What are the escape weekends like?

These weekends are a designed for you to fit in a much needed short break, as we all know how hard it can be to get away with work and family commitments. They are small, women only groups to allow for a more intimate experience and to allow for spontaneity and connection. It is an opportunity to try new experiences in a fun and safe environment. You’ll get to meet new people and enjoy this little part of paradise I call home. These are very flexible and relaxed weekends where all you need to worry about is getting your lovely self there, I’ll take care of the rest. Relax and put your feet up!

My prayers are with Bali.
This never ending pandemic is hitting hard in Indonesia and Bali is in the throes of a lockdown.

The Balinese people are resilient, but without clear support, people are suffering.

If you love Bali and can’t wait to get back to enjoy the holidays and retreats you enjoy there, don’t forget them too in their time of need.

Over the course of the pandemic WSWT has donated to trusted people on the ground in Bali to support local villages and people.

If you want to help out in some small way and have retreated in Bali with me before, here is who I have donated to:

Also sending thoughts to our Pacific cousins in Fiji and to one of my most favourite countries, Cuba 🇨🇺

𝗦𝗼𝗺𝗲𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘄𝗲 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝘀𝘁𝗿𝘂𝗴𝗴𝗹𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗳𝗶𝗻𝗱, 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲𝘀.

Luckily you will find a balance of rest, relaxation and activities on one of my Escape Weekend Retreats.
Spots are filling up fast for the next available date in October. Registration and booking info can be found in bio or please reach out if you have any questions.

Beautiful words from some of my retreat guests.
Remembering my “WHY” and going back to read these reviews makes my heart sing.

Giving women a safe and fun space to be themselves, relax and reconnect: whether that’s with nature, their creative side or themselves is so important to me.

We sometimes get lost in the hustle n bustle of life and it’s very easy to lose ourselves. And feel guilty to take time for just for you.

My message today……Don’t feel guilty!

“When you’re stressed out, exhausted or struggling through a crisis of some sort, it doesn’t always help to be ripped from your sleep before dawn, persuaded to push your body to the max, and deprived of your favourite foods and drinks. When I’m feeling fragile, I like to know wine and chocolate are there for me if I need them.

It is with sweet relief then that I arrive at a remote Waihī log cabin for Wanderlust Solo Women Tours’ weekend retreat to find my fellow guests drinking wine and beer in the spa. A steaming pot of mulled wine is on the stove. The ingredients for the pizzas we will make for dinner are laid out on the kitchen bench. The chocolate brownies and truffles we’ll treat ourselves to afterwards are in the fridge. Suddenly the typically busy week that was seems like it happened in a parallel dimension.”
