Planning Your Perfect Girlfriend Getaway
One of the fastest growing travel specialties is the “Girlfriend Getaway,” and it is easy to understand why. After all the stresses of everyday life, there is nothing quite as enjoyable and relaxing as getting away from reality with those true friends who allow – and even encourage – you to be yourself without fear of judgement. Here are a few suggestions for upscale Girlfriend Getaways that some of my other clients have enjoyed:
How about a little retail therapy?
Most women love to shop, so why not combine a week in Milan with great shopping, dining and entertainment options? Paris’ Champs-Élysées and London’s Oxford Street also come to mind, but there are many amazing options out there that are centrally located and served by convenient airports.
Why not check into a luxurious spa or rejuvenating yoga retreat for a wellness getaway?
A little pampering never hurt anyone, and you might even come home with some new healthy habits! For a truly decadent experience, check out the Schloss Elmau in the Bavarian Alps, or I can help you book a once-in-a-lifetime yoga retreat in the Tahitian islands.
A week spent wine tasting, or possibly signing up for a cooking vacation, can be fantastic options for Girlfriend Getaways.
Try something a little different, and take a wine tour through the beautiful Yarra Valley in Victoria, Australia. Or combine the two activities into a sumptuous vacation by traveling to Tuscany, Italy, where you can taste some of the world’s best wines, while enjoying culinary classes in the traditional Italian style. Because incredible wine, delicious food, and great company are ALWAYS a recipe for the best memories!
What about options for friends who want to tackle some serious adventures together?
Consider a skiing vacation in the Swiss Alps, or, if you’re feeling VERY intrepid, a trek through the Himalayas. If you’re looking for something a little more luxurious, consider a golf weekend at an amazing resort with tee times daily, or a scuba diving trip in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. All it takes is a shared interest and some planning!
All-Inclusive resorts and cruises are natural fits for this type of travel, where your biggest decision for the day might be whether to order champagne or a martini…or whether to sit by the pool or on the beach.
Who wouldn’t welcome some mental downtime, where you and your girlfriends can be fully pampered, while escaping from everyday commitments?
