WHY WORK WITH BELLA
I’m Una, a professional Retreat Leader, Event Planner and Traveler. I’ve been to over 30 countries and love helping others experience the world in new and exciting ways. I’m here to help you plan and lead your own transformational retreats that will change your business and the lives of your participants.
In my early 20’s I was an elementary art school teacher. I loved working with kids but the idea of sitting at a desk working 9-5 for the next 20 years, awaiting retirement, crushed me. I was tired, overworked, stressed, and hated the idea that I would do the same thing over and over again every day, every year until I was old enough to retire.
I started dreaming about foreign lands. I wanted to live an exciting life, not spend over an hour in the car everyday driving to suburbia and back.
I wanted to know the world. I wanted to understand what the colors of India looked like, what the food in Italy tasted like, what the spice markets in Morocco smelled like.
I decided to risk everything, take a sabbatical and ended up traveling to 22 countries in 2 years…
by myself….with just a backpack.
I learned about different countries, the people, their food, their cultures.
I discovered a welcoming, exciting world, despite the fears on the nightly news or that of my family. I discovered that traveling was an education in and of itself… and the world became my classroom.
