I left the UK on my Workcation. Flew from Leeds Bradford Airport, over to Amsterdam then caught a connecting flight to Fort Worth, Texas. Wow, it was a long journey, so pleased it’s a direct flight from Orlando when I head home.
So what’s this about, well, I fancied a mini tour of the US. I really want to get out there into the community, meet other folk, and generally be more involved. Oh, and Texas is apparently awesome at BBQ.
I’ll be meeting up with some other WPMU DEV folk too, Michael Bissett aka Captain Question is the first fella, he works for me and hails from Wisconsin. Aaron, our CTO, he lives in Dallas. Michelle, she works for me and hails from Indiana and does a fine job in her new role as QA; we’ll meet her in Las Vegas.
Here’s a photo of Captain Question, we were eating at resturant called Smoke – 901 Fort Worth Ave, Dallas, TX.
So, here’s the plan. WordCamp Dallas #WCDFW, we then head over to WordCamp Vegas #WCLV. From there, we’ll take a road trip down through Phoenix (See Josh, he’s our director of the Keepin’ it Fresh Division), Austin (manages the Edublogs and CampusPress services), New Orleans (because they apparently have lots of tasty food!), and finally on to WordCamp Tampa.
Will I get to head over to Orlando to meet Mickey and Mini, that’s definitely on the cards!
If people want to meet up, have a chat, share a work location, I’m happy too!
During the tour, I’ll no doubt add a ton of photos like the following one of a bicycle outside of Smoke.
I do like sharing images of my food, I know that annoys some people, tough! 😉
That’s smores, if you don’t know or have never had that, which I hadn’t, it’s so darn tasty! Think cookie dough, really sweet, and very moreish. We had that at the Lockheart Smokehouse – 400 W Davis St, Dallas, TX 75208
I’ll either be uploading to my twitter @ https://twitter.com/timothykbowers or my Instagram @ https://instagram.com/timothybowers/
Today, we’re chilling out at Aaron’s house, he’s our lead CTO at WPMU DEV. We met up earlier at Starbucks, then went for a little light lunch at La Madeleine Country French Café – 8319 Preston Rd, Dallas, TX 75225. Didn’t photo the smoked turkey and bacon sandwich, but I remembered the desert! I had an Apple Crème Danish along with a mango ice tea.
Anyway, Aaron is cooking and those burgers are about done, so ta ta for now!
