Tomorrow I leave on my last business trip in my job. I’m hitting up Edmonton (probably one of my favourite cities and definitely the one I have traveled to the most while in this job) and then Saskatoon before coming home late Friday.
It’s weird because, despite my massive hate about the constant travel in this job, I will miss the change of scenery that this constant traveling did provide. If I ever got tired of Winnipeg, I knew it wouldn’t be long before I was in a new city for a few days.
I will also miss my personal habits while traveling–essentially certain people I would see and certain things I would do while I was away. I will miss the opportunity to hit up J.Crew and shop with my dear friend/personal shopper…and in truth West Edmonton Mall with all of it’s great stores that Winnipeg doesn’t have. I will miss trips to Calgary where I would get to hang with the lovely Princess Lindsey–my co-blogger. I will miss shopping with only one sales tax. I will miss running routes around university campuses amid fall colours.
I will miss trips to Ottawa–where I would book extra holidays and hang with dear friends I only get to see via Facetime. I would run around Parliament, and in two provinces in one run…give Terry Fox’s memorial statue a lucky rub on the toe.
So I go into this trip a little heavy hearted but also excited about what is to come. Soon I will be in a new job, that will lack in travel, but will be abundant in new challenges and opportunities to learn. Plus, I will have 3 weeks of holidays in this job, so it means I will be able to get away somewhere…I hope! 😉
