Day 3: Starting Snowboard Lessons

I woke up around 8 in the morning, got dressed in proper attire, and ate breakfast. We left our hotel, and my dad dropped my mom and me off at Beaver Creek, and we went to rent our skis, and my snowboard gear. We then went to the school area, and my mom dropped me off. I was moved several times, to different instructors, as my C-turns and S-turns were semi-inconstant. I finally ended up with Kiel(pronounced kyle) I was finally able to sort of, “recall” the turns from last year. I was still a little rough, because it was my first day back after a year. I was still a 3+ like last year.

After eating dinner, my dad and I left our room and went to the eighth floor where the game room was. There were old school arcade games; bar games like pool, table tennis, and foosball; and several games like claw machines, and other gimicky games.

Review: Pho 20 – 3 Stars

Pho 20 is located on 47 E. Beaver Creek Blvd Avon, CO 81620. To start off, the service was average. Not over the top, nor bad. We ordered Vegetarian Spring Rolls, the Thai Ice Tea Boba(with ice), P2 – Pho with raw beef, P5 – Pho with Shrimp, and P12 – Well done flank & brisket. The Spring rolls, were just right, except the wrap was sticky, and very hard to chew. The Thai Ice Tea with boba was most likely the worst, as the Thai Ice tea portion was way too sweet and had too little milk in it. The boba was too soaked, and not the pearly, squishy texture of the expectancy, some of the bobas were hard, and some were the opposite and were way too easy to bite through. The Pho was not per say authentic, but was most likely made of chicken broth. We gave a 15% tip.

I would not recommend this, but it is not horrible, or bad.

Day 1: Colorado

We flew to Atlanta at 5:10am, I slept during the majority of the flight, and when we arrived, I was still exhausted, and I slept for three hours, and we got crepes over near our gate at the airport. We got in the plane. We had a woman sitting next to us, so we moved to a empty row, as there was many empty seats. I slept the majority of this flight, waking up 46 minutes before arrival. I listened to my favorite artist, Ariana Grande, as we arrived here at the Eagle Vail, Colorado airport. My mom, and I went to the baggage claim area to pick up our bags. Some bags came out in a very single file line fashion and then the baggage belt stopped. We then regrouped with my father. He then went to his baggage area, picked up his bags and brought them over. About 15 minutes passed and we found our bags. My dad went to pick up the keys to our rental car, and then we finally jumped in the car and traveled to our hotel, The Sheraton. We checked in and took our bags up to our room. Our room was a suite room, it had a bathtub in the bedroom, a living area, a kitchen, and a large bathroom. The bathroom had a seperate shower and had a door leading to the toilet. The porch had a gas barbecue, and has two chairs. The room was comfy. We then went to eat at Pho 20, went grocery shopping, and came back to the hotel. We are now at the hotel. We may leave on the bus for Beaver Creek and ice skate. We are planning on using the barbecue outside for steak.
