Are you the type who stays on your lounge chair or gets up to dance when you hear music at the pool?

On this #TravelThursday, I’d rather be dancing…

You may not know that I loved traveling to Club Med so much with my dad while growing up that I immediately went to work for them as a tennis pro after finishing my Masters Degree at UNC.

Not only did I get to use my French, I got to live in Mexico and Paradise Island over the course of a year and a half. Though a back injury caused me to stop working for the brand in 1999, everything came full circle in 2012: I had the pleasure of being invited to Sandpiper Bay (the only Club Med in the US) for a press trip.

The best thing about all-inclusive resorts is that you can do everything or do nothing (guess which option I typically choose?). So even as a guest, I jumped at the chance to do everything from the circus trapeze to dancing the “Crazy Signs” around the pool before lunch. (Think “YMCA” but more tropical).

While most of you are experiencing some pretty brutal weather right now, I hope you’ll choose to get up and dance wherever you are!

{And speaking of dancing, funny fact: I actually got this shirt at a free Luke Bryan concert before he was a big name in country music. The sponsor was giving out free shirts and printing names on the back for us. I thought it would be clever to get my Twitter name on the back (Instagram wasn’t around back then!), but obviously the staff didn’t quite understand how to properly use the “@“ handle yet).
