Some may turn up their noses at the thought of a bunch of women getting together…let alone getting together for a long period of time: 8 days, 8 nights…all under the same roof! But when good friends select good friends and bring them all together, how does one go wrong?
I’ve been talking about my trip to Jamaica all seven days since it ended and I have missed everything about it. Yes, all six of us have very different personalities but everyone brought something to the group. Most of all, we laughed every single day, on many occasions, at something! We left the house together, and returned together. While out we ate together, we drank together, we socialized together. After a long day (and night) out and about we respected each other’s space and fell asleep one by one. Morning came and we did it all again.
There was not one altercation or disagreement among us for the whole trip – and I don’t think any of us ever sensed that there might be unreleased tension brewing either. Everyone was just so easy going and inclusive – a vacation with no concrete agenda. But we all left feeling excited, fulfilled, relaxed, and ready to plan our next girls’ trip! To think – most of us knew nobody else in the group. What a great time!
I have so much to say about this but as these posts are meant to be short for the purpose of inspiring others, I stop here. I’ll be doing a follow up video on the benefits of a girls’ trip – but for now I ask, what do you think goes wrong with people who try to do these trips and have them result in a complete flop – never to consider again? And – have you ever done a girls’ trip? If so, how was it?
