Happy Weekend everyone! I am now on week two in my new job, and feel like I am getting settled in and have a good idea of what the next six months will be like. It has been exciting learning about a new product and the ways that the product will help to change the way people travel. This week has been busy in the best sense of the word … after work my schedule was full catching up with friends, working on the visual concept for the site redesign and dreaming about where my adventures will take me in 2013.
This week, my adventures included:
+ Starting a ballet class. I have a hard time doing physical activity during the work week because my schedule is so busy, (I know lame excuse) but ballet is one of the things I love most. I took ballet classes for 12 years growing up, so it is not only a good workout, but something I really enjoy.
+ Catching up with a high school friend that I haven’t seen in almost a year even though we live in the same city! It was so good to hear how she is doing, listen to what her everyday is all about and make a pact to not let as much time go by before we see each other again.
+ Watching Les Mis, and left the movie theater wanting to give away every material possession I own. I saw it in London last time I was there, and remember leaving with a similar feeling, but the movie magnified every struggle to the um-teenth power. Highly recommend seeing it.
And a few of my favorite travel related links and finds from this week:
