I'm back from a two week trip to Europe and wanted to share some photos!
The first week was in Lake Como where my hubby and I had organized a week retreat for his top sales people at his company. Since I organize my Creative Retreats there he had asked me to organize his yearly Summit Club this year also in Lake Como! Of course I had NO problem say yes to that job! Another week in Italy... SURE honey! :)
This was the first time for most of the people to even travel to Europe, so we were excited to share our favorite place with them!
I had to travel a day ahead of them to get everything ready, but when they arrived in Bellagio, it was pretty cool to see their reaction...
Here are some photos from the week:
Of course my favorite place to relax the day away...
Off to Al Veluu for dinner!
Couldn't sleep and woke up to the sun rise.
Dinner at Salice Blu under the grapevines.
I celebrated my birthday that week! Got some beautiful flowers and cards from friends in Italy and from Lance's company. The one in the middle was HUGE... and from one of VICTORIA's friends in Italy... :)
We took them on seaplane rides. Here you can see our hotel they flew over and I was out on the pergola taking photos of them!
Went to Mennagio for dinner one night and met our friends Jenny and Lorenzo there.
Explored a little bit more this time walking around the little back streets...
Took them to Villa Balbianello.
Lance and I waiting for Luca to come pick us up from the Villa.
Scott and Veronica kayaking on the lake past our hotel.
The beautiful and peaceful La Tirlindona restaurant.
Walking on the waterfront in Varenna for dinner on night.
One of my favorite views of the lake.
The last night we all dressed up for dinner at Mistral, the hotels gourmet restaurant.
Enjoying dinner and a beautiful view.
Had Corale Bilacus come and sing for them! It was so great to hear them again!
Rebecca's friends Ricardo and Michele who came and sang for us, even though Michele had just gotten in an accident two days before and was in a lot of pain! These are such great guys.
Needless to say, you can see from the photos that we had an AMAZING week! It was so much fun to bring these friends here! Lance has such great people working for him and they all enjoyed being here for the week! So glad we could do this for them.
I'll share more photos of the next leg of our Europe trip soon... We headed off to Paris for a week to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary!
And if YOU want to join me next year for my Annual Creative Retreat in italy... Just send me an email to be put on the list! I am SOLD OUT for May 17-24th, but if you want to be put on the wait list for May 24-31st, I may be doing a 2nd week that is more casual but still GREAT fun!!
Hugs to all,
