Freedom, to me, is about letting your imagination flow and setting dreams that sound like they'll be really cool memorable experiences. Control, in this case, is a huge part of that freedom. For traveling, knowing the destination and the constraints are a part of a responsible set of planning ...

After being a part of Jason Womack's Get Momentum, I feel motivated and informed on how to evaluate my goals and get them done in a timely manner.

I had a short 3-day visit in Whistler staying in Whistler village and jam packing the days with hikes, ziplining, ATV tours, and little day trips nearby.

Introduction
Clemens Wan is an Electrical Engineering Master's and Bachelors graduate from Cooper Union.  He currently has been bitten by the travel bug and feels the need to explore his career choices through backpacking while researching at various Universities in Japan and Germany.  

He keeps a blog of these travels (seelemonsonline.wordpress.com) and tries to use these experiences to find the career that will suit him best.  The bulk of his research has been involved with artificial intelligence applications to robotics, but his main interests within these new cultural environments involves learning new languages, new customs, and finding new hobbies.  With a constant and persistent search for happiness, he maintains productivity while trying to stray from any particular routine.  

The working world scares him to death, but not because he's not qualified - every interest just seems to fight for his attention like a child with ADHD in a room full of shiny objects.  He feels like a jack of all trades, but a master in none and it's scary that he must make sacrfices to become an expert in a particular field.  

The more he learns about the world, the less he feels like he knows, and despite the obvious downward spiral towards realizing his insignificance, this seems to be a motivation more than a discouragement.  

Hopefully, he will find a place to call home and just be happy with his contributions towards the community he influences - whether it involves immediate family members and friends, or a large social network of random followers and acquaintences, there will be a group that will miss him.

To be honest, just talk to your bartender. Ask for his or her name. Make small talk. Tell them what you like. Peter was awesome and made just the right drinks for us. I prefer stirred and his choices of bourbon mixes made my tastebuds happy. Definitely come by and be ready to indulge. Weekday 6-7pm happy hour.

What a lovely find! Great as a dating spot. Super simple chirashi-based (sashimi over rice bowl) menu. I highly recommend the three amigos. There's a deceivingly large amount of food, but worth every penny. It's a little strange that the kitchen closes at 8:30pm, but the bar stays open until 1am. There's a cute piano in the corner, which I assume gets very lively at night.

This is a must visit if you're bike riding in red hook. Marquita gave us the most thorough hour wine tasting we have ever had. We got there around 11 and was one of their first Saturday clients. There's a lot of rich history with the winery and hurricane Sandy, but the new place looks very vintage and open. It's a Beautiful hour experience and I'm sure to visit again.

Food is top notch and authentic Indian. I loved the saag paneer with an incredible taste from a few strips of fresh garlic adding a very nice pickling flavor and depth with the huge chunks of paneer. If I lived near here, I'd have it at least once a week. The chicken biriyani is also delicious, but to be honest, everything is spot on. After their 6 month remodeling and renovations, the new space looks beautiful and much more spacious for their high demand. Cant wait to come visit and try more dishes!

Perfect for riding a bike in redhook and stopping here for a quick lunch. I personally loved the Alaskan crab roll and the raw snow crab claws. I think if I were to go again, I'd go all in and get some full Steamed feast. There's plenty of seating room and tons of hot sauce to choose from. I suggest sitting on the roof seating if you don't mind the breeze.

I'm a huge fan of the brunch here. It's got a gorgeous space that fits large groups, and the menu is pretty unique. Their $15 bottomless brunch is very dangerous, but a great way to be unproductive for the rest of Sunday. I came here for dinner and loved the shareable pizzas and fried calamari. I think 1 appetizer, 1 pizza, and 2 entrées share well with 4 people family style. They also have la Rossa moretti on tap, which is my favorite.
