Hi, my name is Anthony Lombardo. I am of Italian descent, born in Switzerland. I came to the USA when I was 4 years old. I grew up in the great borough of Brooklyn, NY and now live in New Jersey.
Throughout my life, I have always been interested in history. I often find myself imagining living in the Roman period, in Europe during the renaissance, even during the American Revolution period. I can go on but those are my top, if I had to pick.
I think, well I know the reason that one of the reasons I became home based travel agent was because I could finally go to these different parts of the world as well as helping my family and friends do the same. The other reason and probably why this was such an easy fit for me was because I was and still am the person who gets everything together for a vacation. That means researching the destination, the resort, collecting the money, all the stuff that a travel agent does.
I’ve been part of the travel industry for about 16 years. I remember when I was younger, I would go into the brick and mortar travel agencies in my neighborhood and look at the brochures and say wow! I’d see pictures of the Great Wall of China, the Roman Colosseum, Big Ben in London, the temples of Egypt and Mexico and many more. I never envisioned myself as owing a brick and mortar travel agency, so I never did, until…… the internet came along.
