USANA Fortune 25: A Tour of Paris

Written by on September 18, 2012 in Associates, Incentive Trips with 3 Comments

Today was the official first day of the USANA Fortune 25 trip!

The top 25 Associates/Distributors and their guests came in from all over and met up at Le Grand Hotel in Paris, greeted by upper management and welcomed with open arms. What do I mean when I say “all over”? Hong Kong, Washington, DC, Chicago, Toronto, New York, Los Angeles, and Mexico, just to name a few. And jet lag? What jet lag?

After a buffet which included some French staples like foie gras (“fatty liver”), a selection of delicious cheeses, and more desserts than I care to admit I ate, three groups toured three different aspects of Paris.

A Segway tour took yours truly and many others all over Paris, past beautiful museums, the Eiffel Tower, and numerous parks and gardens (see video below). Another group learned how to make perfume and visited a flower market, and the third group visited and toured the Opera House and its passages, just a block or so from the hotel.

A Segway tour was a Day 1 activity option for members of the USANA Fortune 25.

After some time to freshen up, two tour buses took us all to the famous French restaurant Chez Francis, where we wined and dined with a spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower.

Before the night was over, we were lucky enough to catch the tower lit up with 3,000 lights, sparkling brilliantly and illuminating the beautiful city for five minutes. This show goes on every night in Paris, but for us, it was a wonderful treat.

My one thought for the day was this: when you think of luxury, what do you think of? Most of the time it’s the nicest hotel, the nicest and fanciest places to eat, the most expensive jewelry or trips.

But what I’ve realized being on this trip is, luxury is also not having to sweat the details. Everything is so well planned and taken care of that one need not worry about how to get somewhere or when they’re going to get back, what something costs or getting reservations, researching the best places to dine or what to see.

Everything is done. All the Fortune 25 members have to do now is enjoy. And that is true luxury.

  1. Bonjour! I hope you all take the time to walk the rest of Paris. It is a beautiful city and one of the few in the world that you can truly explore on foot. Walking through Le Marais or around Notre Dame at night are some of my fondest memories. Enjoy the City of Lights and take it slow. The Louvre, The Musee de Picasso. Rodin. La Rue Faubourg de St Honoree…so much to see. Make the most of it!
