As 2018 slides into 2019 I sit back and reflect on what a wonderful year I had. I changed my career path from Structural Design to Business Development. I met my wonderful girlfriend Catherine and was also able to travel to all these amazing places:
- Thailand (Bangkok, Ayutthaya, Kanchanaburi, Koh Samui)
- France (Paris, Mont Saint Michel, Toulouse, Lyon)
- Spain (Barcelona)
- Drive US Route 66 with my Father
- Visit Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary with my Mother
- Greece (Athens, Santorini)
- Switzerland (Zurich, Jungfraujoch)
- Ottawa with Catherine TWICE!
- Jasper National Park
On New Years Eve I prepared Catherine and I a delicious dinner of salmon, garlic mashed potatoes, and mixed vegetables, then we went skating at Canada Olympic Plaza before making a toast to 2019 with some champagne and fireworks.
I’m extremely looking forward to 2019 as there are quite a few wonderful things planned.
- Travel to Chile / Argentina / Paraguay / Brazil
- Travel to Vietnam / Chile
- See Darci Lynne Live in Portland
- Moving to a New House
- Numerous Alberta Hikes (Galatea Lake & Lillian Lake, Junction Creek to name a few)
Today I went to see Mont Saint-Michel. I woke up at 6:00am. I took the Metro to Montparnasse Station to catch the 7:40am TGV to Rennes. Upon arriving in Rennes I transferred to a coach which took me to Mont Saint-Michele. I explored around the complex, including the Abbey, which was absolutely incredible. When I arrived it was raining fairly heavily and was very windy, but by the time I left the skies were blue and the sun was shining. It was great being able to see the contrast between the morning and afternoon!
I had a baguette with egg, chicken and cheese, as well as a beer for lunch at a small café at the base of the abbey. I took the 2:05pm bus back to the train station where I purchased a train ticket back to Paris in the 3:45pm train. I had some difficulty with my TD Aeroplan credit card yet again, so I’ll have to look into getting a different card when I return. It rarely works when I travel even though I’ve told TD I travel a lot and they should know that. It worked this morning for a coffee on the train, but apparently a train ticket is a fraudulent purchase…
When I arrived back in Paris I picked up some took the Metro back to my hotel. I had to pickup some Band-Aids on the way because I noticed my toes were rubbing together quite badly due to the fact I’ve been walking so much the past few days. When I got back I showered and tapped up my toes with Band-Aids.
I went out for dinner to Las du’ Falafel and had a lamb Shawarma, which was delicious! I head back to my hotel again and fell asleep around 9:00pm because I was so tired.
