What’s the perfect itinerary for a girls’ night? We say it’s a bottle of wine, a few best friends and lively conversation. In 2018, Julissa and her friends added a special ingredient: planning an international adventure!
It started out as any normal get together. It wasn’t long before someone said the two magic words: Girls Trip. After various places were mentioned, the ladies all agreed on going to Ireland, a place none of them had visited before. The land that has captured and inspired so many hearts was just the thing to make their getaway an incredible journey. They wanted to explore everything from the bustling city life of Dublin to the rustic countryside of the Wild Atlantic Way. Ultimately, Julissa and her friends wanted to get the most out of their trip. That’s when she remembered something.
She and her husband had used Crystal Travel before for another wonderful adventure in the past.
After getting in touch with Kevin, Crystal Travel’s Head of Business Development, Julissa explained the type of trip the ladies had in mind.
Kevin knew just the person to make this trip unforgettable: Travel Expert Natasha. No stranger to the Emerald Isle, Natasha has traced her family ancestry back to Ireland and spent a lot of time on its west coast. No matter where she sends her clients, Natasha encourages them to experience an area’s culture and surroundings.
“I took my ideas and handed them off to Natasha,” Julissa said. “She really fine-tuned everything, which was amazing. Advice like that was exactly what I needed.”
“I love that Natasha had a young look and feel to her. Being able to relate to her was huge for me. Even just through emails, there was a youthful personality and a shared excitement,” Julissa said.
“It was perfect! I didn’t have to worry about printing documents, where to find places, who to talk to – everything was laid out for us,” Julissa said. “It was such a relief to have our travel packet with all the information and just go have fun.”
Julissa and her friends enjoyed making memories in Dublin at the Guinness factory. While there, they heard the story behind the iconic Irish drink and got to sample a pint.
