What is Not Just a Getaway?
Not Just a Getaway is the result of two women recognizing the importance of taking time for themselves in order to reflect, refresh, and renew. For them, getting away was the perfect way to maintain balance and mental clarity which in turn benefited their families. Each getaway allowed them to create experiences filled with adventure, self-discovery and personal growth.
