I am generally always excited to go on any work trip. To my grown-up self, any deviation from the norm at the office is perfectly wonderful to me. No matter the weight of the task at hand upon landing: I have always enjoyed a good ol' fashioned business trip.
Minus one thing: the picture situation. Long before Facebook, Instagram, TwitPic, etc. I have taken pictures of essentially everything I do (and I do mean everrrrything). So when I'm on an out-of-state work excursion, I still want to document the world as I see it and capture anything that represents local culture. However; I just can't do it. In the financial industry, I've discovered that most scenarios leave little time for recreational photo-ogging and juvenile antics. And Coworkers are different than friends-I can't be shoving my camera in their faces because they happen to be standing under a gorgeous maple tree. So essentially, my trip to Napa is shamefully being shown to you through mirror shots.

So I'm fairly certain it's illegal to go to Napa and not take a picture with the wine I enjoyed but, girl's gotta eat! Fun blogging pictures are secondary to my career. Just another thing to remind the college kids of ... (Subtext: stay there forever).
Have you spent any time in Napa?
