Jeg havde været meget omhyggelig og fundet et hotel, der så ud til at ligge i gå-afstand fra kongrescenteret. Desuden var det billigt. Win-win! Desværre er der lige den biting, at der mellem hotel og kongrescenter er en motorvej. For at krydse denne, skal jeg gå 3 km enten den ene eller den anden vej, komme over på den anden side og så gå 3 km tilbage....... Og for alle de penge, jeg nu må bruge på taxa, kunne jeg sagtens have fundet et andet hotel tættere på!
Men hvad. Det hedder livs-erfaring, ikke?
My life is running ahead of me..... Right now I'm actually in Florida for a conference. I left Denmark on Wednesday, and I really love landing in the middle of palm trees, sunshine and warmth!
I had been very careful, finding a hotel in walking distance from the conference center. It was also cheap. Totally win-win! Unfortunately I didn't notice that the highway is running exactly between my hotel and the conference center! In order to cross the highway, I would have to walk 3 kilometers in either direction, cross the highway and walk 3 kilometers back....... The money I used on taxis already, would easily have gotten me a better hotel, closer to the conference!
Well.... I guess it's just another stroke of life's wisdom for me.
Vældig sjovt - og jeg var ret glad for, at jeg havde set ham....
Her er dejligt i Orlando. Jeg gad virkelig godt tage en ferie her engang. Måske kombineret med noget andet, for en hel uges turistgejl bliver nu nok for meget. Selv for mig!
For the opening reception, we were welcomed like this. Just inside the door was a man, dressed as a bush. He was very busy making a lot of people jump and scream a bit, when he suddenly grabbed their shoulder. Very funny - and I was very happy that I already discovered him!
Orlando is very nice. I would love to take a vacation here some time. Maybe in combination with something else, since I guess that a whole week of pure tourist-stuff would be too much. Even for me!
Jeg ved godt, at jeg har ævlet så meget om wollmeise, men det er nu fantastisk, så mange nuancer der kan være i sådan et "ensfarvet" bundt. Håber, kjolen bliver et hit!
Of course I'm knitting! This will become a "Little sisters dress" in the pinkest of all pink wollmeise-colors. I'm sure it will be finished before the conference is over!
I know I've been babbling about wollmeise, but I just love all the shades in this skein of a "single" color. I hope the dress will be well received!
