When Mike asked me if I would go up to Edmonton with him for a week, I was torn. I knew during covid, I wouldn’t be able to explore much, but I also knew how bored he would be–so I joined him. (I also, secretly wanted to see if I could live in a hotel for a week. Self improvement is huge for me.)
Our journey so far has been interesting.
The drive to Edmonton was bad. We just had a massive thunderstorm in Calgary. Probably the biggest one I’ve ever seen in my life–and in Ontario, this is common. We woke up to bright blue lights and thunder sounds that would shake the whole house. It was so beautiful and magical.
Mike and I don’t travel well. Okay. I don’t travel well. I like schedules. I like knowing what we will be doing. So when Mike said we’d be leaving by 3pm… and we left at 5pm… I was not a happy camper.
The drive was riddled with rain and winds so strong, the wipers would fly off. But Mike is an amazing driver. 🙂 He crashed hard when we arrived at our hotel. 🙂
Mike’s company for some reason, didn’t front this days hotel stay so I found us a hotel in Nisku (which Mike and I found out is just the Industrial section of Leduc). Because the state of emergency is still upon us, finding food sources that weren’t fast food at 9pm is hard. 😦 Especially in a small town like Leduc.
We had a late call with the finance team and Mike was off to bed.
So far… the trip was uneventful.
