2021 Group Experience Destinations

2021 Group Experience Destinations

I don’t think people realize how much time I invest in deciding my group experience destinations. I don’t just pick the top trending location and take a bunch of people there(though I have done this before once and realized I didn’t like it). Rather, I select places that have captured my attention and heart since I was a child and remember the emotions those images in my head created and use that to fuel my creativity when I put together itineraries that cultivate an experience and opportunities of a lifetime.
I will be announcing one location per week here and the details to sign up will each have their own post starting around December 2019 and into January/February 2020.
Here they are, in no particular order . . .

All the reasons you don’t travel, solved.

Excuse #1 – I can’t afford it. Solutions – 1. Stop frivolous spending! Have you ever calculated how much you spend on coffee drinks, energy drinks and/or alcohol? Go ahead, add it up, do it for a whole year, I’ll wait . . . Shocking […]
