Denver is trending. It was probably always great but only now have people started to take notice. And when I say people, I mean me, because I’m usually a few years behind the trends. I get it now though. The sun is always shining, the mountains are all around you, and there’s a distinct weirdness everywhere you look. Kind of like Austin or Portland. They are so weird that they don’t need to fight for the slogan “Make Denver Weird”. All this made for a great week-long visit to the Mile High City.
Some things cannot be written about. Some things cannot be expressed in a way that does them justice. Some things are just too wonderful to document. It has been two months since I returned from the most wonderful trip of my life and I have writer’s block! How is that possible? I have so many things to say, that I have nothing to say.
One of the huge perks about my job is that I get to work from home. It’s the reason Tommy and I have been able to move around as we please these last few years. However, there are both advantages and disadvantages to the lifestyle.
- Dress Code = Pajamas
- Commute = 3 seconds from bed to desk (slight traffic as puppies are running around)
- Morning Prep time = ranges from 2 – 15 minutes depending on if I have a video conference. (at some point we should talk about the enormous injustice of women having to wear makeup to look presentable)
- Disturbances are minimal – ever need to just GET SHIT DONE without people walking by and talking to you every 5 minutes?
- Office = Anywhere with internet!!! This is the real inspiration for the post because I like to sit in beautiful coffee shops. At the bottom of the post are a few of my favorites in Austin, TX.
The Quest continues at Rosewood Mayakoba in the Mayan Riviera. I have a few characteristics to add to the ideal of the perfect beach. It has bicycles. The carefree simplicity of riding a bicycle calls back to a bygone age. Riding a bike is presumably the alternative to walking when you want to get somewhere faster. The irony about biking while on holiday is that by definition, you don’t need to be anywhere. And you definitely don’t need to be anywhere faster. Which makes the riding of the bike completely and totally without motivation. Which is why it is my next characteristic for the perfect beach resort.
