Last night I went to an industry party. Stray Travel had their brochure release party at the Dakota bar in Auckland. Nothing beats and open bar and the gathering of the travel industry peeps! I had to work until 8:30pm yesterday as I was doing an info session for IEP. I wasn’t even aware of the party until I got a text from my boss telling us to come down and have a drink. I guess the theme was the 80′s ski scene – it def took me back to my childhood. There were a couple of skin tight ski suits, their was a dude in a bunny costume aka the ski bunny, some legendary 80′s fluro all in one ski suit, lots of toques or as kiwi’s say beanies, headbands and big hair, goggles and mirrored sunnies. It was great! Everyone was really into it and it made the party that much better. Unfortunately I didn’t have camera on me or I would have documented some of the awesomeness that went down. Today was a long day at work, but definitely worth it!
Next week I will be off on my work road trip for three weeks. Im pretty stoked for it. Ill finally be getting some travelling in and seeing a little bit more of the country. The best part is that work will be forking the bill! Sweet as! I will visit Palmerston North, Wellington, Dunedin, Christchurch and Hamilton. I have a weekend to myself in Dunedin, of course Im hoping to rent a mountain bike and check out their local trails. From what I have researched they have a pretty good scene that should be accessible for myself. I also have a day in Christchurch and have found a place to rent a bike and hopefully get a guide or at least directions to some trails. Time is flying by and Im sure the next three weeks will go bye even faster since I will be on the road. Life is good!
