Well after a year or so, I finally made it out of Southern California. I made the long trek across the USA to my new home, Chicago. I love it here! It has only been a little over a week but I can see how this city draws and keeps people here.
got away for the weekend up to my buddies cabin in Big Bear. Good time to get away from it all and enjoy the outdors
Hit San Francisco, did some job interviews, played supermodel, hung with crew and ate food that you could only dream of.
“People are overlooked for a variety of biased reasons and perceived flaws: age, appearance, personality.”
We will see….
Headed up to Big Bear for the weekend to celebrate good friend, Yukio Kishimotos big 29. Always a great time to get to spend quality time with the crew and not worry about life for a couple days.
A couple pics from my getaway to the Sequoia National Forest. Did the Nelson Trail which was about 8.5 – 9 miles with the summit at around 7500 ft above sea level. Read a bunch of interviews and a couple of the A Book Apart series. Drank some beers with my extreme mountain biking neighbors… more or less pure relaxation until I got home and found out that i had caught a cold. If anyone needs a little R&R the lower part of the campground is open till about the middle of Nov.
If all goes as planned this week, I will be sitting in front of a campfire on thursday for a much deserved getaway. Solitude in the forest always helps clear ones mind.
The Igloo Village in Kakslauttanen, Finland is like the Rolls-Royce of ice hotels. Each igloo is equipped with glass that allows you to gaze at the northern lights and millions of stars, all while relaxing comfortably in your warm room.
The glass igloo is a a marvel of modern technology, which is based on a groundbreaking idea and years of research and development. Built from special thermal glass, the view stays clear even when the temperature outside drops to under -30°C. Every igloo is equipped with a toilet and luxury beds and, every evening, a hot sauna and a refreshing ice hole await you.
In addition to the glass igloos, the resort features snow igloos, a snow restaurant, an ice gallery with ice sculptures, and a snow chapel for those we want to tie the knot. In total there are 20 glass igloos and 60 beds in the snow igloos, and the snow restaurant provides seating for 50-150 people. Igloo Village starts its season each year between December and January, depending on the weather conditions, and stays open until the end of April.
