In Italia Andiamo!
We had been so busy with the other trips we had actually not spent a lot of time cultivating the Italy trip. I knew Teresa had put together a great itinerary and the price seemed right. Tuesday morning we realized there were amazing women ready to GO! Teresa and I talked it over and decided we could reinvest any profit from this trip back into the project and so . . I'm going too! That way, we can start working to create a real sense of "we-ness" on these trips. We now realize that's pretty critical.
So - three "big" trips are happening in some form this year: Boston, Peru, and Italy! Maybe not as big as we hoped in terms of size, but they are a huge sign of progress! We sincerely thank EVERY woman that has helped us get to this point and we want to assure you we are just getting started!
With each of the trips we have tried to lift this spring, we have fine-tuned our processes and systems and now we can reflect on them and refine them. It is clear we need to grow this network and we need to get many more people behind a trip before we drive it forward. We need be much clearer about how "Crunch Week" works. And we need to think about how we scale up those processes. But it's been a great spring and we can't wait to send some of our "pioneering" Travel Sisters off on some amazing adventures!!
