Beautiful Business Break BALI

FEB 20 – 27, 2019

Re-Energize Your Working Life…Connect, Renew, Revive

I believe that as we get older we don’t just want things…we want experiences. With more women working from home it can become isolated. We need those real-life connections and supporters. We have big visions and ideas to share but we need to surround ourselves with those who “get it” and those who can cheer us on to achieve more for our lives.

Come to Bali for a week and you will:

  • connect with other women in a spirit of sisterhood;
  • have a lot of fun, laughter and renew your zest for your work and life;
  • learn more about yourself, find more of your purpose, create more for your business;
  • enjoy truly bespoke experiences that will help you unwind, improve your happiness.

We’re going to be a small group having fun. I’ve planned it all and all you need to do is to say “I’m in.” I promise you a week of your life that you will never forget.

WHAT THEY SAY

 

“There are many highlights. However, if I can only choose one, it would be the company of the lovely women on the tour (including yourself Carmen) who all shared the same passion for travelling on an adventure.”

 *

Carmen made me feel at ease from the very start and she was helpful in every way. Any questions I had were answered very promptly and with a lot of knowledge. The inclusions which were offered on this tour made the decision very easy.

 *

It was a great opportunity to spend some quality time with other like-minded ladies who enjoy travel and meeting new friends. It was so easy being “myself” and being accepted from the start. I had to pinch myself “several times” and kept telling myself it was great to be alive and to have this fabulous opportunity to be able to do one of Carmen’s tours.

*

Carmen puts her heart and soul into creating these tours, making it a very memorable experience for me which I will always treasure and never forget.

*

This is no cookie-cutter style of trip. This is a trip all about bringing women together in a spirit of sisterhood and collaboration.

  • You are not going to stand in long queues and waste your precious holiday time. We are going use every moment of your time in Bali to do unique and interesting things that big tour groups don’t do.
  • You will have free time to do things that you want to do. There is no pressure…if you don’t want to do something one day then simply opt out.

I have been dreaming for years about creating a trip to Bali for like-minded women to travel together and to be inspired by the design, creativity, craftsmanship, colour and vibrancy of Bali.

I believed that with so many women now working in their own businesses or isololated at home that there were not many opportunities for them to connect and network in a holiday setting. So I wanted to be the one to do it and the Beautiful Business Break Bali was born.

Why I Run These Tours

WHY TRAVEL WITH CARMEN?

 

  • CREATIVE SOUL WITH A LOVE FOR TRAVEL     

After visiting Bali I just knew that so many women would love to do the same as me and experience the country from a design and lifestyle perspective and I wanted to bring women who wanted that together.

  • I WANT US ALL TO DO SOMETHING WE’RE PASSIONATE ABOUT

We work hard and life is busy. I want to create something super-special so we can just live life to the full for nine blissful days. It’s about finding yourself, igniting your passion and renewing your zest for life.

  • LOVE OF TRAVEL, ARTISTRY, BEAUTY & FOOD

These are my passions and they fuel me and most probably you too. I wanted to share all of these things with a group of women who will appreciate and connect with them like I do.

  • FUN AND FRIENDLY WOMEN WHO WANT TO HAVE FUN

Tours that are serious are not my cup of tea. I embrace life in a fun and friendly manner and this will be no different in Bali. We’ll squeal with delight when we find that perfect piece for your home or a stunning bag that you fall in love with. Most of all we will support and embrace the sisterhood that we create because I am passionate about bringing amazing women together who rejoice in the beauty of life.

  • SHARE WHAT I KNOW AFTER YEARS IN THE INDUSTRY

Each day I want to share a little of what I have learned about creating a home and life we love. I want to help you to be more expressive with the goals you have for your life, to practice finding simple moments of joy in your home and work towards doing things in your life that you truly love.

Your Questions Answered

  • DO I NEED TO DRESS SUPER FANCY?

No. This is a very casual holiday so you will need smart casual day wear, some walking gear and a couple of nice outfits for dinner. High heels are not necessary. Please travel light as you because there are many shopping opportunities to buy lovely things.

  • ARE FLIGHTS INCLUDED?

No. You will need to book your own flights because everyone is welcome to come along no matter where they live and whatever carrier you prefer to use. Maybe you have frequent flyer points that you would like to use?  We are here to help you and with my own dedicated travel agent by my side, we can help with all your flight and travel planning. Just ask me.

  • DO I NEED MY OWN TRAVEL INSURANCE?

Yes. You must have your own travel insurance to come on the tour and will need to provide copies of the insurance to me prior to departure. Without travel insurance, you cannot join the tour.

  • CAN I TRAVEL PRIOR TO OR AFTER THE TOUR?

Yes. You can definitely take advantage of being in Bali and head to any number of amazing places. We can help you with that. So many choices…

  • DO I HAVE TO BE FIT AND HEALTHY?
Yes. You must be fit and healthy as the tours require a lot of walking during the day. If you suffer from any major illness or health issues that you cannot manage yourself with ease, unfortunately, this tour cannot provide the level of care you may need.
  • WHY AREN’T LUNCHES AND SOME DINNERS INCLUDED?

I want to keep the trip flexible and on some days we will choose to go and do our own thing which gives you the chance to eat when and where you like. If we do eat together for lunches and dinner, the women in the past tours have set up a kitty to make payment at restaurants easy.

  • WHAT IS THE STORY WITH ALCOHOL?

Just contribute to the cost of alcohol if drinking with your meal. If you don’t drink alcohol then that is okay but please be aware that it will be a part of many of the lunch and dinner experiences and if you find it uncomfortable, this may not be the tour for you. Wine is very expensive in Bali but cocktails and beer are well priced. You can bring a couple of bottles of wine duty-free

  • IS THE ITINERARY LIKELY TO CHANGE?

There may be a few little tweaks to the plan, but ultimately it will say very similar. Plans change depending on weather, restaurant availability and group decisions made on the day. I like to have a solid plan, but I am also open and flexible to changes, which is the way I like it and why I like to travel with a small group.

  • WHAT IF I CHOOSE NOT TO DO AN ACTIVITY?

Please notify me prior to the tour if possible if there is something that you choose not to do. If you decide on the tour not to do an activity then that is perfectly fine however the tour will proceed with the planned itinerary without you. We can certainly assist you with alternative ideas.

  • WHO WILL I SHARE WITH?

Please nominate when you register as to whether you want single or shared accommodation. If you are travelling with a friend and have nominated to share, then I will ensure that you are together. All accommodation is simple Balinese style and each room has a simple bathroom. All rooms have a beautiful outlook to either the pool or rice paddies.
