Happy New Year everyone! I hope your celebrations went well.
We decided to go visit Edgewater and see if we could get a glimpse of the NYC fireworks this year, as well as get shabu-shabu. The display wasn’t as big as we had hoped, but the food was good and we were in good company.
We then drove off to Canada, final destination Quebec City! We stopped by in Montreal for breakfast. Shout-out to the two random guys in a car that offered me weed. I appreciate the sentiment, hope you had a great New Year’s. I did not accept, by the way. We stopped into Second Cup before heading off again.
I said I wouldn’t make a directly Iceland related post, so this post is not about Iceland (though I am absolutely going to use a ton of the same tags.) Instead I wanted to make a little tribute to my level-headed and adorable travel mate, Mr. Chokkattu.
In the kayak, Seyðisfjörður
Not only was it his idea to go to Iceland despite my original hesitation and ignorance, he helped make the trip worthwhile by being his kind, patient, sweet, wonderful self.
We drove down to Miami, Florida for Spring Break. It’s gorgeous and warm and the AirBnB house we’re staying in is calm and lovely.
We got there a little after 8, unfortunately, because we got caught in traffic because of several accidents on the way down. Like I’m talking an overturned truck, a destroyed yacht, and a collision type of accidents. And because of that, we sat in Florida rush hour as well.
I’ll try to update this as much as possible, but don’t bank on it. I didn’t bring a lot of fragrances with me, and I doubt I’m going to get much reading done. I do have a bit of work to do, but otherwise, I’m determined to keep this trip worry free 🙂
Went to the Saatchi & Saatchi ‘7×7’ Seminar at BB King after my volunteering shift! It was fantastic, although I wish everyone had more time to speak. That was the point though; seven people, with seven minutes each.
I also caught the end of the previous seminar, which was about social awareness through advertising with the creators in charge of the Truth campaign and Evolve’s gun safety campaign:
Don’t Be a Dumbass:
As well as Budweiser’s love affair with puppies continuing to make people ‘aw’ and cry and this time, warn people against drinking and driving.
I love lightning on the road. It’s as if someone took a hot knife and carved a line through the sky and the highway glows periwinkle and the lights surrounding flash just a little brighter for a second. Thunder just adds to whatever music I’m playing at the time.
Actual rain on the other hand tends to be kind of a drag. Silly northwest New Jersey and their random night squalls. Trying to kill me and shit.
