day 1641 – party cabin

after a pretty intense first night at the party cabin, the second day at baker was laid back one. woke up to have brunch, did grocery shopping, picked up parcels, sat in the hot tub and chilled around the cabin. the dinner of the century cook-off turned out with great success. the shot that we had while cooking hit me pretty hard since i hadn’t eaten since breakfast. my cabin baked salmon, stuffed mushrooms and mixed a fruit kale salad. my favourite by far was the salmon seaweed tartar with our baked salmon coming in second. it was only tame before the party started up again after dinner. i’m pooped and slightly buzzed after the party and couldn’t wait to pass out in my bunk while the drink fest started rounding up at 4am

day 1640 – vdl retreat 

still wasn’t packed an hour before midnight, but i am now so baker here i come. had a good look at my cozy cabin and claimed the bunk that i wanted to sleep in. the annual weekend getaway with the many vdl execs i work with throughout the season is always a hit. debated whether i should bring my ski equipment, but figured i’d save that for when i’m back in town. in the meantime, i’ll just savour the moment to chill and lay low while i can. one of the few weekends i can fully remove myself from all kinds of work
