Proud to Represent...
it's safe to say that all of us working in the travel
industry have something in common. We LOVE to travel. Am I
right or am I right? I mean come on, why else would we be
working in this crazy business???
One of the
great things about our jobs is that we often get the
opportunity to travel to far away and exotic places.
Places like the Taj Mahal, the Great Wall of China, Manchu
Picchu, the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Colosseum in Rome,
and the Great Pinto McBean.
You've never heard of Pinto McBean in Bow Island, Alberta?
Oh, you really must go!!!
Last week I
was participating in the Air Canada Vacations'
Caribbean Comes to Alberta road-show and on our
way from Medicine Hat to Lethbridge we couldn't pass-up
the opportunity, and had to pull over for this
once-in-a-lifetime photo-op. Pictured with me in front of
the famed Pinto McBean are Alison from Saint Lucia and
Roberto from Sirenis Hotels.
living the dream!!! As my friend Lenora said, I can now
cross that one off my bucket list. :)
By the way,
I want to say a big thank you to Jodine Clement
from Air Canada Vacations in Calgary. She put a lot of
time and effort into planning the road-show and she did a
fabulous job. Thank you Jodine!!!
In a couple
of weeks I'll be heading out on the road again for the
Westjet Vacations Mexico Expo (details
below). Maybe I will see you at one of the shows in
Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton or Winnipeg? It should be fun
so hopefully you can try to make it to one in the city
have a great month. If you need anything we're just a
phone call or email away. Happy Selling!!!
