Florida July 2011 - Chapter 2
Florida July 2011 - Chapter 1
You may recall from Chapter 1 that I am going to Florida and want to I see my friends while I’m there. I spoke with my two besties about it to see if we could work something out. One goes to school in Gainesville and the other in Tallahassee. That’s driving distance! Kinda?
The result is not ideal. My Tallahassee friend will be there for the summer so that’s not a problem, but my Gainesville friend is in West Palm for the summer. “Well can’t you come up for a weekend? PLEASE?!” I didn’t think it was too much to ask. After all I’m coming from Toronto. Surely she could travel less than halfway to meet me.
She has to come up for a wedding a week or two later so it is HIGHLY unlikely that she’ll have the money to take the bus up twice, or that her employer will give her so much time off.
Now, I have to decide how to make this trip work for everyone.
One of my friends is brilliant and has been invited to Tampa, Florida for a conference. So of course I am going! Even though I know nothing about sustainable engineering, I will never pass up an opportunity to go home to the Sunshine State.
Now I just have to make all my friends from West Palm get within driving distance of Tampa… Stay tuned to find out how I do it!
