Last week I took a trip to Richmond Virginia to attend accreditation training for work. My coworker and I were there for 3 nights. I was slightly excited for a number of reasons like getting to fly, going way east, oh and of course the training :). I did get to travel with a coworker who I like, so that was nice having someone along. I would have been fine by myself since I am not one of those people that always have to be around others. I was really nervous about the airport experience having to go through security and having to switch planes to get where we were going. Lucky my travel buddy has flown a lot more that me so that was comforting. I really do enjoy flying, after all I got to look at this on our way from Tulsa to Dallas. We were somewhere over Texas by time I took this, I think. Yay for 6am flights!
Proof I was there and not just running around having fun at the company's expense.
We took a walk down and saw the James river and through the nearby canals. Of course their little boat rides were closed.
These cobble stones were brought over from England by boat and just dropped off many many years ago to pave the streets.
There is some awesome architecture there too. Lots of history.
We laughed a lot about this sign. We were thinking it was a silly way to say "You are downtown" or "You're downtown" but it was actually University of Richmond Downtown.
Oh man did we eat some good food too...
Hummus and pita bread along with veggies and sun dried kalamata olives for lunch one day at our hotels restaurant.
Our last night we went to a place called The Hard Shell. Mahi mahi with baby spinach and mango salsa. Mmmm.
