TBEX Opening Party – An Affair to Remember

When we got the news that the TBEX Opening Party would be a Beach Party, we were all super excited. The party was to be held at the beautiful Santa Cristina Beach and we had 3 different transportation options as our arrival to the party:

  • Scenic longer boat ride along the coastline

  • Direct boat ride to the beach (15 min)

  • Arrival by bus for those arriving later

Of course I picked the earliest 6:30pm departure by boat that opted for a longer scenic coastal route to the party.
