Sorry I’ve been so MIA but I just got back from a business trip to Las Vegas! I have been there a few times, but always for fun, so this was a little different. Although I still managed to do lots of things that I wanted to in between work:
….Saw my little twin nephews in London. Aren’t they the cutest?! I love this picture because it was taken at the other side of the balcony door and you can see London through the reflection.
….Hung out with my cousin in San Francisco, she studies close by. We went to Fisherman’s Wharf and the best chocolate factory ever: Ghiradellis! I love that city so much. I would totally live there if I could! Even the airport has a yoga room:
….Met a close university friend everyday I was there who also came for the business fair. It was just like old times.
….We went to see David Copperfield and the Titanic exhibition – both were fascinating and I highly recommend!
….Bought this book which I am super excited to try (i’m not vegan but i try to stay dairy free):
….I ate delicious foods and enjoyed the rare treat of Starbucks everyday. Here is a picture of some very pretty green tea ice cream!
And on the way back I stopped in London again for the babies first hair cut! We have a tradition on the 13th month where babies get their hair cut, apparently to allow their hair to grow nice and thick when they get older. They cried so much! But here is the end result, we are so proud of them:
In other news, the flight from Las Vegas back to San Francisco was so scary! I’m talking about severe turbulence. The plane suddenly dropped and shook about 4 times in a row. People were screaming and crying, including the airhostess who had fallen onto a passengers lap (right opposite me). People had just been given drinks so there was juice and other beverages spilt all over. Afterwards everyone was shaking and its all anyone could discuss. I am surprised to recap that only three thoughts came into my head at that time:
- This is just like in the movies.
- Why don’t I ever pay full attention during all those safety videos?!
- I really hope I don’t die (and the praying commenced!).
But yey I survived to write this post! This trip was full of close calls, almost missed my connecting flight because of a delay and the taxi almost ran over a scooter when I arrived into Gib. I think life sometimes likes to spruce things up a bit and keep us on our toes!
So, now you are completely up to date! 😉 Needless to say I am glad to be home sweet home and ready to get back into routine! I found it so hard to be eat well in a hotel, do blueberry pancakes count?
Have you ever had a scary travelling experience?
