Surprise Trip – Where Am I Going? Weigh In!

A few years ago I read an article in Real Simple magazine about this group of girlfriends who made a pact to go on one annual trip, which sounds pretty normal and fun, right? But, this gal-pal getaway had a few important and unique twists that caught my eye, leading my group of girlfriends and I to follow suit!

Here are the rules from the article:
1. One or two of the girls planned the entire trip completely solo.
2. Everyone on the trip contributed the same amount of money and gave the money to the planner/s. This meant that regardless of where each girl lived, she paid the same dollar-amount, making it financially fair and square.  The chances of the entire group attending became exponentially higher, and girls that lived farther away didn’t have to spend more, which, YES, always happens and isn’t so fabulous.
3. THE ENTIRE TRIP WAS  A COMPLETE AND TOTAL SURPRISE. And when. I say that the article called it a surprise trip, I actually mean it. From start to finish- location, flights, activities, food…everything was planned by the planners and was all unknown.

FAST-FORWARD to now…My girlfriends and I did this for the first time last year and it was incredible. Somehow, one of my miraculously gifted and secretive pals pulled the trip off all on her own, and it was utterly awesome. We went to a luxury dude ranch on the California coast. We went horseback, wine tasting, hiking, ate way too much food and had a generally ridiculous time. CLICK HERE to see photos and a video I made.

Next week, we embark p. our second surprise weekend. I have no clue where I’m going. All I know is that I have to show up at the airport and print my boarding pass and then I’ll know!

Here are the hints I received. Any guesses, because I have no clue where to go with these hints…HELP!
