Colorado and April Update

Last month I took off to Colorado for a week with two good friends that I don’t get to see nearly often enough, and we had a great time.  This was my first trip to Colorado and I got my first real dose of elevation sickness.  Our trip got off to a great start with me passing out at the top of Pikes Peak.  Apparently ALL the people at the top saw me pass out because people kept coming up to me to see how I was feeling, but luckily I recovered quickly as soon as we began our descent.  Naturally we had to commemorate this memorable event with matching souvenir t-shirts!

After the excitement of our first day, we continued our whirlwind trip through Colorado.  We started in Denver and drove to Colorado Springs where we had our Pikes Peak adventure.  We also went to Garden of the Gods and the U.S. Olympic Training Center.  Then we moved on to Breckenridge and Dillon for a few nights.  Despite the fact that none of us skied, we had a great time eating and drinking our way through Breckenridge and riding the gondola.  We left Breckenridge and drove to Estes Park for a night where we explored Rocky Mountain National Park and saw lots of elk!  My friends were brave enough to try Rocky Mountain Oysters, but I wasn’t overwhelmed by the urge to taste this Colorado delicacy, so I stuck with fish and chips.  From Estes Park we went on to spend a few hours in Boulder and then back to Denver for our last night in Colorado.

We had a great trip and thanks to the many real estate guides I picked up along the way, we found the perfect dream property at the base of a mountain that we’re going to buy together so we can all move to Colorado someday.  I had always heard how great Colorado was, but had only ever seen the Denver airport on a few layovers, so it was great to spend a week traveling in this beautiful state.  Colorado – I will definitely be back, with a can of oxygen in hand!

Better late than never

I realize we’re a few months in, but 2016 has been off to a great start here at Globetrotter Travel!  January was a busy month for us as we exhibited in a large Bridal Show at the Lansing Center at the beginning of the month. We met with many brides who were eager to have some help with their honeymoon planning.  We distributed a LOT of brochures, but we still have a small tower of brochure boxes left in our office for the next show.

We’re continuing to work with many brides from this show on their honeymoon plans and have booked a few honeymoons to warm weather destinations like Cancun and Punta Cana.  We also had a luggage package giveaway for the first honeymoon booked with us following this show, and we’re excited to deliver it to the lucky bride.

After the busy start we had to the year, we took a week off at the end of January to cruise the Caribbean and it was a great trip.  We explored some islands we hadn’t been to before and when we returned home, I immediately recommended Aruba as a destination for a couple who was looking to go somewhere new in the Caribbean.

We returned home from our cruise to a lot of new trip requests and in addition to honeymoon planning, we’ve stayed busy planning birthday trips, anniversary trips, family spring break trips, cruises, and bachelorette party weekends.  I also had the opportunity to register for a great seminar at sea opportunity in April, so we’ll be heading back to the Caribbean in a few weeks for cruise training and exploring more new ports. Visiting these islands allows me to make better recommendations when it comes to planning trips for travelers who want to get away to somewhere warm, but aren’t sure where to go.

Stay tuned for more frequent updates throughout the year and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or trip requests!
