Hi, I’m Fran and I’d like to welcome you to ‘Come Fly With Me’.
Have you ever been at the end of your tether and just wished you could drop everything and take a vacation from life? Not just a camping trip or a one nighter at a budget hotel, but a real holiday? I know I have.
Holiday here I come!
It’s not as though I’d never had a break.
We would occasionally travel down south for a few days or a week and stay in a chalet or caravan park with the children, surrounded by other parents and their children, all vying for the same space. This was because we could only go during school holidays, when every other family was also doing the same. The kids would have a great time.
But to be honest, I was always a bit disappointed. A bit underwhelmed.
I think it might have been because although we were ‘on holiday’ I was still cooking, washing and cleaning up after everyone. A change of scenery yes, but a holiday? Definitely not!
I wanted to go on a ‘real’ holiday!
I Need A Vacation!
For years I dreamed of flying off to a tropical island. A beautiful resort with fresh linen on the beds, fluffy white towels and complimentary robe and slippers.
And food! Lots of amazing, tasty food that I didn’t have to cook, or clean up after.
I saved up for what seemed like forever before I could actually go ahead and look for my dream vacation. But then I was stumped. Where would we go? Where would we stay? Was it safe? Could we drink the water? Did we need travellers checks? Could we take cash?
And I did it! After years of planning and saving I finally managed to go on my first overseas holiday as an adult. I can understand how people can become overwhelmed by everything that planning a holiday entails and my first experience was not without its mishaps.
Come Fly With Me…
I’ve been on many vacations since and this is the culmination of all the things I wish I had known before I had done them, and hopefully share some of my memories, wisdom and mistakes with other travellers.
I may not have all the answers but if you have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out as best I can.
All the best,
Founder of Come Fly With Me
