Hi, I’m Sue Ball!

Founder and lead travel designer at Sphera Travel, a boutique travel design company that crafts luxurious small-group vacations for empty nesters. With over 30 years in the industry, my journey into travel design took a personal turn in 2020 when my husband and I, Empty Nesters ourselves, longed for connection and a renewed sense of purpose—that year marked the inception of Sphera Travel, a venture born out of our desire to help others Discover the World Together, infusing their passions into enriching travel experiences and forging meaningful connections with friends, family, and like-minded adventurers.

Sphera Travel is more than a travel agency; it reflects my love for life’s simple pleasures and a commitment to curating unforgettable journeys for fellow Empty Nesters.
