I tell women, this is your time, you can be as active as you want; or you can stay in bed, read and eat chocolate – just be ready when we check-out
Just wanted to share a little update from our The Third Annual Women’s Getaway Weekend, with Kathy Ekdahl, BA, ACE, AFAA. This year we went to the Viking Hotel in Newport, RI, a warm and inviting hotel, and walking distance to the many attractions. It was a great group, I enjoyed seeing old friends again and meeting new ones.
Kathy offered a daily yoga class, to get everyone going, and was there to answer any personal questions about health and exercise. Besides being a certified yoga instructor, Kathy is a certified personal trainer and fitness instructor – and fun to travel with!

We had a Welcome Reception the first night, and then on to dinner at the One Bellevue Restaurant, located in our hotel. The popular choices for dinner seemed to be the Filet Mignon or the Shelled Lobster; as for dessert, the tiramisu was good, but the winner was the Ultimate Chocolate Layer Cake: Chocolate Mousse in between layers of chocolate decadence and chocolate cake. The chocolate cake, and maybe a little of the wine, brought the group together!
There was shopping, walks on Newport’s famous Cliff Walk -passing in front of the beautiful mansions, and spa treatments. The Spa Terre, the signature spa of Noble House Hotels and Resorts, is located right at the Viking Hotel. They offer treatments from Java and Bali to Thailand, many of group signed up for treatments, and then went back for more!
Saturday night was a free night for dinner, this gave the women, who were traveling with old friends or family, time to be alone and get caught up. On nights like this, I organize an Optional Dinner, for those who want to stay with the group, so no one has to eat alone…unless they want to.

I love doing Women Only Trips, and being able to get to know so many interesting women. On my trips I have had business owners, writers, police women and stay at home moms. A wide age range, with multi generational families. And about 50% are married women. If you are married with a family, when you travel you are still the mom. On my trips I’m the mom, I take care of the arrangements and details.
New Women Only Trips: Will be announced soon, the final arrangements are being made now. Look for trips to New York City, Utah, Las Vegas, Ireland and more.
Hope you can join one of my trips in the future. Imagine the possibilities….
Note: Please send me any suggestions for trips- day trips, weekends or longer.
