It went amazing! Words cannot describe it. It would be a dream to just be able to extend to stay another week. It’s been absolutely amazing and I can only think of next year and saving as much money as I can so that maybe I can go on another trip. It’s been nothing short of perfect. It’s exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much!
