I recently finished my second year of University and had planned to go to make a quick trip to Edmonton with my girlfriend and her mom to get away and relax for a bit. No set plans were made in advance but to just hang out, shop lots and eat lots.
I woke up at around 4:30 this morning to begin getting ready to leave for 5:00, which extended to 5:30 because of the royal wedding. When we got into the city, we began with shopping at the South Edmonton Common to do some outlet shopping. We made stops at places such as Gap, Banana Republic, Nike, Adidas and Bath and Body Works just to name a few stores we visited. We also stopped at an Italian Coffee shop in the area, where I enjoyed a Birra Moretti. After I ate my very first authentic East Indian meal, which I must say was a good experience. I was especially fond of the meal because of the amount of spices, rice (typical) and food available.
After dinner we had a quick stop at West Edmonton Mall where we were able to quickly find some graduation heels for the girlfriend and some snacks at the TnT Supermarket. Other than that, I'm here at the Mayfield just explaining my day and watching Sports Center. Great first day, tomorrow should be even more fun!
Love the North,
