Over the last two years, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to partner with Starwood Hotels and Resorts to help inspire travelers to take the plunge to book that trip together at a great resort. Nothing makes me happier than traveling with my family. So when I learned that the theme of Starwood’s Cyber Monday sale was “The Happiest Monday Ever,” including up to 40% off rates at Starwood Resorts across North America and Latin America, bookable from November 25 through Dec 6, 2013 for travel in 2014, I couldn’t have been more thrilled. Over the past week, a team of fabulous travel bloggers that I respect and admire have shared their happy places on vacation in destinations across North America, including the Caribbean, Mexico, California and Hawaii and doing what they love on vacation, such as skiing, golfing, or just warming up in the desert. Today at 10:00 a.m. PST/1:00 p.m. EST, I will be leading a chat on Twitter with @Starwoodbuzz about finding happiness in travel. You can follow along by searching and following the hashtag #HappiestMonday. I will be joined by other great travel friends and bloggers to follow including @CarolACain, @JohnnyJet, @VagaBond3Live, @TonyaStaab @MotherofallTrip @LaJollaMom.
Chat live with us at #HappiestMonday today, and head on over to the Starwood Travel Exclusives on Facebook, where TODAY ONLY, you can shake the snow globe and potentially win instantly a 3-5 night stay at a Starwood Resort, or be entered to win a grand prize of 225,000 SPG points. See Starwood Travel Exclusives for official rules.
