We love our girls trips! Several friends and I do all that we can to make time for girls trips. Skiing is lots of fun. Gambling trips are a must. We enjoy fishing in the summer and, when not skiing, like to find warmth in the winter.
This summer we are trying something new, an international trip. My friend turns 50 and wants to celebrate big, a week long birthday party. Ireland is the chosen destination and I’m all for it.
My friends are planners. They research and organize. They consult and put things on spreadsheets. They research some more and schedule conference calls. They text in the middle of the work day sending links to book the flight (they all work in an office and sometimes from home). In between my sessions at the countywide institute I was able to get my flight booked…phew…I won’t be flying alone.
We had our second conference call this morning. We will be in Ireland for one week and need everything planned. There is lots to see and we will make time for it all (ok a lot of it). After 45 minutes of conferencing/researching/consulting, the car is rented, the 3 day rail trip is booked, and the 3 hotels/vrbo are ready for us to check-in…well they will be ready in June.
Our next conference call is scheduled for next Sunday. I’m pretty sure we will be experts on Ireland before our feet even touch the soil.
