I’m going to Mexico for the weekend

single-image

Yes, you read that right, I’m going to Mexico for the weekend!

I know, it sounds crazy doesn’t it. In fact, I think this may be the craziest trip I’ve ever taken.

On Friday afternoon (tomorrow) I’ll be jumping on a private jet direct to Cancun. I’m sorry, can I say that again. A PRIVATE JET! Thanks to the time difference I’ll arrive in Cancun early afternoon just in time for a huge beach party followed by another huge party on the Saturday. I’ll then fly home on Sunday just in time for work on Monday morning.

I think I’m going to need a few strong coffees to get through that day!

For those of you that don’t know, I work for Flight Centre, one of the world’s largest travel agency groups.  Each year we have a ‘Global Gathering’ which brings together the top achievers from all over the world across all 30 brands. The destination for Global Gathering is different every year and this year it’s Cancun in Mexico!

Last year the global gathering was held in Singapore. Fat Boy Slim was the headline DJ followed by Scissor Sisters. There are also key speakers at the conference which have included Michael J Fox and Richard Branson! We don’t know who they will be this year as it’s all a surprise when we get there but check out this video for a taste of how amazing it will be!

    Your job sounds absolutely perfect for me- definitely an inspiration for me to keep following my dreams! I just got back from Cancun a few weeks ago and had the most fabulous time. I’m glad that you get a great weekend getaway, be sure you grab a few (hundred?) coffees to handle work on Monday morning!
