In about a month, I will be heading to Colorado for my first solo business trip.
This both excites me and makes me a tad bit nervous.
I've only been on one business trip before this one, and I was with a co-worker in a city I know very well, New Orleans. This time I will be alone, and in a place I have never been before. My job will be to attend a conference and represent my company to attendees of the conference and fellow exhibitors. No pressure...right? :)
But that's not the part that makes me nervous.
When I was 18 years old I moved to California to be a nanny. By myself. To live with a family I didn’t know. HOLY. MOLY. What in the world was I thinking??? (AND where were my parents?!??!) ;) I was definitely naïve and thought of myself as fearless. And while I think I’m still a little fearless, I am definitely more alert and aware of what’s going on in the world. (Thank you, Criminal Justice major)
But again, that's not the part that makes me nervous.
What I am worried about is driving in the snow. This Southern girl has only seen snow a hand full of times, let alone driven in it! I’ll be flying in to Denver, CO and then driving an hour to my destination. I'm not sure if I'll even have to deal with snow while I'm there, but it definitely makes me nervous.
While my first and most important priority is my job, I will have downtime in the evenings. This will be my first time visiting Colorado and I am excited to explore! I’ve been looking at my 30 Before 30 and would love to knock something off while I’m in CO. I have my eye on “Go horseback riding” but I’m not sure how possible this will be in the evenings.
Have you ever been to Colorado? I’ll be staying in the Fort Collins/Loveland area and would love any recommendations you guys have for restaurants, “must sees”, or anything else!
