Too Good to Be True!

I was just asked to a fitness week in Portillo, in exchange for a one week stay for me and Mark. Because of Mark's crazy business travel, we even have enough miles to get there. August 25th to September 1st!!!!

LM, I'm so delighted for you two! What a wonderful opportunity for you.

Now, given your luggage conveyance, might there be a little extra room for me?

Excellent! You deserve all the good things life can give you!

What's up with the book? I pre-bought through Amazon, but just got notice it's not available. Snafu, or something else?

Congratulations Lisa! I'm sure you're working on getting us all some good deals to get us down there with you, right?

Well we're flush out of miles at this point, but sometimes there are reasonably good airfares to Santiago. Delta, LAN (an American Airlines partner), and American all fly there with only 1 or two connections from pretty much anywhere in the US.

Also, although Portillo's prices may seem a bit high at first, keep in mind that the price is all-inclusive of 7 days lodging, lift tickets, and meals, and the special fitness and entertainment offerings.

They have two lower-cost alternatives to the hotel. The Octagon Lodge holds 4 people so the per-person is less. And they have a ski-dorm facility, the Inca lodge, which is only $600 USD for the week, still including lifts, meals, and event access.

Good for you, Lisa! I hope Mark's shoulder is healed up in time to carry your bags.
