The journey back from Portland was excruciating: delays, quality time in the Denver airport (note to all: few vegan/gluten-free food options), and (temporarily) lost luggage. This only underscored my reluctance to return to Philly.
But…my vacation was amazing! Quite possibly the best trip in years! Alana (one of my first friends in Portland) was a great hostess, providing both a couch that might be more comfortable than my actual bed and the use of her cute French bike.
Why was my trip so great?
Hmmm…lots of biking in the sunshine with Susie, Brandon, and Alana.
Copious amounts of mexican food.
Late night champagne in a secret spot on the esplanade (a bike/walk path that runs along the river).
Constant hilarity with Alana.
A bike ride to Oaks Park (an old amusement park).
Solid nights of sleep and days full of adventure.
My friends. All of them are nothing less than wonderful.
I’ve spent the nights since my return working on cover letters. I’ll let you guess the location of my dream job.
You can find more photos on Facebook. What, we’re not friends on FB? Send me a friend request…you can find me by searching my email address (firstname.lastname@example.org). And while you’re at it, send me a note telling me what you think of Frightened by Bees.
More “real” content coming this week. And if anyone has any job search website tips, give me a holler.
