Testimonial Tuesday: Lindsey, Karen, Libby + Jennifer

Q: Why did you sign up for your trip? What were you looking to get out of it?

A: A friend of mine posted on facebook about her trip and it looked like fun. So I visited with the ladies in the family + decided we needed to do this.

Q: Did you have hesitations about taking a surprise trip? Were you nervous?

A: No. I was not nervous one bit.

Q: Where did you guess you were going to travel? Were you surprised by the destination?

A: We thought we were going to east coast. Yes, because we never thought of California!

Q: Upon discovery of your destination, what were some perceptions about your city prior to the trip?

A: We were excited to experience the downtown life, visit the beaches, and eat seafood!!  

Q: What made the trip feel unique and tailored to you?

A: We had massages scheduled for us since we were wanting a relaxing weekend. Suggestions were right up our alley. Fit us great!

Q: What did you like most about your travel accommodations?

A: Since we live in a remote area we said we would drive to another city for an airport. We left early in morning and had a nice layover for breakfast and arrived in San Diego early in the afternoon so we could start exploring.

Q: What was your favorite experience that we recommended for you?

A: Oyster bar + massages.

Q: If you could do the trip over again what would you do differently?

A: Nothing!

Q: What did you discover on your own (not on your itinerary) in your destination that you feel is shareworthy?

A: We loved hanging out downtown at little pubs/bars. We stick to the recommendations minus one restaurant

Q: What was your favorite part of your trip?

A: All of it. But the surprise of finding out tops it.

Q: How would you describe Pack Up + Go and your experience to Family + Friends?

A: A MUST-DO!!! I recommend you guys all the time! I can’t wait to do this again!

Q: What did you learn on your trip, or from your trip?

A: Culture.

Q: What would you say to someone who is hesitant to go on a surprise getaway?

A: Don’t be. They tell you how to pack with the hints. Try it. If you decide you don’t like the unknown at least you can say is you tried. This is great for those who always want to travel but don’t know where to go or what to see and do.

Want to get away with your friends to a new place full of culture + fun?!

San Diego is a coastal dream for surfers, beach bums, + sunbathers with more than 70 miles of glistening beaches. 

Here are some of the photogenic shots that Jasmine + Richard captured on their seaside adventure to this Southern Californian beach haven!
