A couple weeks ago I was talking to my friend Michele about how much I wanted to do a “staycation”. You know, where you pretend you’re on a mini vacation by renting a hotel room and hitting the town like a tourist in your own city. Seriously, how fun!?
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!
This past weekend, I continued my nationwide travel tour (or what feels like it anyway!), and headed to Charlotte, North Carolina to visit one of my besties and her husband. Lucky for me, these two love beer just as much as I do, so I got to taste a bit of North Carolina, one handcrafted, custom-brewed beer at a time. And, I’ve got to say…Charlotte has some good beers!
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.
The weather in Boston has been all over the place lately. I blogged a couple months ago about how excited I was that spring was almost here, and then just days later we got hit with freezing temps once again (spoke too soon, I guess!). Just this past weekend it was 82 one day and 52 the next. Mother Nature – what is up!?
