When I started this blog, the intention behind naming it Planes to Plates was:
Planes: My job in Aviation as an Aircraft Technician
Plates: My love for cooking and experimenting with food.
But as time has passed by, Planes to plates has started to develop a new meaning I guess.
Planes: My love for travel and my experiences during my travels
Plates: My love for cooking and experimenting with food AND… trying new cuisines and dishes from around the world.
Recently, in a blog, Adventurous Kate I happened to read that you need to choose a blog name that will grow with you. Planes to Plates is such a dynamic name and we (P2P team) couldn’t have picked a more perfect name for our blog.
So today’s post, as is probably very evident from the title itself, is a travel post; the memoirs of my recent vacation.
Since we explored quite a bit, I would have to split this into 3 posts; Canada, California and Arizona. I will list details of restaurants, places we visited, interesting things to do and basically anything that you may find useful to plan your holiday if you decide to visit the same places.
And of course, there’ll be lots of pictures. Don’t forget to check out my Instagram page @planestoplates; where I have put up pictures of some of the best moments from our trip.
So getting right into it then, this year’s vacation was an absolute blast. Spent quality time, away from work, with my husband; extremely engaging and a fun filled time with my bestie and her husband in Canada, road tripped around California and Arizona, basked in the beauty of nature, relished some local delicacies; basically just relaxed and had a great time. Isn’t that what a vacation is all about!
I’ll start off this Vacation series by talking about the first and probably my favorite of all the places; Calgary in Alberta, Canada. OH! My Goodness!, that place defines the word ‘beautiful’. The air, so fresh; the place, so serene and not forgetting the great weather which we were so fortunate to experience.
Anyway, I’ll just stick to the highlights of the trip because I don’t want to bore you’ll with minute details.
