Jake and I recently had the most amazing opportunity to travel to England with his family. The main reason for the trip was to celebrate our dear family friend’s wedding on the Saturday, but we decided to also extend the trip into the week after to do some exploring together. It was a jam-packed, adventurous, exciting, tiring and wonderful experience that I miss dearly already!
It may just be St. Patrick’s Day today, but I feel like I’m all Irish’ed out from my celebrations this past Sunday, March 12. No, I am not referring to an epic party of some sort. I am referring to the 5K I took part in.
Don’t worry, you read that right, no one has taken over my blog without me knowing… I participated for the Huntington Society of Canada, my new job. And like always, I dragged Jake with me.
This past weekend I finally took my first trip to Niagara Falls (that I can remember at least) thanks to my amazing parents. They gave me the trip as a graduation present so Jake, my Mom, my Dad and I packed our bags, met at a car pool and were on our way to The Falls.
Although I have only been living in the Kitchener-Waterloo area for just over one month, I recently had the opportunity to be the expert on the area when touring around with my friend from back home, Melissa.
Lately, I have been trying my hand at being self employed. Although I am still working at Reid’s Dairy, I am also trying to get into the Public Relations Field as I wait for graduation and while I put feelers out at companies, I am doing some independent work. One of my independent jobs, is for Bay of Quinte Tourism’s upcoming Antiques Trail. So today, I was getting paid to shop for antiques.
After 14 weeks of placement and two jobs, I was ready for a much needed vacation. So my sister, Jake and I packed our bags and headed to Ottawa.
It is no secret that Jake loves his beer and subsequently, I have found a love for the beverage myself. So where do you take a devoted beer lover? Well, to Toronto’s Festival of Beer of course!
Yet another adventure has come and gone this past weekend for myself and Jake, but this time, it was not an area we have ever thought of exploring. We went to Waterloo.
On the weekend of June 4 and 5, I had the opportunity to represent Bay of Quinte Tourism at The Great Canadian Cheese Festival in Picton, Ontario. I had never been to the event before, but was told that I would absolutely love it and boy did I ever! As usual, I dragged Jake with me and started our journey of all things cheese.
As many of you now know, I am completing my PR internship this summer with Bay of Quinte Tourism in Belleville. What you may not know, though, is how awesome this internship is. I have so many opportunities to interact with the community, explore cool places and learn new things every day. One of these amazing opportunities arose today.
