Trip Wrap-Up

Today was a real gift. After attending the conference closing session this morning, I took a lovely walk downtown (the first real fresh air since the conference started) and shopped the main district. I looked in all the stores we don't have in Canada, I tried all the testers in the bath stuff store until I smelled like VanillaOrangeCherryBlossomPumkinSpice (yum). I tried on a ridiculous quantity of clothing and found two great pairs of pants, four tops and two pairs of shoes. All of it on sale! And then I had some of the best sushi I have EVER had. I have a motto about travelling: wherever you go, make sure you have one fantastic meal. Because even if the rest of the trip is gross, at least you can remember the one fantastic meal. The sushi was that meal for me.

The conference has been good - lots of really nice people, some very interesting session topics and some great speakers. Definitely a positive experience, and I'm looking forward to next year. That being said, I'm really tired of schmoozing; it's time to go home.
