This summer, our team got to travel to some amazing places. I celebrated my sister’s graduation with a family trip to Europe, while my co-workers got to explore some major destinations in the United States. I thought I’d share our team’s globetrotting experiences with you to hopefully fuel your wanderlust and inspire your next trip. Summer may be coming to an end, but there’s always a new adventure on the horizon.
Elizabeth, our marketing manager, traveled to Florence and Copenhagen in late spring with her husband, Kevin. Here are some photos and anecdotes about their experience.
Since I took French in high school, France held the top of my travel bucket list for the longest time. Paris was of course the first stop on my two-week vacation in Europe. As my family and I where taking a cab into the city, I was overcome with the most magical feeling ever.
Whereas Paris was a place for me to get swept up by grandeur and art, London was a place to see culture and urban life come together. I loved the diverse food and diverse people there, and seeing people relax and enjoy a beer at the many pubs throughout the city. And of course, who doesn’t love hearing English accents everywhere?
The weather in France and the UK was pretty mild and even occasionally overcast, but Spain was blazing with heat the entire time. In Spain, we visited Barcelona and Seville. No one’s a fan of sweat-inducing hot weather, but the endless sun made the cities vibrant and full of culture and flavor.
NEW YORK CITY
Tori, our graphic designer and social media coordinator, had the chance to visit New York City for the first time. She couldn’t help but feel swept off her feet by the Big Apple.
Alex, my co-worker, hung out here in Southern California, messing around at Universal Studios Hollywood and geeking out with his nephews at Comic Con here in San Diego.
After Europe, I got to visit another city on my bucket list, Seattle! While I didn’t have too much time to explore the city since I was exhibiting the Seattle Gift Show, I still got a good taste of what the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
