Another day, another summit reached

Aloha all! Today was a wonderful final full day in the beautiful city of Honolulu, Hawaii. I woke up today and decided to take a drive around once again, feeling sure I would find something cool, and I was not disappointed. While driving I noticed a sign for the Diamond Head State Monument… I felt…

Another day, another world premiere

Let me just start at the end of my day, because it turned out to be pretty cool. You know how you’ll see those red carpet events, all the stars walking down and giving interviews and all that jazz? Well turns out I was there for one of those. I had to move my car…




Island

Let’s take a drive…

Aloha and Hello! First night in a hostel – check! Actually not too bad, the bed isn’t anything to write home about but hey, it cost $30 instead of $160 at the hotel across the road. I’ll suck it up. Woke up at 6am this morning, my body still isn’t quite used to the whole…



Aloha from Hawaii

Aloha from Hawaii

Aloha! Arrived in Hawaii last night and rented a car – decided I wasn’t going to repeat the Vancouver fiasco, and I’d like to get around the island a bit. I’ll hang on to it for a couple of days and see how it goes. Arrived at the Queen Kapiolani hotel and took a walk…

I’m on a plane!

Well it’s been an interesting, and actually a very busy week! It was terrific to meet so many people from the Best Buy Canadian HQ. I was always impressed when speaking with them from a store, but meeting them in person really makes me see what a terrific group of people we have here. It’s…

Best Buy CHQ: I have arrived

Sorry for the lack of updates, but it’s been a busy week! Or beginning of the week I guess. My trip has officially started! I said goodbye to my family last night at Toronto Pearson International, boarded an Air Canada flight to YVR Vancouver and arrived last night, fully loaded with my uber cool 60l…

Things I’m learning this week

So I admit, I’m a bit of a last minute person. Especially around travel. I find if I pre-plan too far out I get myself over-excited and worked up, only to remember that I still have X days, weeks or months to go. So I left a few things to the last minute. It didn’t…

Bon Voyage party? Check

Wow, busy week! The last blog entry had me at T-3 days left of work, today is technically my first “day off” of work (since I’d normally be back on a Sunday), so it’s actually starting to sink in! It was a crazy busy week last week, lots to finish up at the store, and…

T-3

Happy Labour Day! Hope everyone had a fun day off work! My countdown is getting pretty serious now – T-3 days until I’ve finished work! Since I know you expect “more” when you come here, I also just wanted to share that “T-” means “TIME minus” – just in case you didn’t know that. You’re…
