You know when you meet someone and you instantly know that you are going to be friends? This is not a story of this type of scenario. Instead, this is a coworker, turned peer, turned friend over the course of seven years.
Two very similar people with the same work ethic bonded over late night office work -- often we were the last two in the office and would force each other to leave. The work life balance between us was terrible, but we really started to get to know each other through this. Fast forward to this week, and she is flying to see me! Piggybacking off a work trip to Switzerland, we are spending two whole days conquering castles and eating a whole lot of food!
What did we see/do/experience?
Such a nice trip -- forced us both to take time off. We are still helping with each other's work life balance :)
