    San Diego - Casa de Natasha

    November 9, 2019 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 16 °C

    Our final destination south, Natasha! A best friend of Meagan's and PhD comrad. Funny enough, Natasha lives with another Natasha who also received her PhD at UVic (same group Mat worked for). We immediately caught up over pizza and beer at a local shop called Regents Pizzeria. We scooted around by bird (electric scooters) to a Speakeasy pub where we enjoyed delicious cocktails. The next day was a little rough so we chilled at Torrey Pines beach. That night we feasted on a delicious BBQ that Mat prepared for us with cupcakes for dessert. One of Mat's dreams came true the following day: surfing in Californian water. We spent a few hours on the water. Mat was a true surfer, standing up multiple times. Meagan on the other hand was tossed around like kelp. The three of us refueled with the best tacos in Pacific Beach called the Fish Shop. The rest of the time was spent in the hot tub, it truly felt like a vacation.Read more

    Thanksgiving/ Black Friday Shopping

    November 23, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    Nachdem wir im Hotel eingecheckt haben, gingen wir noch in eine Shopping Mall. Der Feiertag Thanksgiving wird bei den Amerikanern sehr groß gefeiert, indem die ganze Familie zum Truthahnessen eingeladen wird. Danach geht es abends zum Shoppen, wo es aufgrund des Tages danach "Black Friday" sehr große Rabatte gibt. Die meisten Stores haben schon an Thanksgiving von 18 bis 24 Uhr geöffnet und bis zu 50% auf alles. Deshalb wurde natürlich einiges geshoppt.Read more
