It was not all work and no play for this group of Canyon Lakers on their recent work conference travel.

Patti Hosking, Donna Hankins, Jan Petersen and Michele Sapp, who all work for Travel Blog Exchange (TBEX) planning conferences all over the world, recently traveled to Jerusalem, Israel, for their 2017 International conference.

Donna’s husband Dave and daughter Taylor, as well as Patti’s friends Sue Trudel of Washington and Joan Kane of Canyon Lake, were able to join the group on their trip of a lifetime.

During their off time, the group visited the Old City, Mahane Yehuda Market, Mount Masada, Dead Sea and the Sea of Galilee.

In the last nine months, work conference travel has also taken the TBEX group to Sweden and the Philippines.

This year, their travels include trips to Alabama and Ireland. “Some pretty great work perks,” said Michele.
