Back from Adventures

My girlfriend Amy came back from her 2 month adventure in South America today.  I love my life, but I have to admit I'm rather jealous is her ability to take off for 2 months on some crazy adventure.  She posted FB pictures along the way so I feel I have a bit of insight into her trip.  But hearing her talk about it today made it all real for me - she really was on this adventure and not just in Vernon for a few months.  Her favourite moments were paragliding, hiking the Inca Trail and seeing the Bolivian desert & salt flats (she stayed in a hostel made completely of salt blocks - even the tables the chairs).  

On the other side it was an adventure tour and I'm a girl who likes a shower now and again (even if I have to clear out the toddler toys first).  The tour stayed in hostels, and home stays and camped along the Inca Trail.  So very few of our usual amenities.  When asked what she missed most it was regular hot showers,  vegetarian food options, tap water and sane drivers. 

I'm happy she is home. Can't wait for the long picture slide show to come - really truly because the FB pictures from her phone were so fantastic I can't wait to see what her camera captured.

    My google alerts picked this up. Love when that happens.

    Yes, I am a real stickler for customer service because in my experience people like to buy from people, not from faceless corporations.

    When is the last time someone thanked you for your business (and meant it)? It is so easy to do yet businesses fail at this all the time. Don't they know the customer has so many choices as to where they could spend their hard earned money?

    We certainly know and we appreciate and value our customers. A happy customer is also our best form of advertising and "word of mom" is very powerful either for or againist your company, product or service.

    Thanks again for rambling about Raspberry Kids Tracey! We really appreciate it.
