Greetings from the Sunshine State! Round two of my “work remotely in 2012” goal has brought us to Florida for a bit. Hello, sunshine!
Dirty Minds – I joined my coworker Jessica at Powell’s Hawthorne last week to catch Kayt Sukel’s book reading. She’s a travel blogger and new author, and it was interesting to hear her talk about this book and chat with her afterwords. Adding her book to my reading list! [Dirty Minds: How Our Brains Influence Love, Sex, and Relationships]
Bamboo Sushi & Pix Patisserie – I talk about Bamboo Sushi too much. It’s my favorite sushi place in Portland. Followed up by a visit to Pix for coffee & a lemon tart with my BFF is pretty much the perfect Friday night.
airports with wifi – the downside of using frequent flyer miles is that you can spend all day in transit (still worth the $10 flight though!). So thankfully there are airports with free wifi and “brew pubs” (Denver’s New Belgium Hub) to pass the time.
Treasure Island – Our rental here in Treasure Island exceeded my expectations! It’s so fun being this close to the beach. Our first night here, we took an evening run to the beach (where they apparently do a weekly drum circle) and watched a giant pink/orange sun fall into the ocean, before running back “home”. Yay, Florida!
