Tampa, FL

My annual training for work was in sunny Tampa, FL. I had never been and to be honest, I really wasn't sure what there was to do there. Since it was a work trip, my exploration time was limited, but I did manage to get out and see some sights. 

We had an event scheduled at the Florida Aquarium on Monday night. It was a really fun event with dinner tables set up between the exhibits.

Tuesday night, I made a quick trip to Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City. I tried the famous 1905 Salad and Black Bean soup. Super delicious!

The rest of my trip was not so fun. I'll suffice it to say that it was one of the worst 36 hours of my life thanks to the conference lunch. *shudder* We left Wednesday afternoon and got home late in the evening. I am super happy to be home and feeling almost normal again.

Tampa was a great city for a conference. Transportation around the area was super easy on the trolleys and I was able to run along the beautiful waterfront in the morning. The conference wasn't half bad either :) I would have loved to have made it to the Dali Museum, but they have kind of horrible hours. Oh well, next time!

We're (hopefully) leaving for Central America on Saturday. Cross your fingers for us!
