Intense does not even begin to describe today.
I have been looking forward to today for quite some time. Today was going to be my adventure in Edmonton with my friend Desi from Trent. Desi has since moved out to Edmonton and now shares her amazing home with her two children, and for the night… me. I only had the chance to meet her daughter, but it is safe to say that they are super good people. Michelle (Desi’s daughter) works at this amazing restaurant that we went to called Joey’s. Apparently they may be expanding so look out East Coast.
On that note, it is important to note that where in Ontario every town first has a Tim Horton’s then other things, out west A&W is the “hip and trendy” fast-food location. This has made getting my daily intake of tea difficult…. but doable.
Anyways so today Desi and I went on this amazing Helicopter ride over the city. I can legitimately say that I have seen ALL of Edmonton. Close to the end of the ride I started to feel very woozy and was very close to loosing my cool. Instead I just sweat a lot….
After that we went to see the West Edmonton Mall, which is amazing. Waterpark, mini-put, ice rink, sea animals, arcade, games, and the other cool things that regular malls have, all in one place….
I then got to do a Primetime Interview with CTV Edmonton LIVE! It was intense, but they were super nice and the interview went REALLY well. I haven’t been able to see it yet, but the link is here.
As if the day couldn’t get better, Desi takes me for a ride on her hog… aka her motorcycle. It was so cool!
What an awesome day! Tomorrow on to Saskatoon. I’m stoked to be going, but I wish I could spend WAY more time here. Desi is one of the most inspiring people I have met!
