Mission #2: Final Report

It has been an overwhelming ride this month, with the film festival I volunteer for finishing up on the 12th September and the remainder of the month allowing me to find some spare time again! This meant my weekends were open for adventures and missions once again. As I embarked on my second theme, my outdoors mission,…

Mission #2: Grub Food Van

Not wanting to pass the opportunity to try more outdoor eateries, I squeezed in another spot on the weekend: Grub Food Van.

Despite her caution, I had faith in the 5% chance…

Mission #2: QV Hideaway

As mentioned in a recent post, one place that I thought would be great for this mission is the temporary QV Hideaway popup. It’s a bit unique in that it is undercover, but placed in QV Square in the open. The interior has an outdoor, spring sort of feel, sharing the essence of my mission…
