I took a few days off from work last week to visit the lovely city of New Orleans. The city was magical – and so many different things all at once, it is so hard to describe! Old, mixed in with the new. Lively and yet, slow paced. Elegant and hip. What an amazing few days I had having my fill of crawfish, oysters, live jazz and sun on my skin!!
I love to travel. Since moving back to Canada and settling back into real ‘grown-up’ life, my life has been much more grounded… as in ‘no flying’ kind of grounded. But when I do get to go away for a few days, I always come back feeling more inspired. The change in environment and routine is always welcomed and sometimes – that is what’s necessary to help me refresh and recharge. Seeing and experiencing new things always inspires new perspectives in me – and what’s more valuable in life than growth?
I can’t wait to write more about my trip and to share the marketing ideas that the trip inspired! I have started a new section on the site dedicated to the advertising and marketing I’ve seen during my travels. A marketing nerd is a marketing nerd anywhere and when I travel, I find that I am especially sensitive to all the advertising that I see! Check out the section above under “Around the World”. Stay tuned for more!
