Sacrifice Rest for some of the Best
By Sarah Holmes-Siedle
So it’s October already… don’t anyone panic! This year has been a busy one, with lots more to come, namely WTM in a couple of weeks. But despite the tired feet from all the meetings and crossed-eyes courtesy of many a spreadsheet, I can’t help but think of the highlights so far. All the new faces and industry friends, a hot summer full of sunshine and travel to some amazing places.
It got me thinking that sometimes waking up with bags under your eyes but a big smile on your face is all worth it and I’ve been lucky enough to experience some amazing things that cost me a wink of sleep or two:
- Sunrise Tour in Monument Valley (Utah)
An alarm set for 4.30am but a view and setting that I will never forget!
2. A skiing holiday… the whole thing (Meribel, France)
Early mornings and late nights filled with awesome views and parties. What wouldn’t make you smile? Stopping for a mid-mountain hot chocolate overlooking the peaks to a cosy group chalet night in.
3. Food, drink and friends
With good company and a gorgeous setting I can spend hours indulging, but my favourite place to do so has to be the Old Port in Skiathos Town. Amazing atmosphere and delicious Greek food!
