Have you ever had a moment when you just wanted to pack up and leave everything behind? Or have ever fantasized about grabbing your girlfriends, mother or sister for a great escape that doesn’t include any kiddy games? I’m sure you have, who hasn’t? But, if you’re like many of us you probably come up with a million and one reasons why it’s not a good time to plan a girl’s getaway instead of putting your attention on “heck yes, I’m going to do this!”
There really is nothing like a getaway with the girls; Traveling with kindred spirits, confidantes, sisters, mothers, besties or BFF brings a carefree spirit unlike any travel you will do with your life partner or family. The mood, the appreciation of beauty, the giggling… the no-boys-allowed quality time we spend with gal pals is special and heartwarming in a different way.
Since I have been organizing culinary trips to Italy over the past 10 years, I have been making it easy for women to live out dream vacations. Through my travel company Delectable Destinations we offer Tailored Tours that take care of 100% of the planning making this the quintessential girlfriend getaway. Over the years I have established longstanding relationships with local restaurateurs and chefs, vineyard owners, exclusive shops and hotels, private tour guides and local artisans. Each and everyone of them are gems, that allows me to truly uncover the essence of Italy and Paris. How wonderful it is to share all of this during our culinary trips, whether it is to Tuscany, Amalfi Coast, Puglia, Spain or India.
All the worries and obligations of being at home or the office disappear as the plane ascends into the skies toward the perfect combination of history and culture, food and shopping adventure and relaxation.
The only obligation you have is to free your mind and open yourself to the magic that unfolds with Delectable Destinations; trips designed for small groups of four to seven people to maintain a personal and intimate atmosphere.
Safe and secure, everything we do, including the accommodations is professionally planned and organized to minimize stress and maximize fun. Every detail from the time of arrival to departure and everything in between is handled so all you really have to do is relax your shoulders and create lasting memories.
We even have some groups of women who make Delectable Destinations their annual girl’s getaway… why change a good thing?
Female-only trips are a great option for a sense of camaraderie and female-bonding that always comes with the trips. Woman come away with an open mind, wanting new experiences and to meet new people; and many making life-long friendships. How wonderful is that?!
