4 Comments 10 April 2014

“We’ve met before,” he said “at a Meet Plan Go event in Minneapolis.” I was startled when I received this reply from a random enquiry I made about a photography workshop I was interested in attending in Kauai. It turns out I had indeed met Patrick before. He attended a Meet Plan Go event in [...]
