50 Shades Freed

They released a teaser for the new 50 Shades movie. Will you see it next year? I haven’t seen any of them, nor have I read the books. Although I did try with the first one. I got about halfway through…and then read the word ‘sensual’ twice in the same sentence, separated by only a few words.

‘Christian was so sensual when he sensually caressed me.’ Or something like that.

Mrs. Grey will see me now? I’m good, thanks though.

The Drive with Mark Brennae

I’ve returned from my solo cross Canada motorcycle ride and I think the best word to describe the adventure would be ‘wowza’. That’s a word. If I were to elaborate it would be, ‘the best time of my life.’

I stayed with strangers along the way; fellow bikers I reached out to on Instagram over the last several months. I’d roll up to their house or our meeting place and shake their hand for the first time right then and there. I was on the road for just over 3 weeks and stayed with 18 strangers between Victoria and St. John’s, NL.

Considering all the variables that went into this adventure, it all went off without a hitch! I’m so thankful for the experiences and memories I gained through putting myself out there and just staying open. My main takeaways: people are amazing and Canada is gorgeous. Also my clothes are disgusting and my dog is the sweetest. I’ve posted tons of pictures and stories on my IG (@imbrittanyking).

Meantime, here’s my ‘just-arrived-in-Newfoundland’ interview from last week with Mark Brennae of CFAX 1070.

 

Meet Matt MacLeod

What words do you say the most?

This is Matt and his most used words are ‘hyped’, ‘amped’, ‘super stoked’ and ‘ahhhhh yeeeee!’ That should give you an idea about what kind of guy Matt is. He was one of the first people I told about my cross Canada motorcycle ride…he was also one of the first people who offered to help. Together we wrote a first draft of my proposal to get businesses on board. Seven months later we met up for some photos. I was riding my bike and Matt was leaning out the car window (as Brian drove), taking pictures featuring brands like Blundstone, Biltwell and Om Boys.

Matt’s a super talented photographer and I’m so thankful for his support and enthusiasm. I’m also hyped/amped/super stoked to see what he comes up with next. Ahhhhh yeeeee!

Goodbye call to Nonna

When you’ve been planning something for almost a year it’s crazy when it’s actually time to do it.

Big day tomorrow – I start my solo cross Canada motorcycle ride from Victoria, BC to St. John’s NL.  I’ll be staying with strangers along the way, fellow bikers I’ve connected with through Instagram. It’s going to be a celebration of our beautiful country, the awesome Canadian motorcycle community and the magic that happens when you take a risk and ask a stranger to go for a ride (and also to sleep on their couch).

So much has gone into the planning of this ride…there’s just one last thing to do…call Nonna to say goodbye. And also pack. Ughhh…still have to do that.
