The Winds of Change

Posted by jujuintexas on April 11, 2010

Hello Hello Everyone!

Well, what is there to say? It’s been almost 2 months (Whaaat?) that I haven’t post any entry to this blog, so bear with me if I can’t shorten all I have to say in a readable post… For the fiercest and most adventurous of you, you are welcome to follow this thread until the very last word!

Let’s start with Spring Break. And OH, what a time I had with my dear friends Truls and Jorrit. The three of us embarked on a journey that will remain at least memorable, if not unforgettable. On a beautiful, sunny morning in Austin, we flew over to San Francisco, where the sun had just decided to take a break and where huge thunderstorms were taking place.

At that very moment, you can imagine our faces (We left Texas’ weather for THIS?). But for the next three days, we were blessed with great weather, temperature, and astonishing experiences. Among them, being caught on tape for the next Axe Commercial (those who want to hear the story will have to inquire!haha), eating our first True American breakfast in the States, Parading for Saint Patrick’s Day, Seeing the Golden Gate and Alcatraz, eat the most fantastic burger of all times… There are so many things I want to say that I can barely all lay them down here. But if there’s one word to sum up all that went on there, it would be OUTSTANDING. It truly was.

The next step of our trip was “Fabulous” Las Vegas. And yes, we decided to book a room at the Bellagio! We entered the famous hotel with a gasp of wonder, and excitement. It was as beautiful as we expected it to be. So amazing that we almost wanted to contemplate the room and never touch the perfect set-up that was waiting for us. Followed 2 nights that were magical! On the first, we pulled an all-nighter and went from casino to casino, where the atmosphere of gambling took on us. Of course, as most people in Vegas, Jorrit and me lost what we bet, but we certainly had fun, and that’s the most important. Second night? The Show “Jersey Boys” (brilliant, by the way) and “Lavo”, the famous Palazio nightclub. This was a night to remember.

Did I mention M&M’s world? Truls and I were drawn like little kids to these huge pipes that displayed our favorite candy. No need to say that my jeans were tighter when I came back…haha.

Don't pretend you don't want to taste it!

The incredible trip doesn’t stop here though : I came back to Austin for a day, but flew back to New York to meet my lovely girlfriend. We had a blast in the big Apple. It’s insane how you can feel the city’s heart beating. Like a ticking clock, the streets “will make you feel brand new”, like the song tells it! As we say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so here it is!

NYC Love!

After this, Helena joined me for 2 fantastic weeks in Austin. Gym, tanning, working, studying, partying… We had a pretty busy schedule and before we knew it, she already had to leave back to France. But she repumped my batteries and I gave me a dose of love I can sustain on for the next couple months I’m staying here!

Ever since she left, a lot of studying and working out – again. Richard, a canadian friend of mine, came to visit me yesterday night, and we had an AMAZING night. All of our international group met downtown to what was probably one of the greatest nights in Austin so far! Simply loved it.

I’m getting tired and this post is getting too long : The only thing I want to conclude on, is the title of this article : You will know why in the next episode… with evidence! haha.

See you very soon
