It was a seriously incredible trip. One of the best ever for me and I think for many of the others in my crew. It was so well done across the board. The places we went, the house, the butlers, the timing of everything, the transportation, etc. I honestly believe it couldn't have gone better than it did. Epic is the only way I can think to explain it, but that doesn't even cover how great it was.
