Place 72 – Day 454: Vancouver, BC – Facilities Project

Curtis’ Day

Curtis had a chat with someone right away in the morning as they had deleted a lot of shared files, so Curtis had to work getting those back (which took about an hour).

After that, Curtis had a Norwegian lesson which went really, really well!

After the lesson, Curtis did a few tickets and then had some lunch.

After lunch, the day slowed down for Curtis so he got some admin done and a bit of other work. He had to investigate some quarantined files for someone and see if they are safe to allow.

Kim’s Day

To get ready for the weekly company wide meeting Kim added to her notes she has been making over the past week and checked last weeks notes.

After the meeting Kim joined another meeting that was going over a job description for a potential new role. It was really interesting as yesterday Kim had made a job description template and it was really fun to see the few things she had thought of already and also learn the many things she had forgotten or overlooked.

For the last part of the morning Kim spent some time arranging meetings for Kims facilities project that she will be working on in the afternoon, which was interesting. Then Kim wrote up and sent out the invite for the winter party, which was great as it was something that Kim had wanted to get sorted for a few days!

Before Kim went out for the afternoon she wrote up a lot of the information for the connect four tournament that she will be running over the next few weeks / months. She didn’t manage to send out the information, but she got a lot of it ready!

Kim then went out and met her colleague for the facilities project and attended a few meetings. It was a really interesting and fun afternoon that Kim will be able to say more about at some point!

After all the meetings Kim and her colleague went to a craft store to pick up a few items for an upcoming event. When she got home Kim wrote up a summary of the day and then sent out the information and sign up sheet for the connect four tournament! Today was a long, successful and very fun day!

Evening

Once Kim got back home and finished her little bit of work, we had the final bit of lasagna and watched some TV. That was pretty much all we did for the evening!

Place 82 – Day 2: Miami,FL – Bayside Park & Miami Tower

Croissants & Coffee

We had a bit of a sleep in this morning, which we thought was deserved after a long and stressful day yesterday.

We needed some breakfast but had nothing here, so we went to a French cafe just 5 minutes away.

We got to La Provence cafe and ordered 2 croissants each as well as a cappuccino each.

The food was actually not bad and the coffee was good, but the service wasn’t great.

Bayside Park

We’d said all day that we didn’t plan to do anything really, so we went for a walk around Bayside Park. This is a nice park on the side of the bay with expensive boats driving around as well as vibrant palm trees with coconuts in them.

We saw the freedom tower at the end of our walk too, which is a very cool looking building.

Party?

We got back to the apartment and sat out on our balcony watching time go by.

We wanted to watch a bit of TV so we moved back into our room.

We got a text from our host saying he was having some friends over, which was not a problem, of course.

This then seemed to turn to a party, so we hid away for a few hours whilst they partied and then we got hungry so went out to find some food.

Miami Tower

Before we found food, we stopped and looked at the Miami Tower, which is a nice building which gets lit up at night.

Whole Foods

We could only find a Whole Foods as a supermarket nearby, so we went there, not expecting to like it much. We were wrong!

It is all organic, so we were expecting it to be expensive but it wasn’t a bad price at all and there was a good selection as well as interesting concepts around the store.

We settled on a lasagne as well as a bottle of wine, just to relax.

Dinner

We got back home and put the lasagne in the oven and relaxed until that was done.

We ate our lasagne and our host was watching Game of Thrones…Clearly something was happening but we’ve never watched it so we had no idea!

Tomorrow, Curtis has 2 phone interviews in the morning and early afternoon, so no plans for us until then…but let’s hope that means he gets a job!
