***Please note that this is not a private tour just for us. We will be on the tour with a lot of other people from all over the world (which is pretty cool too). Also, on all our trips I ask that no matter what we do during the day (hanging out together or separately) that each night we all have dinner together. That way we can re group and discuss how our day went. After that we can either choose to do an after dinner activity (for some reason we always seem to end up in somebody's club lol) or call it an early night.

I'm super excited for this trip. I'm a big proponent of traveling the world and seeing exotic lands...and what's a better way to do it than with some awesome girlfriends? :) Hope you all can make it! Email me any questions you may have...

xoxo

    This sounds amazing and I hope you all have an amazing trip! Do you think you'll be setting up any local meet ups so everyone can meet each other before a trip? That was my biggest hesitation about joining. Maybe a wine tasting or something?
