Marcella Raimondo and Srinika Narayan are two very busy women with demanding careers and a desperate need to take a vacation.
They needed a vacation in a bad way, a vacation where they completely unplugged and were able to relax.
«Both of us, we really needed to check out, completely checked out,» says Raimondo.
The problem, they were so busy that they didn't have time to barely think about their vacation, much less sit down at the computer and start doing the research to plan their escape from their daily lives.
«I suppose we would have been able to do this on our own, but it would have been really hard for me,» says Raimondo, pointing out how much work it would have been to plan the trip and «still not know what we were getting into.»
She says she's not alone. She knows many people who simply don't have the time to plan their vacation so they can take the time out to completely getaway and recharge, so they end up staying at home where work can find them or not going on vacation at all.
«Colleagues of mine, we are all so busy and just need to get away,» says Raimondo. «Sometimes the planning for the getaway is what creates the biggest barriers.»
So, the two women tapped Girls That Roam Travel's Heather Cassell to guide them their perfect vacation.
