Once again it is Thursday and here I am finally getting around to commenting on my weekend. There is no vlog from this, although that would have been interesting. Only a couple of photos and memories to share.
This past weekend, sort of my official last weekend of the summer as I have gone back to school and started this week, I went with a friend to be a camp counsellor at the camp she went to as a kid. The weekend was called Women’s weekend and it was for older women, most looked between 40 and 80, many of who had kids attending the camp in the summer or friends who did.
We started the trip off on Friday with walking around downtown and across 16th Street Mall, which wasn’t that amazing. Unless I missed something. It seemed to be mostly coffee shops and tourist stores. But! the weather was nice and we saw some cool tourist things.
I went to Denver for a long weekend over Halloween and since I do love food, I ate at a few different places. Here is a break down of where I ate, what I ate, and how I felt about it.
Thump Coffee – This was in walking distance of the airbnb we were staying at. The latte was nice, but the granola and yogurt with fruit preserves was amazing! I ate more then I could because it was so good. Cute little coffee shop with long tables for sharing. Free refills on the drip coffee. Continue Reading
1. If you need to wake up at 3am, don’t bother going to sleep the night before. Pull an all nighter of watching YouTube videos (you can find mine at youtube.com/hiimerika), or search centrepieces on Pinterest. (I had to do that for work once, and let me tell you that is some pretty shit to look at).
I followed my own rule once. In 2014, I was in Fargo, ND at a non-conference and found out that the closing party was the night before my 7am international flight home. I had to be at the airport around 5am. So I did what any smart sensible person would do, I stayed at the party until 4:45am, walked back to my hotel, changed my clothes, and went to the airport. Killing it! Continue Reading
There was this moment on take off when the plane turned over Toronto and the sun came in from the window on the other side of the plane and moved across my side of the plane and back out. And you could see all the boats in Lake Ontario as tiny white dots and I saw the CN Tower in the distance out my window and all the tall buildings that remind me of my home.
The island looked so small from above compared to how big it felt when I went there for camp as a child. The flight to Dublin bad. I wasn’t able to sleep for more then 30 minutes in total and spent most of the 6 hours watching movies, reading, or trying to seep. There was an empty seat in my row, but the guy beside me refused to move over to make the empty seat the middle.
Having a gluten sensitivity always makes me worry about my eating habits when I go on trips or visit new restaurants, and Las Vegas was both those things. I also panicked over my allergy to strawberries, but that only came up once.
