WELCOME TO THE GLOW CAMP!
We cannot wait to meet you!
FLIGHTS: Crete has two different airports. Please make sure that you book your tickets to Heraklion, as the other one will be hours away from the Villa. Once you have booked your flights, please email us your itinerary / arrival time to firstname.lastname@example.org
INSURANCE: It is recommended that you have an international health insurance just in case. I also recommend that you make sure you have a travel insurance in case something unforeseen comes up *touch wood*.
PASSPORT / VISA: You need a valid passport to enter Greece. Depending on your nationality, you may need a visa.IMPORTANT: It is your own responsibility to be able to legally enter Greece.
WHERE TO STAY: If you decide to arrive earlier, look for places to stay in the area where the villa is or close to the airport.
DAY 1 MEETING POINT: Pickup is around 3pm from the airport. We can potentially pick you up somewhere in between the airport and the villa, if you’re staying somewhere on the way.
MY CONTACT: Should anything urgent happen prior to our retreat or during your trip to Greece, please reach out via email email@example.com.
OUR VILLA: We're staying at a private villa at Bali Beach outside of Heraklion in Crete.
WHAT TO BRING: Make sure you bring your swim suit, sunscreen, mosquito repellent, your journal. If you have a floatie, feel free to bring it along as well! My floaties would love some company!
The climate is still pretty warm during the day and still a little chilly in the evening. I recommend you bring a light jacket and a sweater for the evenings.
Should you use any medication, I recommend you bring it with you, as well as any travel medication just in case may be helpful. We will not be able to provide any medication.
Depending on where you're from, you may need a travel adapter to charge your devices, such as phone and computer.
ALLERGIES / FOOD PREFERENCES: If you have any food intolerances or allergies, please email us.
BEFORE YOU LEAVE:
Have address & phone number of the place you’re staying the first night saved somewhere, just in case!
I have an email folder called „travels“, where I save photo copies of my passport and credit cards as well as emergency phone numbers for all bank cards, and travel and flight information.
I also have this information stored somewhere on my phone or printed on paper, in case I can’t access the internet or my email when I need it. There’s a great app called TripIt where you can save all your travel bookings as well.
MY GLOW TRAVEL TIPS:
Drink a lot of water during your flights. You can ask the crew for a slice of lemon in your water, this helps hydrate your body and balances any physical stress.
Bring your travel pillow. It will make your flight and rest so much more enjoyable!
Bring a cleanser and moisturizer. The air in the plane is so dry and your skin will not like it too much. Remove your makeup before you go to sleep and apply moisturizer several times during your flight to keep your skin hydrated.
Bring a sleep mask and flight socks. These two little gadgets will make your flight much more enjoyable.
Download a few audio books on Audible or iBooks, download some music from Apple Music or Spotify and bring some good headphones with you. Or listen to The Glow Life Podcast on iTunes :)
Your lavender oil will save you from any stressful moments or people and will keep you relaxed during turbulences.
