The power of this wonderful networking site has been proven again.
Last night I caught up with awesome explorer girl Hayley who connected with me on the Explorer Girls Facebook Group. We had an amazing time eating delicious Cupcakes from Cupcake Central and chatting about our shared passion, Snowboarding.
I put a shout out on the group on Facebook for a girl who wanted to head up to Hotham some time in the season. I was looking into going up there by myself to visit friends and takibng the bus. However, the prices are astronomical and it could be quite lonesome. So I asked if any girls were interested in heading to Hotham at any time in the season and if anyone was willing to give me a lift. one or many would be great. Hayley got back to me within 10 minutes.
A quick back and forth on facebook followed by a direct message and then a text message or two and our first meet up was arranged. When we met last night, I felt like we had known each other years and we hit it off right away. We both love snowboarding, meeting new people and are passionate about travel.
Hayley and I are hitting up the slopes next weekend. We’ve also planned a number of other trips over the season so if you wanna tag along and you’re in Melbourne, give us a shout out.
Thanks again Explorer Girls!
