About Julie Harris


“I work with life long learners who are struggling with fresh ideas or the right connections and I make their travel dreams come true!”


Background:  “Solis” is a nod to my Honduran heritage on my mother’s side.  I began traveling at a very early age since my father served as a doctor in the US Army.  I am fluent in 3 languages:  Spanish, French, and English.  I decided to become a travel advisor 8 years ago because I had traveled extensively in my lifetime and had a solid business background working in both small businesses and large corporations.  Solis Escapes, LLC is located in Davidson, NC, a small college town 25 miles north of Charlotte, NC. 

Specialties: Over the years I have focused on cultural and culinary travel, even escorting groups on chef-led trips.

What I love to plan: I’m an active traveler and enjoy soft-adventure vacations. I get excited about people looking to get out and physically embrace the world.

Who is your Ideal Client:  My ideal client enjoys nice accommodations and good service.  They love to learn, they are eager to experience new things, and they are not afraid of other cultures.  They also respect my work and time.  

Favorite destinations: Ecuador and the Galápagos – Quito for gaucho culture in the countryside and the scenic volcano, and the Galápagos, of course, for nature. And I’ll never grow  tired of Bali for its people, the cuisine, and the spirituality – this island packs it in.

Most memorable travel experience: I was whale-watching in Washington’s San Juan Islands when an orca pod came past. The grandfather leapt into the air and twirled, prompting the others to follow suit. It reminded me that some of the world’s best adventures are right in our backyard.

Best food city: Every year, my son (who is a foodie) and I visit Chicago to eat.

Where next: Japan, New Zealand, Sri Lanka.
