I’m sorry that I’ve been a horrible blogger lately! (You’ll notice my laziness and procrastination are running themes in this blog.) Here’s a gif of me acting funny. Jennifer (of the blog I Run For Chocolate Cake) was trying to take pictures of me jumping but apparently I can’t stay in mid air long enough for her to snap the photo.
Anyway, the last you heard, I was on my way to Mexico via Calgary.
Day 0 (T minus 1 day to Mexico)
While waiting at the gate to board my plane at YVR, I figured something was wrong because the flight that was going out 15 minutes after us had managed to board everyone before we even started. At one point, I overheard one of the flight attendants say that they airline had no idea where the plane was. Anyway, we were late getting out of Vancouver – which was unexpected considering we were one of the first flights of the day but only ended up being a couple minutes late coming into Calgary.
Once i got into YYC, Jenn picked me up and we went to the Calgary Farmers Market to have lunch. I gotta say that Calgary’s Farmers Market is far far superior to anything we have in Vancouver. It’s much cleaner (the floors, the tables, the bathrooms etc), it’s got a bigger variety of (healthier) foods and it’s less chaotic because there are fewer people and the layout makes more sense. The closest thing I can think of in Vancouver is the Granville Island Public Market but it’s more crowded and definitely isn’t cleaner. At the farmers market, we got some crepes and smoothies lunch and meat pies for dinner later that night. Also some nuts and corn snacks too. Mmmm! Oh and some tea and some almond butter. The meat pies were the some of the yummiest things I had my whole trip.
After lunch, Jennifer drove me to her place which I also couldn’t wait to see. Since we last met up in early July 2013, she had went and bought her first place. I couldn’t wait to see in person all the uniquely Jenn touches she did to the place. (Shown in detail in this post here.) My favourite detail of her place was a little world map she drew that was also a bucket list of sorts.
We ended up just relaxing at her place for the rest of the day/evening because we was going to be an early morning (again) to get to the airport and off to Cancun (finally).
Look later this week for my recap of our first day in Mexico! Also a video! (Ooooh!)
