Picking up hardware in Barcelona and Cannes

VespaI find it strange that what makes us really nervous can also be those things that are the most exciting.

Today those two emotions are colliding big time. I am heading to Barcelona and and have rented a Vespa scooter to navigate around the city and hopefully see some of the amazing buildings that were designed by architect Gaudi.

Just the thought of riding one those in a city with thousands of other scooters is nerve raking enough but I will have to give a thank you speech to a room packed with video producers from some of the top corporations in the world. It will be so cool to represent the amazing creative talents of all the folks at TELUS Studios in achieving this level of recognition at the Stevie Awards Gala.   (We won an award the last couple of years)

BarcelonaAfter Barcelona it’s on to Cannes, France where TELUS Studio won the prestigious Cannes International Corporate Video Award.  As I pack and get ready I have found that there are a few apps that I have been so crucial to help me prepare.


Nice TripTrip Advisor

Tripcase is perfect on my iPhone to keep all my flight info together. It has a great itinerary that links to the travel agent information.

Tripadvisor app has been so great to download all the detail from each of the cities I will be visiting. It shows you where all the great restaurants are and shows you the top 10 things to do if you only have one day in Paris as rated by all the users and people who post reviews. I think for me its going to have to be to rent a Vespa again to bomb around the city.

I plan on sharing another post with updates on my travels. I am so proud of the amazing creative work that TELUS Studios continues to do. I still have to write my speech…
