The last time I travelled out of Toronto other
than to visit my sister and nephew at Thunderbay, ON was on October 2011.
When I was still in operations at Air Canada, I used to work 4 days (48
hours) and had 4 days off so I had lots of time to travel. When I got
promoted to Corporate Resource, I went back to the normal Mon-Fri schedule
so I only had weekends off.
and I went to Milwaukee on Sept 15, 2012, I was very excited to see another
place. I thought there was nothing to see in Milwaukee but it was a
very interesting city that produced hundreds of beer variety which was like
a mini-Belgium. We took the bus from the airport to downtown via Green
Line of Milwaukee bus system.
Peter and I stayed at Marriott hotel which
was at the city center by the riverfront. It was near
Third Ward which was the
center of fun in the city. Bars and restaurants lined up Third Ward
and we had the chance to taste different types of beer and were priced
cheap. Even a bottle of Corona was only US$5 which was way below the
average of US$6-7.
The following day, we walked along the stretch
of the river and visited
Lakefront Brewery. Peter was the one who planned the Milwaukee
trip and booked the brewery tour for only US$7 per person. The tour included
four (4) glasses of free beer and a souvenir glass at the end. It was
the best beer brewery tour that I had with all the freebies included.
We went to the Michigan lake shoreline and
visited the Art Museum which was also a
famous wedding area for the locals. While checking out the museum, I
saw one of the grooms who we had the chance to party with the night before
in one of the bars at Third Ward. His friends gave him a bachelor's party
and what a coincidence that Peter and I saw him again on his actual wedding
After our walk along the shoreline, we took
the flight back to Toronto.
