Tomorrow afternoon, I embark on a 3-day, all-expense paid cruise to nowhere! On Tuesday, I was having the worst day. Everything was falling apart simultaneously, and I had all but renounced my PR career for a job in trash collection when… a sanity-saving email floated into my inbox from heaven.
Actually, the email was from a coworker... inviting me + 3 friends on a FREE 3-day, 2-night cruise… leaving this Friday! I had to respond immediately and I did, shaking with excitement and trying to IM, Email and text message the girls to see if they were available all at the same time.
You probably don’t know, because I can’t really blog about work, but my agency is the top travel PR firm in the world… so we have unbelievable clients that make this sort of perk possible. I can’t really talk about the cruise line or the circumstances around the trip… but let’s just say, it’s a huge, it’s awesome and we’re going to have the most fun, free, food-filled weekend ever.
Stay tuned for photos and stories!!
P.S. I am finalizing my entries revealing my 3-month long social experiment…so stay tuned. Ideally, I’d like to publish them next week… but given I’ll be headed to Florida on Thursday, it might have to wait until the following week. Stay tuned – I’m getting there!
