The Joy of Anticipation or Planning Your Annual Holiday Being in charge of a business often means you tend to neglect your own holiday needs. Over the years, the most memorable breaks have been the ones we planned and looked forward to. A decision was made, months out, choosing a time slot in what for us was a quiet time of the year. Itineraries were developed, money set aside, flights booked and accommodation chosen. Then, we sat back and looked forward to the time we packed our bags and were on our way. From then on it didn’t matter what happened, how busy or tired we became, what problems arose, we were going to have a break and the feeling of happiness in the decision and certainty was there buoying us up, no matter what happened in the meantime.
One of the things George and Aldy have always done at Secrets on the Lake Treehouses is to ask for our guests’ feedback, good or bad, to show us what we are doing right, and what we could tweak to make it better. We also ask them to write in our guest books, put a review on Trip Advisor and upload their photos to our Facebook page to share their stories.
