I often tell people who ask me about my favorite hotels that it all depends on who I am traveling with and where I am going. The hotel that you choose when traveling, in my opinion, can make or break your trip. For example, if you were planning a romantic weekend away with your sweetheart then two nights at the Nickelodeon Suites Hotel in Orlando would not be the ideal spot. On the contrary, you might choose something such as the Santorini Princess Luxury Spa Hotel in Greece.
And there is something truly great about traveling with friends. A vacay away with your besties is often the ultimate way to catch up on life, and even remind yourself who you are. Over the years, I try to make an effort to get away with my girlfriends for some QFT (quality friend time). Just last week, I got to spend some time with my best friend from college. She and her family live outside Atlanta. Even though we are both now married women with multiple children, when we are together I feel not a minute removed from our days at UGA. Spending time on the slopes of Keystone Resort in Colorado was something we haven’t experienced together and made a fun adventure for our collective whole family.
In fact, I wish that I could take a few of my close friends on an amazing trip to Hong Kong, Dubai, the Philippines, or St. Lucia. For each locale, I might pick a few different friends who would be up for that trip’s adventures. Just thinking about it gets my trip planning juices going!
How about you? Would you like an amazing adventure with your buds? Well, here’s your chance!
