My work has taken me to some really amazing places – all here in the U.S. (so far!) – and all very cool and unique in their own right. In fact, I was taken to some places that I probably wouldn’t have ever explored, had I not been “forced” to go for work. So for that, I’m thankful. But what’s really been cool about being able to travel so much is that I’ve learned that traveling by myself is actually a lot of fun. And rewarding at the same time!
Just before the holiday, I packed my bags and headed down south for a little Southern Hospitality courtesy of…Nashville! This was my third time exploring the tiny little Country-music filled town, but this time was a little different. It was the first time that I had really explored outside the downtown area, and let me tell you…I’m SO glad I did.
When I first heard about the Boston Park League, it was in December of last year. The 2016 season was over, and the 2017 season hadn’t yet begun. It was Chris Venuti, of Harry’s Breakfast and Lunch, who told me about the league over breakfast one morning.
If you’ve ever planned a birthday party, or any type of social event, you know how much work goes into it. A lot. Like, A LOT. So when I come across people that do it for a living, I’m in awe.
Earlier this week, I spent 48 hours in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Prior to this trip, I’d never been. Things I’ve heard over the years about Minneapolis:
- It’s really cold.
- It’s in the middle of nowhere.
- It’s the place that no one wants to go to, but doesn’t want to leave when they get there.
- It’s really, really cold.
