AGENT SPOTLIGHT
Learning From Travel
BY VIRGINIA BROWN
Originally from Sao Paulo, Brazil, AAA Travel Advisor Siloe Soto moved to the United
States in 2000 and lived in New York City before moving to the Raleigh area. Today, she's
an agent in Raleigh's New Hope Road office.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME A TRAVEL ADVISOR?
My decision came from a desire and long lived passion of learning about world destinations
and different cultures combined with the opportunity to work with AAA Travel.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED WITH AAA?
I've been with the company for four years. Originally, I'm from Sao Paulo, Brazil. I moved
to New York City in 2000 where I lived until 2013. I made the decision to move to the
Raleigh to be close to family and begin a new adventure. The South has shown me that
there are very adaptive ways to live, different cultures, air, energy and a way of life. Watching
myself grow in the South has been rewarding and provided me with outlooks into travel
that I like to share with all my clients. There is a very large world out there and so many
things that are possible to see, share and experience. If I can assist in getting someone to that
destination, it is most rewarding.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?
Every day I learn something new. I learn all about countries and destinations. I learn
people's culture, their food and how they live their lives. Travel gives me the opportunity to
realize how blessed we are in everything that we have, and how not to take for granted and
be thankful. I not only learn things that I must know for the job, but most importantly, I
learn about life itself. And I make friends. People come in and sit down with me and talk
about where they want to go. And when they have the best time on their trips, I feel good
when they return and they say they will be back to me for their next trip. That's rewarding.
WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE?
Now you've got to my heart! In November 2019, I had a chance to go to Germany. When I
say I love that country - I love that country. I went with a group of other AAA Travel
Advisors, and we went to Berlin, Munich and Fussen. We got to see the Christmas markets.
You learn so much about the people, the culture, the history and the food. On the tours, the
guides were born there, so they tell you amazing stories. We can learn so much by traveling.
WHERE ARE YOUR CLIENTS HEADED IN 2021?
Because of the pandemic, most people are traveling within the U.S. They really want to go
to Europe, but we do have limitations and a lot of conditions to consider right now. For
summer, people are looking to national parks, which are a great experience for young people
and kids, as well as places like Las Vegas, the Florida beaches and the Caribbean - a warm
place to relax and enjoy a great time. People are ready to enjoy life again. I have people
booked for outside of the U.S. travel in 2021, toward the end of the year.
WHAT IS YOUR ADVICE FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO TRAVEL THIS YEAR?
Do it! We are all ready to move on with our lives. The pandemic is real, but we must move
on. Take precautions and make sure that everyone is happy, safe and well. The United States
is a great country with beautiful landscapes, national parks, beaches and beautiful cities.
We can do so much here in our own country.
