Iâ€™ve been doing some of out of the ordinary things lately.
Iâ€™m back at work after a short hiatus and it feels different â€“ as if Iâ€™ve been gone for months.
It was another trip down south this weekend. My regular trips to Seattle arenâ€™t just because of my love of The Emerald City; thereâ€™s a bit of economics involved as itâ€™s the most inexpensive destination in my vicinity.
I should have added my time to the equation this trip; I sat in traffic most of the time!
I spent another two excruciating hours waiting at the border to get back into Canada.
motel hotel we slept was sketchy at best; donâ€™t let their website fool you.
Our key cards wouldnâ€™t work TWICE, the staff was blasÃ©, and security doesnâ€™t seem to be a big concern for them.
We spent two nights and that was plenty enough, the lesson learnt…â€œTrip Advisor is my friendâ€
And if that wasnâ€™t bad enough, we spent Friday (in traffic) looking for a â€œGhanaian storeâ€ that turned out be a garage in some out of the way area in Seattle â€“ Iâ€™m still amazed we were able to find it.
But it wasnâ€™t all bad experiences; some soul altering moments developed from the trip.
Next month Iâ€™m going to Victoria.
