What are the last 3 best public places you have been to? how did you find the place? why did you finally go?
1Mateo: en marchant devant, un collègue me l'a recommendé en 2012. Plusieurs mois avant d'y aller. J'étais à cours de restaurants à essayer et dans ma tête. Aussi le rappelle parce que je le voyais toujours quand j'allais à Boxcar.Asian restaurant that I first find on Yelp: good menu, good price, good reviews, close-by.Charlot restaurant. Friends chose the place because it was close to one of them's workplace, I met them there.Starbuck coffee shop: I have been here lots of time, I went there to go. Remembered about that place.Devil tower: native American come and comtemplate, very spiritual, offering, remind what lives must have been before people came from Europe. I want to be spiritual, close to Earth. My wife wanted to go there, let's go there and we did the road trip. I googled it. I have seen in movie. Something near by, outdoors.RMNP Loch Vale: doing a lot of hiking in RMNP and do as many areas as I could. Found it from a map I bought at REI a few years ago.
2Reuben's: suggéré par les collèguesOAthletic gym, mentioned by a friend who is a member and saw professional player on Snapchat mentioning it. Less than a week after, I thought about it, looked it up, looked at the price and decided to go.Le Balajo dancefloor. I got out of a restaurant with friends and saw it. I used to visit quite often as a younger self and haven't been back for awhile. I asked friends if they wanted to go and they did so we went.Different Starbucks: same as previous, just doing something differentMardi Gras: always wanted to see it and seeing it during Fat Tuesday. Andrea planned that trip, when to expedia.com.Sawtooth Idaho: part of trip to Northwest where I wanted to bunch of places I have never been. The sawtooth. That whole experience was awesome. I heard of it and looking for places in the way was meant to be. The destination was the journey.
3Pizzaeria Locale: suggéré par les collèguesTout Suite coffee/bakery: found through Yelp and noticed $2 macaroon Tuesday deal, randomly remembered and looked it up and went. Movie theater. I have some free time, so sometimes instead of going to cafés with friends, we go to the movie theater. Location and show times are the biggest criteria.Glassdoor to pick a window for mothership, googled for the place and sent out quotes and only one who responded.DrupalCon Portland: first time hanging out with friends/cowokers, like their vibe, from PortlandiaOregon along the hood river stayed at a campground which was OK. Best part was in the morning and there was a trail from the campground and I went west and found other falls and I was the only person there. I mean to camp somewhere else but I didn't feel safe, found that campground before I came from the maps I got from the hotel.

What are 3 places you'd like to travel to? and why?
1India but not sure where. I was told the culture, the history, the people are magnificent. I particulary want to visit temples. Before going, I'd like to get in tough with travel agencies et do some research. Also, we really need a local guide if we decide to go.Paris, never been. I want to go to Champs Elysées
2Argentina for argentinian tango and the beautiful waterfalls. I want to go to Buenos Aires to find the best dancers and professors.Japan, never been, I want to see gardens
3South of France because of the nice weather and people. I remember wanting to go to Cassis because of its creeks but not other specific places.Australia, never been, Sydney, Melbourne and the coastine
Have you planned any of those travels/visits above? why?
Non, parce que je plannifie pas en avance et j'ai d'autres choses de prévus comme voyage en Europe l'année prochaine et je ne plannifie pas plus d'une année à l'avance.Because I have no passport. Never get around traveling/planning?Ireland planned, coming up to make sure we have all the arrangememts, where to stay. It is really hard to determine how the rental car works, insurance and extra. I haven't planned Europe because of the budget and haven't done that, same thing in New Zealand.No, I haven't. Read a book on Antartica but thought I should read something else. I really should go to Hawai, but my partner had his honeymoon there. Not New Zealand because I am working now and I don't have the travel bug. I can see myself go to New Zealand on myself in a year plus I'd rather visit family than traveling.
When is the last time somebody recommended a place of interest to you? What was it? What did you do about it?
Restaurant Coréen au Colorado, une collègue de NY, j'ai du le mettre en bookmark sur Google Map? ... Non ben je ne sais pas mais si je fais une recherche rapide, ça s'appelle DaeJee à Arvada. J'ai cherché Korean restaurant and quand j'ai vu le nom, je m'en suis rappellé. Je n'y suis pas allé parce que c'est loin et en dehors de la bulle. J'ai envie d'y aller mais pas à ce point. Si je suis dans le coin, j'aimerai y aller. C'est pas comme si il n'y avait pas de a bonne bouffe à côté.Places to visit when I go to LA, I have them on my Notes app (screenshot is available). I am worried that some people recommend things I don't like.A month ago, a friend who lives in Haiti recommended me visiting.Toronto, three weeks ago, just remember and did nothing about it.San Diego, CA by friend about a year ago, remembered the conversation, used to write notes but stop doing that.A friend suggested Comanche Pass to hike, northern part of RMNP, posted a photo without telling where it is which is why I remembered.
When is the last time you were reading something and found a place you were interested going to?
Aucune idée ... si il y avait vraiment quelque chose de bien, je pense que je m'en rappellerai. Je découver les choses le plus par bouche à oreille qu'autre chose.On Facebook, I found a cool rooftop that I noted in on my phone (notes or sms). When a family member wanted to go out, there came the opportunity to go.A book by John Greeson that took place in Italy, nothing specific but remember the name of the small town?Read about stuff in Ireland, Guiness beer. I plan to go there.Recommended by friends, somewhere in Vietnam, a bay in the ocean with interesting rock formation. Top of my head.
Have you ever read an article about a cool place and wanted to go there? Did you actuall go there?
Your plans for the weekend fell through but you still want to go get out, how do you decide where to go?
Le truc plus facile à organizer, c'est pas très loin, ça va être bien. Un truc facile parce que je ne suis pas du genre à organiser. Je ne sors pas beaucoup surtout si il n'y a pas des gens que je connais qui y vont en même temps. Je ne suis pas du genre à sortir tout seul.Pop on my bike and go to the some place I know.Think about it, interesting places, think about local places hiking, brewery, on my mind first and then looking online.I evaluate what I feel like doing, taking my kayak, going to bike, decide where to go, go out of the house, decide on a direction, I would sometimes pick something I want to go. I am mostly biking where I know. Use maps or go online or probably do both.
If friend/family member was visiting/moving your hometown, how would you share your favorite spots with them?
J'irai avec eu, je leur dis.With a cocktail, take them out. I send them some links on Google search, either text or email them, I don't do Snapchat.I would take them to a local beer spot. Message them through text, email and figure out what they would like more. Google maps, Zillow.Rack my brains. A coworker probably doesn't want to hike as much as I do. Tried to remember places in the LA area away from people who want to be on tv.I need to remember what I did when I was there. I verbally share those spots. He just listened.
