Adventure and Avocado

Last weekend I managed to coax AP out of the apartment so we could hit up a travel expo in Santa Clara. We scored a bunch of free swag and had a blast coming up with an insanely long travel wish list.

This is my new life motto.  

Every country had their own booth where they lured people in with candy and free pens and then tried to convince you to book a three week stay in their homeland. Some were more creative than others...

I wanted AP to take a pic with one of the Taiwan mascots, but he refused as he did not want to be embarrassed.  However, once he spotted the Segway test driving booth, he pushed past the other children to get in line for a try.

Not embarrassing at all, right?

I take way classier pictures, clearly.

Rick Steves was there! I wanted an autograph but there were about 200 middle aged women elbowing each other for a chance to get near him, so I took a pass.

After we'd seen all there was to see, we stopped off at Aqui Cali-Mex for swirls and lunch.  These swirls are killer- they recommend you stick to no more than two but I can barely finish one.  Don't want to fall asleep in the train home and end up in the city!

Mmm, guacamole.  They have gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options marked on their menu. The food's not authentic, but it keeps the swirls from knocking you senseless.  My dish had beans, tofu and potatoes, nice and hearty, and quite tasty!

I've recently recommitted to being a vegan after a three year sabatical, and I feel so comfortable and relieved with my herbivorous decision.  Check out my Tumblr for more vegan food porn! And husky pics, natch.
