So the Vamp and I have been quite busy the last couple weeks. Not only did he come to Canada with me to visit his other Poken Buddies, but the Vamp also decided he needed a break from him normal every day routine of sleeping and watching TV. Because I agreed that he would need a vacation, I decided to bring him along with me to visit some Clients in Europe,,,plus he could use a bit of culture.
Anyways, the Vamp and I almost missed our flights home from Canada which would have meant we would have missed our flights to London. Not only do we owe Air Canada a big thank you but also to customs and security for not yelling when he forgot his passport…then again, do the undead still have to carry one?
One of the first things that the Vamp and I did in London was head over to one of London’s most famous landmarks, the London Eye. Not only is the London Eye a Poken friendly ride, but they also don’t charge an adult ticket price for Poken to ride the London Eye.
After walking around the bridge area and the London Eye, the Vamp and I headed to Big Ben and the Palace before meeting with a couple friends in Soho for drinks that evening.
Although we met a few people who are Poken fans in London England, none of them had brought theirs out, including the people from Quidco and a couple other Affiliate companies.
Overall London is an extremely pro Poken city and the Vamp fell in love with it.
After London, the Vamp and I got on a plane to visit our buddies in Malmo Sweden.
Not only do we love the Swedes for their innovation and absolutely amazing hospitality, but neither the Vamp or myself had ever actually been to Sweden before and although he wanted to go all batty and fly there himself, I did convince him to fly Scandinavian Airlines and show up to Sweden with me.
To make a long story short, Sweden completely met all of our expectations. We did everything from eat actual Swedish Meatballs and Ligonberries to Swedish Fish, it is amazing how the Swedes love Gummy Candies and Chocolates,,,,yet another reason I love them and their Country. Sweden was amazing and so was their food. Although they had never heard of Poken before, they instantly went online and started searching for local Poken Retailers in Sweden because this could easily become a large trend in a country that thrives on innovation, internet and being interactive with everyone.
This last picture of the Vamp traveling his homeland Europe is in front of this huge building outside of the capital city of Denmark Copenhagen.
Not only did we storm this city like there was no tomorrow, but we both fell in love.
The Vamp loved the old world style and the cobblestone streets and I loved the culture, the food and the people of Denmark. The Scandinavians have to be some of the most friendly and intelligent people in the world and for a country that values traditions, they also embrace technology and keep everything up to and beyond the times compared to many other Countries.
It was an amazing trip and we got a lot accomplished with our Clients in Europe, however after we have been traveling for over 20 hours to get home, it is time for a nap. Please feel free to post your pictures of you and your Poken traveling below.
