I'm not one to make new year's resolutions but this year I did come up with a theme for 2018. Welcome to my "Year of Yes" for Curated Travel.
I said yes to a Princess cruise to the Eastern Caribbean with my husband and dear friends.
Yes to a family vacation in Maui. Yes to getaways to Walla Walla, Washington, Portland and Bend, Oregon.
Yes to a birthday weekend away in Napa Valley.
Yes to writing my first feature article in Upgraded Living Magazine.
Yes to Virtuoso Travel Week in Las Vegas for a week.
Yes to a hosted luxury travel event in Los Cabos to check out the latest in luxury hotels with my wonderful travel agency, CADENCE.
Yes to another hosted travel event at the Phoenician in Scottsdale.
Yes to a CADENCE event at Lowe's in Hollywood. Most definitely this travel schedule ought to keep me busy for the next 7 weeks!
The only event I had to say no to, due to a prior commitment, was a hosted Ferrari/Pavoratti Gala Event in Italy. That one hurt just a bit, I must admit. Jet lag would have been tough combined with all the other travel commitments this month but I do love how the Italians celebrate.
As I pack for my first Virtuoso Travel Week at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, I'm feeling a bit nervous. These events are jam-packed with luxury travel brand meetings, events, networking, cocktail parties, dinners and galas that sometimes last into the wee hours of the morning. This is a far cry from the rare travel I did in the field of education and I want to keep up the pace. The more I learn about the latest in the travel industry the better for my clients. So wish me luck!
If my luggage shows up this time, rather than the 6 day delay when I flew to Italy, I should be in good shape to enjoy this jam packed travel week in Vegas.
On another note: I'll be meeting with travel brands from all over the world. If you have questions about certain destinations, hotel brands, cruise lines or experiences let me know. I'm here to do the research for you!
