with my current life theme being new beginnings....i've been trying some new things.
when it comes to restaurants (not that i would call McDonalds a restaurant), i'm known for always ordering the same thing. i have a fear that if i order something new it won't be as good as my usual choice and i will leave feeling disappointed and unsatisfied.
over the weekend i had my first ever McDonalds Big Mac experience.
i’ve always been a Cheeseburger with no pickle kind of a girl but i wanted to know what all the hype was about.
so i headed to my nearest golden arches and popped my Big Mac cherry.
i’d have to say i was hugely disappointed, the famous Big Mac sauce that everyone raves about was such a let down, it was tangy and not nearly creamy enough for my taste buds.
i won’t be ordering it again, i’ll just stick to my Cheeseburger with no pickle from now on…although i did notice the Double Cheeseburger on the menu, maybe i will upgrade to this instead...

before heading overseas there are a few places i would like to see, places that are so close to home it's almost shameful that i've never seen them.
with a long weekend and a few extra days, what better to do than take a road trip to the winterless north, or in my case last weekend, a very wintery Northland. with a Spaceship called Spartan we took off on a long weekend jaunt.
