First time to a restaurant since I think March?! This pandemic had everything shut down and we decided to give it a go once thinks were semi up and normal. Bonefish made you wear your mask while walking to your table then you sit down and can take your mask off. While seated right next to another booth, this mask in restaurants thing is pure political bullshit, what the fuck does it even stop? Stupidest shit ever, that movie Idiocracy coming true! Still good food during the pandemic, glad they retained some quality chefs!
So after getting back from London we found another week off from work in late February and also found some good flights to Amsterdam. We decided to go for it! This first part covers Amsterdam and Vienna, Austria! Stay tuned for Video 2 which will include our first Austrian train ride and journey to Salzburg to visit Mozarts House!
Instead of a long blog post I’ll do my new format and post a video edit of our trip to London & Switzerland! We had an awesome time and is a place that is so surreal you can’t even imagine. It’s like every page it’s a story book fantasy-land and your just driving like woah. It’s a place everyone should go once in there life and it’s not anymore expensive than going to a major hub in a city. Every damn vlogger/youtuber was like “how expensive is Switzerland?!?!” sure you can find a $14 cup of coffee in any damn city, but here prices were normal for the most part for normal things. Go visit!
For as long as I can remember I always remember seeing that one photo of Lake Louise on Banff, it’s a magical photo that gets shared on IG, FB, you name it every year. However this was the frozen part of the year I found some cheap flights to Calgary and decided to take the dive into the winter cold. It was well worth it and a great experience to check out Canada during the Winter months. Also I’ve never been to Calgary so was excited to check it out in the first place.
Getting close to Banff! Makes you feel like your entering a small Boy Scout camp excursion trip. Good vibes everywhere. I also shit you not it smelled like pine like a candle, no joke. Real Deal.
Click read more and come along and check out these wonderful photos of inside downtown Banff and a couple restaurants we grubbed at.
So it’s been a year or so since I’ve been here but it’s still one of the best filet mignons I’ve ever had. I’ve ate filets around the damn globe now and there is something about this Texas restaurant that produces the best fucking filets. I have no idea what it is and I would love to say Corpus Christi doesn’t know what there doing but I am constantly being remided anytime I have a steak elsewhere. If your in the area, trust me… it’s worth it. Also they still have a drink called the Almond Joy that is the best tasting thing ever.
So this is basically the entire reason for the trip, “Hey want to go get drunk at the Food and Wine Festival in Orlando?” I mean who says no. It’s always a damnit let’s go book it kind of situation. So let’s go explore the gluten free side of the Food & Wine Festival. I didn’t document it nearly as hardcore as I usually do but I still put in some effort of photographing food for myself.
Must ride this first because there about to close it down for a full refurbishment! Getting new animatronics as well as layout I believe, must remember the original history!
Here we go! Do you change your lifes outcome every time? Lol.
I’ve never been and always thought it was a kids thing but fuck I was wrong, this thing is LIT. It’s like a trip fest of visuals and effects. I should have known better for Disney, damn. Well I am glad I went and gave us time to knock out Magic Kingdom without having to come back during the day. Also basically no lines for the rides, weather was good, and major crowds were gone! The best part of the trip!
So had to hit up the Nightclub & Bar Show 2019 for work so I’ll keep the bar show posts to a minimal but wanted to document my journey of that week through some photos, check them out on read more. Was a good trip, flew First on United which is always the worst in service, and as usual worst at handling customers with allergies. But it’s where my status is so I always get upgraded!
Got in around 4PM to Vegas, the clouds make it look super dark out.
I’ve never done a “mileage run” before, nor have I heard of it before actually becoming a United Premier Silver member. Basically once you fly a lot on a certain airline you get rewarded if you hit a certain number of miles, qualifying segments and dollars spent per 1 year. Reading that if you don’t hit it within 1 year after the new year comes around you lose all progress, so it would be a shame for me to miss “silver” status and all it’s perks by only $250.
So I decided to book a flight to Toronto for the weekend which ended up in a 4 night trip due to delays of course (classic United). I’ll explain more about Premier Silver status by United laater on. I did all the major tourist things and then some, especially when your gluten free you always know it’s going to lead you off the beaten path to more authentic local spots which is a bonus.
