Let’s get real here… it didn’t take a lot of convincing for sign me up on a Girls Getaway! I mean think of all the crazy things you can do when you travel without your spouse or kids!
Just imagine sleeping in, taking your time getting ready, watching anything you want on TV, being able to get in the car without loading up everyone else around you, taking a nap, going for a walk to soak up the scenery, enjoying a stress-free dinner out, dancing the night away with your girlfriends, and doing it all over again the next day.
Going away on your own will teach your children (and spouse too!) that mothers have needs & 100% need a getaway!
Can you imagine your kids may actually miss you and begin to realize how good they have it when you’re home?
So, it’s no surprise that I jumped on board the first-ever Girls Getaway with Embrace the Journey Travel, as we head to Cancun, Mexico.
My experience with Embrace the Journey Travel
This has been the most seamless and easy and dare I say it…. Stress-FREE trip I’ve ever been on. My planners (Kristi & Andrea) handled it all, from booking to sending our final details and basically walking me through the airport when we arrived. (I am not kidding about this one!)
They planned the itinerary so it had time for us all to be together and do group activities, but we also had a ton of unstructured time built-in, plus they even included free massages and facials! I used this time mostly for napping by the pool.
A few of my favorite activities were the Silent Dance Party, the Catamaran, and the dinner outings with the whole group.
These ladies pampered and spoiled us and made me want to never travel without my travel agent in tow again.
The location: Live Aqua in Cancun, Mexico
Our girlfriend getaway was in sunny and beautiful Cancun, Mexico. This was actually my first time in Mexico and my second time flying internationally (the last time was over 15 years ago).
One of my favorite things about Live Aqua was the fact it was an all-inclusive resort. I didn’t have to worry about buying any other “things” or meals. In fact many times, I ordered multiple desserts, just because I could!
Simply bring some extra cash for tipping at the resort and your travel transfers and don’t worry about anything
If you are on the fence about joining a girlfriend getaway…. hop it NOW!
If you don’t want to take my word for it, do it for your health. It’s no surprise that taking time off from your day-to-day duties and getting away is good for your mental and physical health.
In fact, Inc.com offers four science-based reasons to book a girls’ getaway:
- Stress reduction
- Improved productivity
- Better sleep
- Prevention of heart disease
Thus proving that time off is important to your health in the long run.
So what are you waiting for?
