Jake and I recently had the most amazing opportunity to travel to England with his family. The main reason for the trip was to celebrate our dear family friend’s wedding on the Saturday, but we decided to also extend the trip into the week after to do some exploring together. It was a jam-packed, adventurous, exciting, tiring and wonderful experience that I miss dearly already!
Lately, I have been trying my hand at being self employed. Although I am still working at Reid’s Dairy, I am also trying to get into the Public Relations Field as I wait for graduation and while I put feelers out at companies, I am doing some independent work. One of my independent jobs, is for Bay of Quinte Tourism’s upcoming Antiques Trail. So today, I was getting paid to shop for antiques.
After 14 weeks of placement and two jobs, I was ready for a much needed vacation. So my sister, Jake and I packed our bags and headed to Ottawa.
It is no secret that Jake loves his beer and subsequently, I have found a love for the beverage myself. So where do you take a devoted beer lover? Well, to Toronto’s Festival of Beer of course!
Yet another adventure has come and gone this past weekend for myself and Jake, but this time, it was not an area we have ever thought of exploring. We went to Waterloo.
On the weekend of June 4 and 5, I had the opportunity to represent Bay of Quinte Tourism at The Great Canadian Cheese Festival in Picton, Ontario. I had never been to the event before, but was told that I would absolutely love it and boy did I ever! As usual, I dragged Jake with me and started our journey of all things cheese.
As many of you now know, I am completing my PR internship this summer with Bay of Quinte Tourism in Belleville. What you may not know, though, is how awesome this internship is. I have so many opportunities to interact with the community, explore cool places and learn new things every day. One of these amazing opportunities arose today.
