Good morning ladies and gentlemen and welcome to Jet2holidays! Today, Saturday 2nd April, we will be jetting off to Manchester for an event packed full of bloggers, destination showcases and retro deck chairs – we will shortly be taking you through the safety procedures (including why it’s advisable to take care whilst wearing high heels on inflatable pink flamingos) and telling you more about the fabulous holiday deals we have on offer…
Last weekend, I was invited to an event by the wonderful Jet2 & Jet2holidays to find out more about the company and what they do – I have flown with Jet2 on countless occasions and have always had an exceptionally good experience with them. I find the cabin crew friendly and accommodating, the booking system flawlessly easy and the customer service very helpful. The hashtag for the event, #Jet2Sunchester, made me smile instantly – we’re not known for our awesome weather here in Manchester, but we can also have a giggle at ourselves too. I was excited to see some of my favourite bloggers at the event, and got all togged up according to the ‘summer outfit’ dress code!
On board today we have refreshments including a glass of bubbly on arrival, plus cocktails courtesy of the BH Mallorca bar. You’re invited to relax at our massage and treatment area, organised by the luxurious Hotel Botanico – your trip with us will be anything but bumpy, so sit back and enjoy the ride. Our lovely crew will be around shortly to discuss your trip and our other holiday packages in more detail with you, so feel free to ask them any questions you may have!
As soon as I arrived at the event, I took my glass of bubbly and headed into the main event room. I fell in love with the beach setting that had been positioned in the middle of the room, and started to feel instantly summery! My first stop was at the glitter make up stand, and it really got me into the festival spirit – perfect considering my second stop was with the team at BH Mallorca who told me all about their summer gig line up and events happening across their resort. I then popped along to hear more about the exciting Sol Katmandu – I’m such a theme park fan that this looked instantly fabulous! More and more bloggers arrived, filling up the room with chatter about their own favourite holiday destinations and future plans.
If you look to your left as we travel along, you can see the miniature crazy golf area where you can try your luck at getting a hole in one (for the attention of passenger Chyaz Samuel, please remove your platform heels before attempting to hit a golf ball in any kind of straight line!). To your right we come along to the Hotel Botanico stand and beauty treatment area – prepare to relax and unwind…
I had the loveliest time chatting to the representative from Hotel Botanico – to say I’m a spa fan is like saying Justin Bieber has kind-0f made a comeback. The more I heard about the destination in Tenerife the more I fell head over heels with the idea of a relaxation holiday – we tend to opt for city breaks, but it’s been years since we jetted off somewhere to truly take it easy. The massage and nail stations were a wonderful touch to the event as a whole, and everyone left looking thoroughly pampered and chilled out!
I also love the Oriental twist to the Hotel Botanico resort – as we got engaged in Hong Kong, all-things-Oritental put a huge smile on my face!
The talks about Malta as a destination were also great to listen to, I have family friends with Maltese relations who spend a lot of time over there, and I’ve heard some wonderful things about the island. All in all, I came away from the event feeling incredible inspired to continue along the travel blogging element of my website and social media channels, and full of admiration at how many fantastic fellow bloggers we have here up north! At the end of the event we were also presented by a lovely goodie bag – did you spot the snap of the special Jet2holidays biscuit on my Instagram page?
Oh go on then, here it is!
A huge thank you to Jet2 for a lovely day out – now to go and finally munch on that biscuit! I’ll leave you with a snap of one of the famous pink inflatable flamingo chairs…I am totally determined to have one in our apartment one day!
Ladies and gents, we have now arrived at our final destination – on behalf of Jet2holidays we’d like to thank you for travelling with us and hope to see you on board a Jet2 flight again soon!
