It is one of the most romantic times of the year and we saw a true act of love from the December Trip of the Month winner, Robin Frydenlund. Robin was the lucky winner to the biggest trip of 2019, five days in Paris with flights and accommodations covered. However, Robin decided to gift it to her brother as a wedding present.
“Robin has always been looking out for me,” said Patrick Frydenlund. “She helped me plan the proposal and kept Ashlee from finding out the surprise.”
The couple was waiting to take a honeymoon trip due to a busy year and wedding expenses.
“We bought a house, Ashlee finished up her Master’s degree as a Speech Pathologist and after getting married we decided to build up our accounts before spending more for a honeymoon,” explained Patrick.
However, they were shocked when Robin turned their congratulations around and offered them the trip! Since you are able to transfer trips between immediate family, Magic Carpet Travel worked it all out for the newlyweds.
“I tried to turn it down and told her to take it since it’s a once-in-a-lifetime trip, but she insisted that we would have more fun,” Patrick smiled. “We couldn’t be more excited!”
They booked their trip within the month and have a five-day honeymoon in the City of Love set for April. With so much to see in Paris, they will have a full itinerary, but will make time for a day trip to Normandy and a relaxing spa excursion.
We are so excited for Patrick and Ashlee and are so impressed by Robin’s generosity! There are so many options for a trip winner.
