After a long day of waiting, traveling, walking, eating and with VMworld 2014 around the corner, I’ve finally made it to my hotel bed getting ready for some sleep. But before I do, I would like to briefly share my travel and course of the day.
As the ticker on my blog indicates, in less then 4 weeks VMworld will be the center of attention in San Francisco! Whether you are new to VMworld or have been here before, there are always new things to discover, new people to meet and of course an amazing experience to be there!
The best event of the year is approaching again! If it didn’t cross your mind yet: VMworld 2014 is around the corner already and you should hurry up because the early bird discount will only last until the 10th of June.
My first post from San Francisco and I have some catching up to do. Since I haven’t been doing nothing once the plane touched down in Frisco. So let’s get my story going!
After a long day I have finally arrived in ‘Frisco’ yesterday around 5PM, while at home the clock was already pointing at 2AM. What do you mean, back to the past?
I have to mention the flight by British Airways which was a pleasure to experience. An entertainment system with new movies (watched Iron Man 3!), free drinks and 3 meals to make our travel as comfy as possible. Seen the fact that our flight endured 10 hours and 30 minutes 🙂
To celebrate our arrival, my colleague and me grabbed a burger at the local diner and enjoyed some local beers before leaving to the hotel and catch a good night sleep. At least, if the beds were a little bit more comfy:
This morning we had breakfast at 8AM and went for the Moscone centre to pick up our badges and backpack. I made some photos of the Partner Exchange which was still being built up but already looked very awesome. Oh, and I shook hands with Alan Renouf, the PowerCLI Guru and creator of the vCheck script.
A little bit off-topic, but like the second picture of this post suggested, we visited Alcatraz this afternoon. A cool experience and people who haven’t been there should really check it out. The audio tour was even available in Dutch!
While on the boat and island (or like they say here; the rock) I made some cool pictures I want to share with you.
One last thing, check out the URL below to find the blog of my colleague Eelco de Boer.
Thanks for reading!
