My Homes This Week

From our company Grand Meetup in Vancouver to home in northern NY to working while camping at my favorite beach (Southwick) to relaxing with friends while camping at Cranberry Lake in the Adirondacks. Fantastic week.

Meeting/Greeting Settling and Planning

It’s so beautiful here in Canada! We had a two-ish-hour bus ride from the airport to Whistler, and I was desperate for sleep (had already been traveling for 11 hrs), but I couldn’t allow myself to nap. The scenery was breath-taking. And the bus driver kept us well-entertained with a history of the area and fun facts about the place we passed.

But let me back up. I had the smoothest trip one could possibly imagine. I met up with 13 co-workers in Minneapolis and enjoyed the flight with friends.

 

Customs looked a bit daunting, but the lines moved fast. The airport was beautiful, and I enjoyed hearing the background sound of water from the art fountain pictured here as we went through the line.

We reconnected with friends/co-workers we already knew and met some new ones.

Then settled into the hotel. My room is gorgeous and will be a nice respite when I need a break from socialising (as if).

Remember that toothpaste I was worried about? Not an issue. I forgot that the company cares for us so well that they had provided all sorts of things we might need (apparently mint-chocolates are a necessity, because there was a basket of those along with sunblock, toothpaste and other necessities 🙂

We had a lovely Welcome dinner with veggies, cheeses, meats, sushi, dumplings and pasta.

Then off to be for me. I was exhausted!!!!

Now I’m off to breakfast and meetings with my team. It’s going to be a busy work day, and I can’t wait.
