1.10 Work - Travel

Bestest Friend and I are embarking on a new blog project. Each day of the month we will post a picture on a pre-determined theme and write a little something about it. The theme for the tenth day of each month is "Work."

One of the benefits of my job is that a few times a year I get to travel to fun places.  Last weekend I was in Arizona and while I spent most of my waking hours doing work-stuff, I tried to fit in “walking to and from places and looking around” as part of my daily activities.  Hayden Butte Park is a massive feature of downtown Tempe and I found myself riveted by it. 

The desert landscape is just so different from the fields and forests that I am surrounded by here in Wisconsin. The cacti, the warm oranges and reds of the “soil,” and the blue, blue skies with the giant sun beating down constantly reminded me that I was somewhere new and wonderful. The heat almost incapacitated me, though; going from 74 when I left the Milwaukee airport to 104 when I landed in Phoenix sent my body into a sort of heat-induced lethargy that meant I really couldn’t do much more than my actual what I was there for job, my walk back to the hotel, and many, many, many laps in the pool.   

To see what Bestest Friend wrote about the theme of the day, check out her blog, Too Legit To Quit.
