Place 72 – Day 389: Vancouver, BC – Post Work Nap

Curtis’ Day

The start to Curtis’ day was quite slow.

Curtis had a 1 on 1 meeting and then a team meeting after that.

He got some admin completed and then some tickets before he had another team meeting to discuss some process changes and then he had some lunch.

After lunch, Curtis did a bunch of tickets, which all seemed to come in at once. Most of these were giving permissions to people, though one was getting some usage stats for someone.

Kim’s Day

Kim started her day with a donut catchup with someone in the UK and someone in Boston! It was so lovely to just relax and hang out. It was an easy-going conversation too!

After this Kim took the car to pick up some plastic spray bottles for the office from canadian tire. She dropped those off at work while she picked up a load of stuff that she is donating to a local youth centre. It was another cars worth, so when she got to the centre, she parked out back and unloaded the car. Its cleared out so much space in the office and Kim also took some stuff from home too!

After Kim had been in the office for a while she hosted a game time. As connect four was so successful last time Kim decided to try it again. 3 other people joined and everyone played everyone and it was so much fun!

She then updated Survey Monkey to a paid account as on the free version Kim was only able to view the first 40 responses. As its been updated, Kim is now able to export the information. This means that some of the work she did yesterday is pointless, bur it saves kim some work going forward.

Kim grabbed some lunch in mid afternoon and then spent the last bit of the day working out who is okay for Kim ro clear their desks. As Megadesk has been okaied Kim now has to empty out all the desks. Some people will come in to clear their stuff themselves, but for some desks Kim will box stuff up, label it and store it around the office.

Post Work Nap

After Kim got home, we had a lay down and ended up having a nap! It did Kim wonders and she felt amazing. Curtis on the other hand didn’t feel great, but eventually he woke up a bit.

We played some Tony Hawk and then Kim went off to pole, which she was very refreshed for now!

When Kim got home, we had homemade chicken nuggets with curly fries for dinner and watched some TV.

Place 74 – Day 1: San Francisco,CA 🇺🇸 – A Bumpy Flight, Living In A Garage & A Brewery

Train To The Airport

We had no breakfast left this morning as we ate it for a snack last night, so we passed on breakfast and just got showered and ready to go.

We were mostly packed, just the last few things to add, and then we left the apartment and walked to the train station.

We bought our tickets for the train and waited the 10 minutes for it to arrive.

We sat on the train for about 30 minutes and then arrived at the airport.

Seattle > San Francisco

We checked our bag when we got to the airport and went through security.

We were hungry, so were on the hunt for some food, but we had to get to our gate which was in the N section, so we had to ride the plane train briefly.

We got a breakfast bagel each and sat and waited for our plane to board. We were sitting right at the back, so were last on.

The flight was pretty bumpy, but it was just 1 hour 40 minutes, so it was no problem, really.

We listened to podcasts on the plane and we also got a free drink & biscuit.

San Francisco

We landed and walked down to the baggage claim, where our bag already was!

We then saw a sign regarding Uber, which said we had to get it from the top of the parking garage, so we walked there.

Once we got there, we were told what to select on Uber and actually got a small discount for doing it from the right place, which is quite cool!

We got a BMW 5 series, which was cool, and sat in the car for 33 minutes to get to where we are staying.

Living In A Garage

We arrived at our AirBnb and got ourselves in. This is in a garage in someone’s house, but it’s pretty nice! The main thing we have noticed about San Francisco so far is that it is obviously much warmer than Seattle, which is great!

We can actually see the Golden Gate bridge when we walk down the road a little, which is awesome.

Dinner

We went to a brewery for dinner as it is a 5 minute walk from our apartment.

The food was actually great and the beer was good, too!

We had the mac and cheese sharer, sweet potato fries and grilled broccoli.

The broccoli stole the show but the mac and cheese wasn’t as good as we had hoped.

We came home and relaxed watching some TV and planning some things to do whilst we are here.
