for 4 days in Isle de Margarita will be the venue for the 3rd annual Lime Ladies retreat. Yup, our group of dysfunctional wimmen from 5 different countries will camp out for our retreat starting tomorrow and climaxing on Monday. Two of these wimmen have flown in from the U.S.
Our retreat started 3 yrs ago when one of the ladies in our group said that she had never visited Trinidad or the Caribbean and always wanted to go. So we said, why not plan a weekend trip. Just the women, no husbands, no kids...and so a trend was started. We went to Trinidad for 3 days and tore the place up. We named ourselves the Lime Ladies after the Trini term for hanging out Liming.
Last year, we went to Colonial Tovar, a pictursque German village in the mountains of Venezuela.
As many of the members of our group are expats, and a few of us are leaving this year our choices for a retreat next year are exocit and exciting. We have the option of South Africa, Sao Paulo, Barbados, or Cincinnati, OH. We keep the group to a minimun of 8 and entry into our circle is quite selective. You have to be dysfunctional like us to join.
So off we go tomorrow, we've opted for the 4hr drive to coastal town of Puerto La Cruz and then take the 1hr Ferry ride accross to Margarita, we are taking our cars, hence the ferry trip. So my fellow bloggers, my bags will be packed shortly, the music and swim suit and sunblock are ready and I'll be off. I'llm ake sure to take some pics to share
