For the second year Automattic held its annual meetup in Park City, Utah. The weather was great most of the time and in one of the breaks we had during the day I ventured out into one of the hills behind the resort and took some pictures. I only brought my 35mm lens which is not suited for scenic photography but still I had to capture the amazing light in that place.
Back in March my team had a meetup in New Orleans. Like always, we had very intense five days of work, inspiring discussions and wonderful meals. New Orleans is somewhere that I always wanted to go since it’s so frequent to see it in tv and movies.
We stayed in a very nice hotel in the French Quarter, which turned out to be an excellent choice since we were close to everything: nice restaurants, the live street music at Jackson Square, the Mississippi, and of course Bourbon street was right around the corner.
I decided not to take my camera which wasn’t such a great decision, New Orleans is a very photogenic city that deserved a lot more than an iPhone lens. Maybe next time!
On my very first Automattic meetup I went to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico for a few days to meet my team, get some projects going and indulge on some delicious food and margaritas!
We stayed at a house in Pedrigal that had a bunch of rooms across three levels, a great living/dinning/kitchen area, a play room and pool that we used extensively.
We took a cruise on a pirate ship (harrr!) that sailed around Cabo so we could enjoy the amazing sunset and a very exquisite pirate show.
During the day we worked and ate at the house in Pedrigal, but at night we hit downtown for some margaritas and delicious Mexican cuisine.
We also went zip linning on Wild Canyon on what looked like the longest and scariest zip lines ever. My heart was pounding on the first one, but by the second zip line I was flying through it! Too bad I have no pictures of it, but I will definitely remember this for a long time.
The week went flying by and I had a great experience in Mexico. Can’t wait for the next meetup!
