Rave: Traveling for less? Yes please!

Love to travel? Who doesn’t! Now, thanks to TeamBuy.ca, you can get ridiculously awesome offers on travel packages through their newest site TeamBuy Travel.

Take a minute to browse and purchase vacation-related offers at up to 75 per cent off. The getaway packages offered are really special. Travel has never been easier (or less expensive). Score. This is the first Canadian site of its kind.


Yep…it’s time to book some time off work and explore the world! Here is a little taste of some of the travel offers that will be available:

Seven night ‘romance package’ for two people at Recreo in Costa Rica including a five-star villa, two massages, a sunset boat tour, a volcano day trip, airport transfers and a private chef.

Gorgeous Costa Rica, with a lovely view.

One night at the Napa River Inn in California for two people including a spa credit, breakfast, chocolate strawberries, and bike rentals.
Cali isn’t all Hollywood and celebrities.

The three-bedroom ‘Hangover II Suite’ at the Tower Club in Thailand where the popular movie Hangover II was filmed. Complimentary aromatherapy massages, Hangovertinis and daily breakfast will be included.
 

Thailand for less? Bit of a no-brainer.

Meet Our Team: Natalie

Natalie is our newest addition on the fourth floor, and we couldn’t be happier to have found her. She graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 2007, with an honours degree in Media, Information & Technoculture, a minor in Comparative Literature and a Certificate in Writing.

She got her first kick at PR when she landed an internship with the Canadian Opera Company. She worked at Alliance Films for nearly three years, and from there, landed a contract doing unit publicity with Battle of the Blades, where she got to hang with Ekaterina Gordeeva, making her childhood dreams come true. A serious pedigree to have on our team – welcome, Natalie!

How long have you been part of the team? 
About two months.


What is your guilty pleasure?
Sleeping in. I don’t do this very often, but I relish the days when I can lay in bed (guilt free) well into the afternoon.

What do you love most about living in Toronto? 
Biking! I love living in a city with such a thriving bike culture. I’m way too much of a wimp to bike in the winter, but as soon as the city thaws, Rupert (my trusty steed) and I are inseparable. Toronto becomes a lot smaller and easier to discover when you can map out your own route. 

Best gift you’ve ever received? 
Last year for my birthday, my boyfriend gave me a custom-made Lara Vincent headpiece. Made of black & cream suede flowers, it is absolutely stunning. It’s the first thing I’d grab from my apartment in a fire (other than my boyfriend).

Best part about being a publicist?
No two days are ever the same.

To note: one of Nat’s favourite things to do is to have friends over to try out new recipes, ingredients and cuisines.

She points out “I’ll be testing out his pork bun recipe soon, if anyone wants to come over!”
