We've both been pretty busy working (which is why this blog has been a little slow of late) but this last weekend we headed up to Whistler for Karen's work Christmas show. We caught the Greyhound bus up there which proved to be quite a bit less seedy than our experience of the US Greyhound service. For Tom it was very exciting due to the fact that he had never visited an alpine region before.
After a 2 hour journey, we arrived in Whistler and for Tom at least, the concept of cold was redefined.
The accommodation and the dinner were both at the Fairmont (very nice resort) and it was all paid for by Asentus which made it even more enjoyable. The two days gave us a great chance to look around the mountain. A quarter-hour gondola ride down the mountain with a group of 8 five year old ski-school kids and their instructor was particularly entertaining.
Oh and it was Tom's birthday last Friday (23rd) and he had to work but we went out to some Buddhist restaurant for lunch and after work we went to an almost uncomfortably uber cool warehouse party for some beers.
