Jacksonville, Florida: I hardly knew ye. And that’s ok.

A whirlwind business trip filled with layovers, bad airport food and little to no sleep left me rather dazed as I made my way through northern Florida.

The saving grace was the weather. I’ll never say a bad thing about sunny and 25° in February.

The thing that did put me off were the big box store complexes. Everything outside of the downtown city core seemed to made up of giant parking lots and retailers. The only thing that reminded me that I wasn’t in some Canadian suburb were the palm trees. And the distinct lack of snow.

But I might just be bitter because I didn’t have the time to use that hotel pool.
