Today in my blog post I want to talk about connecting with the special people in your life and how important those experiences and memories are to us.
I had a great week this week! I re-found two special people in my life that due to geography and being neglectful, I had lost connection with. It’s only afterwards that you realise how much you have missed out. And as soon as you hear that person’s voice again, the connection is instant and the time lapse dissappears. And thanks to Facebook and technology, we are in touch again. What a special feeling.
Very often people drop in and out of our lives and sometimes we are left wondering why this person appeared and disappeared. Sometimes, it takes a special occasion to nurture those people that mean so much to you but you don’t see that often.
You cannot wonder, then, why we are so happy here in the festival marketing team to learn that more and more of our visitors use the Abbey Medieval Festival and the Kids’ Medieval Fun Day as their occasion to reconnect and spend time with the special people in their lives. Thank you to all of those fabulous ‘connectors’ who do a much better job than I do and proactively look after the special relationships in their lives. We are so honoured that you are choosing the Abbey Medieval Festival as your venue for reunion. What a compliment!
And because we know how difficult it is to organise friends and relatives who are interstate, we wanted to try and help out! Have you heard about our competition?
Just click here and complete your details and you are in the running for a great prize worth $3,000. The prize consists of flights for a family of four from either Sydney or Melbourne, a car to get around, a week’s accommodation in the luxurious Novotel Twin Waters in the Sunshine Coast, VIP tickets for the Abbey Medieval Festival and to top it off – three more fantastic Queensland experiences – free family passes for Australia Zoo, Aussie World and Bellingham Maze.
This is our way of helping all those connectors out there because we know it takes a lot of time and effort to make these occasions happen. So if you are in Queensland trying your best to get interstate family and friends together this July holidays, tell them about this competition!
Don’t miss out on those special memories and experiences.
Till next time, my friends,
