Went to Memphis for the weekend to check out the Zoo, wanted to check on the animals, big cats. Of course a trip to Memphis isn’t complete without a stop at IKEA.
I still rank Memphis Zoo one of the top 5 Zoo’s in the country and I’ve been to over 55 Zoo’s in the world, it’s a damn good Zoo. Best time to go would be around Spring when everything is in bloom, however for a slower persons count hit it up during the winter. Also grubbed at Flight, Ikea, and Paulettes pictured above, all great spots.
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 hitting up Calgary and Banff these next couple days and the first stop is of course the Calgary Zoo! This place was epic, total winter wonderland and every animal was out! Check out the quick 2 minute video I made on the experience instead of some photos. I’d recommend going to the Calgary Zoo during a winter wonderland event for sure, 0 people and it’s beautiful. Also they have gluten free bread, gluten free desserts, and a variety of other gluten free menu items. We flew United 737 from Houston, Texas.
Used my Sony A7III 4K. Tomorrow heading to Banff, that should be super super dope.
So instead of making a super long post I’ll do a video photo vlog of my journey to Toronto below. I went last year during the Christmas holidays and it was beautiful and a pretty dope spot. This time around it wasn’t as magical but still overall Toronto as a city is great and I’d prob go there everyday If I lived next door! Check out my captures below.
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 haven’t had time to update weekly right now so I will be posting all the adventures I’ve had during the months of June through September. Las Vegas, Dallas, Little Rock, and some gluten free fun. So check out the photos below.
The Pantry, Little Rock, AR
Grubbing again at the German eatery called The Pantry, its located in Little Rock, AR. Its pretty decent, nothing major but still a good meal. House Made Bratwurst, Iron Skillet Potatoes, Sauerkraut 3/5.
Also the Filet dish from Oceans in LR, pretty good, but nothing like the Republic of Texas.
First trip to Europe was a success and great adventures were had. Explored a lot of things I never though I’d see in this decade and got to visit another Disneyland Park! Now I’m planning on going back already, the only thing that delayed me was the 7 or 8 hour journey! Now I know to just buy an inflatable seat cushion off Amazon next time and I’m good to go. Premium Economy is the way to go, first class for $6000 for only 7 hour flight just doesn’t make sense to me, but I understand if you got it, spend it. Let’s roll out.
Our noble steed back to London Heathrow from Paris, An Airbus A319. British Airways was legit, almost like Southwest Airlines hospitality.
The Paris airport was actually dope on the inside, this was like a kids room while waiting for the terminal. Totally rad! Rude gate agents and shitty incoming airport, but outgoing = legit.
So on the day before we flew back home we adventured to the famous Louvre Museum which was pretty awesome. There was however a bunch of negatives, it was super hot, sweaty hot in that place lol, also after about being there for an hour it filled up to Disney World New Years Eve style packed. It was insane about the amount of people there. It was un-enjoyable and we planned on spending hours there, instead we hung out for about an hour literally. It was that packed and hot in the place we bailed. The things you don’t read online about the Louvre, also the 100,000 people in line to see the Mona Lisa, just because it got stolen once and a shitty painting if you ask me. There are a lot more interesting things there. Anyways lets start off walking to this amazing pastry shop that was gluten free (of course it didn’t open on time) it’s Paris! They do whatever the fuck they want!
L’église de la Madeleine (French pronunciation: [leɡliːz də la madəlɛn], Madeleine Church; more formally, L’église Sainte-Marie-Madeleine; less formally, just La Madeleine) is a Roman Catholic church occupying a commanding position in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. The Madeleine Church was designed in its present form as a temple to the glory of Napoleon’s army. To its south lies the Place de la Concorde, to the east is the Place Vendôme, and to the west Saint-Augustin, Paris.
