Place 72 – Day 397: Vancouver, BC – Dos!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis had to catch up on a bunch of things after being away for a week, so he did that for most of the day.

A new round of computer checkups has started, too, so Curtis had some people to contact and setup a time to check some things on their laptops.

He had a team meeting at one point in the morning and then had to contact a bunch of people for the computer checkups.

As well as this, Curtis had to coordinate and plan for some new people starting, which Curtis has to head to the office for tomorrow to setup some laptops and send them out.

Curtis did some tickets and some other admin and then was done for the day. It went very fast and was very busy!

Kim’s Day

Kim spent a good portion of her morning catching up on emails and messages. She took some time to check on incoming laptops and ensure that they were all on their way or received and she looked into a few company updates that went out. Kim also sent out a charger to a remote worker.

After shipping out the charging cable Kim went through her voicemails. Most of them were for her colleague so she wrote up all the phone notes and sent them over.

A laptop had been returned to one of the offices, but it is now required back in the Vancouver office. So Kim spoke with an employee from that office and arranged that they will send it back. Kim put the paperwork together and sent it all over to the colleague who will help out.

In the afternoon Kim spent more time on the hoodies that need to be sent out over the coming weeks. She has a preset page on a spreadsheet for sheets of stickers and started adding employees addresses there so that the ink doesnt smudge and Kim has to write less.

Dos!

When Kim got home, we made some sandwiches for dinner. Kim had brie, mushrooms and shallots in her sandwich with mustard.

Curtis had wagu steak, mushrooms, shallots and mustard in his.

We ate these and watched some TV and then we played some Dos, which is made by Uno, and is similar but has some different rules, of course. Kim bought this for Curtis for his birthday, but it only arrived today!

We figured out how to play that and played it for way longer than we probably should have!

We watched some TV for the rest of the evening and then headed to bed.


This Time Last Year!

Place 81 – Day 6: Orlando,FL – Easter Sunday Swim

Swim

Kim and Abbie really wanted to surf today, so they headed down the beach with Tom & Maggie to see if they could rent some surfboards.

They Got A Nice Family Photo

Unfortunately, there were no waves for surfing, so instead they just swam and the weather was perfect.

Whilst this happened, Curtis was back at the house relaxing and watching an important Leafs playoff game.

After a few hours of swimming and relaxing, a coffee was purchased and they went back to the house.

Panda Express

After Curtis finished watching hockey, we went for some dinner at Panda Express as it is quick, easy & tasty.

We all ate up and then went looking for some dessert in Waffle House, but it turns out they aren’t really a dessert waffle place so we gave up and went home.

Dramatic Card Games

We played some card games together today.

Abbie had a game which she wanted to share with us which was like spies and agents. It took us a bit to get our heads around it but really enjoyed it once we got it.

We played a few games of that and then some games of UNO before it was bed time.

Place 71 – Day 3: Portland, OR – Chinatown, Downtown & Food Trucks

Admin Morning

We were up early and were ready to go!

We went down for our breakfast and were reunited with some of our crew from yesterday.

We then went upstairs, got showered and planned to start the day.

We did a bit of admin and before we knew it, it was 14:00!

We decided we should go out for a bit, so we walked down to Chinatown for something to eat.

Very Stylish Looking Buildings Near Our Hostel

Chinatown

We had thought that Chinatown would be awesome, as it is in most places, but it was very disappointing.

There was very little to eat and it was very run down.

A Bit Of Wall Art In Chinatown

Downtown

We left Chinatown and went to the downtown area, which was very built up and actually looked really nice.

We walked around a bit and around some malls, but before that we stopped at a Vietnamese street food place called ‘cuòn‘.

This place had really good (but not perfect) Banh Mi & incredible Vietnamese iced coffee.

Beer Tasting & Uno

We got back and chilled out for a bit before we did the free hostel beer tasting.

The hostel has beer on tap and we were able to get 6 to try and then a pint for $2 discount after, so we got the group from yesterday all back together and had some drinks.

2 girls, one from France and another from Denmark were playing Uno next to us and so we all joined in and had a few games of Uno, which was great fun!

Food Trucks

We planned to got to a comedy show at 22:30, so we all headed to town to get food first.

We were informed of some food trucks, so we went to find those and see what there was.

There was a lot of greek/turkish, so we decided on kebabs!

Kim had a chicken kebab and Curtis had a pork one. They were just what we needed. We all stood around and ate our food before going towards the comedy show.

The Gang!

The Comedy Show

We got to the venue and were unable to get a seat at the comedy show, so we sat up in the bar area instead.

We had a drink and chatted between us, as well as speaking with some other people in the bar.

It got pretty late so everyone headed out, but we had another awesome day!

We have fun planned for tomorrow so should be an interesting one.
