💕🙌🏼🦄 We only have two more days here at @clubmedtomamu before we say goodbye and head into the chaos! It’s going to be so strange to leave our Club Med cocoon – where we’ve been for 10 days as everything changed – and return to the real world. 😭We will be back again next year – we love it so much 💙❄️💙 Apres ski whoop! If you’re wondering how we afford to stay here in this amazing resort, here are my tips: I keep my eye out for the regular 30% off sale and I book then, but I only have to pay a small deposit (a few hundred dollars). Then I pay the balance off over time and by a month or so before our stay. We’ll be coming in March again next year so feel free to join us! I’ll let you know when the sale is on🌸💕🌸💕 📷 @tayler_timm

A post shared by EVIE & EMMIE 💕 (@mumpacktravel) on

Evie Farrell has spent the last week at Club Med Tomamu Hokkaido, Japan, with her daughter Emmie. Evie is a much-loved blogger-turned-author who had a tough start to the year and chose to travel to the resort regardless of the CV concerns (this was before the government warning not to travel unless critical and self-isolation procedures).

She has been having a FANTASTIC time at the resort and feels 100% safe, cared for, and confident that every precaution is being taken to minimize risk.

Through her posts and quintessential Aussie carefree-attitude, Evie provided much-needed comical relief to her travel-loving followers and Club Med is sure that she will play a key role in helping it push through this difficult time.
