So this picture below is obviously not me, but I had to find a picture hat describes the experience that I had! So, you see that clear dome with the black speaker in the middle? That was where the music was playing and the whole bed vibrated to the beat of the music. Not only that, but the massage therapist coordinated her movements to the rhythm of the songs. Incredible. Like really, as she was doing it, I couldn't believe it.
As the biology lover that I am, it was cool to explore a botanical house nearby. It was also awesome bringing my wing man/photographer on the trip with me so that we could capture memories of each other. Though, I feel like my adventurous spirit annoyed him at times, but he quickly got over it. I had to drag him on a sea lion tour because, well, I like marine animals! After we got out on the water though, he thought it was cool. No one was going to get in the way of my adventure.
Hard Rock has four eateries and/or bars and I went to all of them, thoroughly enjoying every meal. I think food is a qualifier for me if someone asks if I had a good time somewhere. Like if I'm at a cool event, but the food was just alright, then in my mind the event was just alright. So when I say that my time at Hard Rock was spectacular, just imagine how good the food was.
Our favorite meal was with NOBU without a doubt. I was worried because my wing man, Joshua, had never really had sushi before outside of California rolls, where I on the other hand have made sushi a part of my regular diet. I was definitely prepared and willing to eat all of his sushi, however (unfortunately for my stomach), he loved everything!
Let me set the scene for NOBU. You know those fancy sushi places that you see in your downtown area that you only imagine super successful people go to? The ones with the heavy cast-iron looking red doors and atmospheric lighting? Well, that's NOBU, except it is super approachable AND in the lobby of your hotel!
Now, I know that some of you guys are scrolling through this post and saying to yourself, "this girl is just bragging about her vacation." Well you know what? You are right. I am.
I think as entrepreneurs we forget that we can actually brag on and appreciate everything that we have accomplished throughout the year. Whether it is big or small, a lot of us are in this mind trap that whatever we have accomplished is not enough and we only focus on our next goal. I am super guilty of that. This year, I have had some amazing experiences that I have let myself really enjoy because I'm always looking to the next goal. This trip changed all that.
Treating myself to a relaxing time during my trip to Hard Rock Hotel San Diego was like a high-five to myself and everything that I've accomplished. It was the big "woo-sah" that I needed to close out my year and come back refreshed so that I can rock out my plans for this new year. I'm proud to say that the only work that I did during this trip was on a rooftop pool...boo-yah!
