Short and sweet like only the richest of desserts should be, here’s your final course for this week’s wraps.

Globus Supertour dives into the Southern states’ music scene

Globus family of brands’ Supertour has continued its journey through the Southern states, with agents (featured image) making their next stop in Nashville, Tennessee.

The agents donned their cowboy hats and got ready for a music filled itinerary in the Country Music Capital. The group dined at Ole Red, a popular Honky Tonk inspired by country muso (and The Voice superstar) Blake Shelton’s hit of the same name; brushed up on their country music history with a tour of the Country Music Hall of Fame (and snapped a pic or two with Elvis’ Cadillac); explored Ryman Auditorium and the historic RCA Studio B; before experiencing a live taping of local radio show ‘Heroes Behind the Hits’ where they mingled with local Nashville musicians.

 

Helloworld Travel does the Balmoral Burn for charity

Team-shot

Brave Helloworld Travel employees recently took on the Balmoral Burn in Sydney, in support of the Humpty Dumpty Foundation.

As a proud corporate partner of the Humpty Dumpty Foundation, the Helloworld Travel team tested their abilities, taking on the hill of hurt that is Awaba Street, one of the steepest streets in Sydney on Sunday 26 May.

The annual run up the Awaba Street 420m course in Mosman was supported by various other events and activities across the weekend which raised over $2m for much needed lifesaving medical equipment for children’s wards in Australian hospitals, making a huge difference to thousands of sick and injured children.

Ten personal travel managers (PTMs) recently spent ten days exploring Nepal on an exclusive TravelManagers famil and discovered that this land-locked nation offers far more than just trekking and admiring those incredible mountains.
