Long ago my friend Caitlin had an idea that our group of friends should make it a point to take weekend trips to a new city on a regular basis. For the core group – myself, Lisa, Bryce and Caitlin – our trips have become a tradition. They were also the catalyst for this here travel blog. Our trips not only give us the opportunity to catch up and see each other, they allow us to travel – which is important for a group of hard-working, young professionals who have all been bitten by the travel bug.
Girls weekend getaways are far from a novel idea, but at the end of the day, you have to be disciplined to keep them up on a regular basis, and for so many years. Of course, it is easy to get caught up in our busy lives and push it off, but at some point we all reach a breaking point. Everyone needs to stop the train and get away – even if it’s just for the weekend.
For some inspiration, here is our growing log…
