Place 72 – Day 888: Vancouver, BC – Manicure & Pedicure!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis had to deal with something frustrating for 2 hours in the morning, which eventually turned into a future meeting to discuss the situation.

After he did that, he had a team meeting for 30 minutes, followed by some tickets and some security work, which was for about an hour.

Curtis had a conversation with his manager about something, just to keep them in the loop, then he did some project work up until lunch.

After lunch, Curtis created a new project and then did some tickets and admin before wrapping up for the day and playing some games with colleagues, as Kim was out getting pampered.

Kim’s Day

To start her day Kim gave some equipment to someone who came to collect it. She then finished getting ready for the day and then joined a meeting that lasted the whole morning. It was a follow on from a meeting a couple of weeks ago, it was very interesting and Kim learnt a lot!

She had a quick break where she made some lunch and then she joined a meeting to kick off the book club for the company! Kim then joined a planning meeting followed by an interview.

To finish the day Kim joined a social meeting where everyone in the company was on the call. She left that meeting and went to a nail salon with a friend, which was masked and distanced. It was so much fun and a couple of hours of a bit if normalcy!


We ordered Indian food and had that for dinner. It was excellent, as ever.

We watched some TV and relaxed for the evening. We are glad it’s the weekend! Another busy week in the books.

Place 77 – Day 2: Las Vegas,NV – 8 Year Anniversary, The Strip & Best Meal Ever


We got up at a decent(ish) time, but as we are in a hotel, we don’t have a kitchen, so we had to go out for breakfast.

We went to Denny’s for breakfast and each got some sausages, egg, bacon and Curtis got muffins whilst Kim got pancakes with hers.

Curtis had a few cups of coffee and then we left to head down to the strip.

The Strip

We got to the Mendeley Bay hotel where we got out and walked around.

Whilst we were in our Lyft, we were told that the mango margarita from a specific bar was good, so we went there to share one.

Once we had that, we walked around and looked at shops before we went outside and explored the rest of the strip.

We didn’t do anything really, just walked around looking at each restaurant and attraction.

We saw the big fountain by Bellagio and walked around a few hotels.

Manicure & Pedicure

We came back to the hotel and Curtis watched hockey. Whilst he did that, Kim got a manicure and pedicure as she has wanted one for a while.

Best Dinner Ever

As it was our 8 year anniversary, we found a nice restaurant to head to for dinner.

We got a couple of drinks before we went in and then were called in when our table was ready.

We had a booth which was lovely!

Firstly, our waiter, Miguel, was excellent. We got some free bread with a delicious tomato concoction.

We got steak tenderloin with mushrooms for a starter, which was actually a lot of food!

This starter was amazing, and then we moved to the main.

We had a 10oz Filet Mignon each, cooked medium rare, with the signature sauce, accompanied with white truffle oil whipped potato and asparagus with onion and balsamic.

This is the best meal, and steak, we have ever had. The steak was 30 day dry aged, butchered on site and is in the top 9% of all of the US beef.

This meal was great and we left incredibly full and very happy.
