What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in travelling to warm destinations throughout the cold wintery months and other bucket list destinations throughout the year. With these changing times due to COVID I am not posting a lot of vacations, however, hoping the travel industry will return soon. We are also a social group so meeting other like minded people will be fun and easy. We try to meet twice a month for brunch, lunch or dinner for meet and greet purposes. Summer is a great time for cottage and weekend getaways. Ontario is beautiful and has a lot to offer Fall is great for travel bargains and Winter is the best for warm getaways. I've been in the travel business for over 30 years but no longer sell. However, the knowledge I've gained is plentiful along with access to travel and last minute deal destinations. I look forward to meeting everyone and exploring together. Life is to short to do anything else!!

ST. ANNE'S SPA - ONE NIGHT GETAWAY!! ALL INCLUSIVE WITH SPA TREATMENT!!

WHO'S INTERESTED IN ST. ANNE'S SPA?? We are scheduling a one night getaway to the St. Anne's Spa in Grafton an hour and a half from Toronto. This fabulous spa is a true spa getaway and includes 3 meals, snacks and spa treatment. I'm checking into Monday - Tuesday as everything is booked for weekends in March including Sunday to Monday. If March is not available I'll try for early April. This is a great little getaway. The rates start around $350.00 per night for weekdays and of course higher on weekends. The cost includes everything above. If you have a flexible time schedule week days are less expensive than weekends and much more available. For now I need an idea who's seriously interested so that I can determine how much space is needed along with car pooling. Dianne
