Our Adventure Began!
Nyssa and I have just returned from an amazing overseas adventure again. We took our opportunity to fly my Mother In law down from Mackay to look after the kids at our house and then we took off to commence our Adventure in the States then onto the tropical island of Puerto Rico! We had an absolute blast travelling Business class on QANTAS directly to LA. On arrival into LA we had arranged the hire of a Convertible Car which we then drove to Las Vegas.
The trip in the convertible took approx 5 hrs to Las Vegas and we stayed at the Wynn Hotels Encore Hotel. Magnificent is all I can say. We spent an amazing 4 nights seeing shows and checking out the sights. We had an amazing experience with a spectacular 3.5hr Helicopter ride into the Grand Canyon with a Champagne Lunch at the base of the Grand Canyon. This was a great start to out trip and we especially loved the Premium Factory Outlets and loved spending a day shopping for cloths of course. Next Stop Puerto Rico……
The weather was perfect and the resort we stayed at was what we had pictured with awesome views. We stayed at the El Conquistador in Fajardo in the Las Casitas section of the resort. Our room was a one bedroom with a living area and kitchen. It had a patio that overlooked the ocean from up high on the tropical ocean side cliff. The view was both inspiring and breath taking!
So while were were there, our days looked like this:
Saturday – We arrived at the San Juan airport and were greeted by our transportation to the resort by a woman holding a sign with our name on it. We identified our luggage and didn’t have to touch it from that point on. We had a Luxury SUV pick us up for the hour long ride to the El Conquistador resort in Fajardo. We ate lunch on a balcony that overlooked the ocean with other self-made millionaires and multiple 6-figure earners in my business opportunity. We hung out at the infinity pool most of that day, just soaking up the sun. That night we went kayaking through a jungle channel which contained Bio-luminescent micro plankton.(I’ll tell you more about that later! Awesome!) After kayaking we hung out with fellow friends overlooking the inspiring view from the balcony of our accommodation.
Sunday – We paid a visit to the Resorts Day Spa Facilities. There we soaked in the Hot Tub and Sauna while Nyssa took the opportunity also to pamper herself. The afternoon was followed by a Duo massage where both Nyssa and I were massaged at the same time in a private room by our own massuse. OMG how amazing this was, totally relaxing and inspiring. Later that night we had a private catered dinner in one of the top steak restaurants in the country called the StripHouse which overlooked the channel and cove we kayaked to on Saturday night. This dinner was followed by a small get-together for other leaders within my business called “The Repeaters party.”
Monday – We attended a Large Team event prior to the opening where we were able to catch up with and chat to people from all over the world. Monday night we attended a welcome reception to the event we were there to attend. We ate buffet style and were entertained by great local music and were accompanied by awesome company in the over 1,000 strong attendees.
Tuesday – Motivational Speaker Yossi Ghinsberg was our first speaker of the conference. If you have never heard Yossi speak, do it. He is amazing. Following Yossi we heard from Steve Donahue and his uncharted journey across the desert. That night was followed by a woderfull dinner with friends, then Later that night we watched the a NEW documentary that is soon to be released by our company POLARIS MEDIA GROUP featuring Michael Jr.
Wednesday – We heard from our final speaker, Neal Petersen, on Wednesday morning. He was an amzig energetic speaker. We spent our entire afternoon by the infinity pool sipping Pina Colada’s whilst relaxing. That night we attended a black tie gala to bring the conference to a close. The steak melted in your mouth..it was sensational. Nyssa and I spent much of the night socializing with others and having fun. Great stuff. We danced the night away to a band that was the best I have seen in a long time. After which we soaked it up in the hot tub by the infinity pool with amazing outrageous friends. What a great way to close out the event.
Thursday – Our car came to pick us up at 8:20 am, just as the Tropical showers came and went. Our Adventure here was coming to a close, till the next part. I tell you what…the best place to ride is in the back of a nice private car! Our trip to the airport was just as relaxing as our trip to the resort, before boarding the plan 1st class to Newark, New Jersy then on to LA.
So onto the next short adventure before heading home. That was our experience in Puerto Rico. It was amazing, life changing and inspiring and at this very moment, I am going through some withdrawals, wanting to be apart of that life everyday. So what a perfect trip and our adventure was not over just yet!
Friday – We had arrived and stayed the night in LA after a day of 1st Class service at the pointy end of the plane. Now we had a day to spend some time doing what we do best and love……..SHOP….so we arranged a private car to pick us up at 11:00am, and take us to RODEO Drive Beverley Hills. Made Famous in the movie Pretty Women. Our Adventure here was short lived after we found our Favourite store GUESS, then onto the local shopping centre. I tell you what…shopping with freedom and enjoyment is awesome! Our driver collected us and took us on a trip back to the hotel .
Well agreat adventure must come to a close as we boarded our QANTAS flight home bound for Brisbane and it was not long and we both were asleep in our flat beds in Business class for the trip home. Till next time …..we look forward to the next adventure in March 2010 to be held by POLARIS MEDIA GROUP in Macau, China.
