If you haven’t attended a social media conference before, they are exciting, fun, informative, and also a little dizzying because of how fast paced everything is. There is so much information you will want to pack in as well as so many things to see and do, and people to chat with. I absolutely love attending events like the ShesConnected Conference.
I flew in the night before the conference, in time to have dinner with the other #SCCTO Ambassadors as well as the Canadian Beef team and #loveCDNbeef Ambassadors.
My flight with Porter Airlines was an enjoyable one, as always. To date, my flight experiences with Porter have always been stellar. The cabin crew and the service are first rate. What I love the most is that the flight is from Sudbury to Toronto is only 45 minutes. By the time I finish my drink, it’s time to land! If you haven’t tried the Terra chips they serve on the flight, you simply have to try them next time!
Terra Chips – wholesome gourmet snack made with a mix of exotic vegetables like taro, yuca, batata, parsnip, sweet potato, etc. Mmmm…delicious!
Getting to Toronto with Porter was a breeze. Getting to the hotel from the airport took longer than it took to fly to Toronto! Instead of taking the FREE shuttle service, I took a taxi. BIG mistake. Before we even left the parking lot, I had racked up an $8.00 taxi fee…and we hadn’t even moved! Then we got stuck in traffic. Next time I need to make sure that A) I don’t arrive when it’s rush hour and B) I take the shuttle service. That’s fine. Lesson learned.
Checking in at The Renaissance Hotel, I was greeted by my friend, @Gingermommy. I was so happy that she was the first face I saw! The hotel service was great, the staff was welcoming and our room was very inviting. Okay, anything is inviting when you don’t have toys, clothes, storybooks, and the chaos of home for a few nights. Not that I didn’t miss my family, but having a bed to myself and no mess to pick up was heavenly.
Dinner was at Lone Star Texas Grill, which happens to be where my younger brother moonlights. It was funny chatting to the staff and finding out they all know my brother.
When dining with Canadian Beef, one orders…BEEF! The burrito was SO good!
