversary, honeymoon, or family reunion.
Through this journey, I feel a need to reconnect with my roots, exploring India through the perspective of a local and yet someone who has newly discovered the richness of the culture and the people. Similarly, countries like Japan, Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Maldives and so many others in the region intrigue me and draw me into the rich heritage, the amazing cuisine and the undeniable spirituality which exists within their borders. Of course, I’m not limited to countries in Asia when it comes to customized itineraries, this is merely an area with which I have a personal connection. I’m equally comfortable planning great escapes to Spain, Morocco, Italy or wherever your heart takes you.
I hope you will allow me to share my passion, my curiosity, and my journey with you as I create uniquely customized itineraries for you and those that matter most in your life. I also hope you’ll join me on an occasional adventure as we explore this incredible world in which we live. I look forward to learning more about you, what’s important in your world and how together we can collaborate to create unforgettable memories that you’ll look back upon with fondness many years from now.
Life is a precious journey-enjoy every moment and TRAVEL WELL!
