Q: Why did you sign up for your trip? What were you looking to get out of it?
A: While craving a much needed get-away, I read about Pack Up + Go on a travel blog and was instantly hooked on the idea of a ‘surprise’ destination trip. I was hoping for a fun, new location that I’d never been, and I wasn’t disappointed!
Q: Did you have hesitations about taking a surprise trip? Were you nervous?
A: My only worry was ending up somewhere that would be too similar to the trips we normally take. We were looking to explore somewhere with a different style, and Savannah was the perfect location to do so.
Q: Where did you guess you were going to travel? Were you surprised by the destination?
A: After getting our 'hints’, we were betting on Charleston, New Orleans, or Savannah. I was surprised overall by our destination, but after being there, I realized it was the perfect choice based on our initial survey answers.
Q: Upon discovery of your destination, what were some perceptions about your city prior to the trip?
A: We were definitely expecting some serious HEAT in Savannah in July, but were excited about lots of great restaurants and bars, and charming historic locations.
Q: What made the trip feel unique and tailored to you?
A: Our survey answers were definitely taken into account. We love good food, hole-in-the-wall bars, and adventuring in new cities. Walkable Savannah offered all of that and more.
Q: What did you like most about your travel accommodations?
A: The location of our hotel was right near the center of everything. It was great being able to walk everywhere and not deal with Uber or renting a car!
Q: What was your favorite experience that we recommended for you?
A: We had a lot of fun going on a local ghost pub crawl, and seeing the historic sites around the city.
Q: What did you discover on your own (not on your itinerary) in your destination that you feel is shareworthy?
A: We decided to venture a bit further to the Wormsloe Plantation. The oak trees dripping with Spanish moss along the mile-long driveway were beautiful (and totally Instagram worthy!)
Q: What was your favorite part of your trip?
A: Getting able to experience a new location without the hassle of making our own travel arrangements was amazing. The ease of the process allowed us to focus on relaxing and having fun!
Q: What did you learn on your trip, or from your trip?
A: We learned a lot on the trip about the history of Savannah…but I also learned the importance of taking some time off to relax, reset, and just have fun.
Q: How would you describe Pack Up + Go and your experience to your friends and family?
A: Amazing team and an awesome experience!
Q: What would you say to someone who is hesitant to go on a surprise getaway
A: Just trust in the process!! My boyfriend was hesitant and wanted to peak once we got our envelope, but ended up having a great time.
