Happy Birthday 365 things to do in Kitchener Waterloo
It was on July 15th 2010 that I started 365 things to do in Kitchener Waterloo. That was 365 days ago. A lot has happened. It’s been a great year.
Like many things I do, it started as an idea (lets see where this goes) and as a lark (this might be amusing). I happened to be on holiday in Boston when I started 365 things to do in Kitchener Waterloo, (but that’s another story). It was an epiphany, an “ah-ha” moment. I started 365 things to do in Kitchener Waterloo for many reasons:
1) I love living here in Waterloo Region. Growing up, I lived all over Canada and then as a young man I traveled the world, living in Europe and Asia for about 12 years before moving here in 2000. It’s a great place to live. I know. I’ve seen a lot.
2) As a realtor, people ask me questions about what there is to do in town, or where are the best schools, sushi restaurants, swimming pools, bike trails, art galleries, recreation centers, sports clubs…
3) I like to share. I like meeting new people. I like being a connector. Many of the 365 things to do in Kitchener Waterloo have been suggested to me by email or by a verbal or written comment. I’ve met or talked to a lot of great people over the past year.
4) I like to try new things. Posting a daily “event” to 365 things to do in Kitchener Waterloo means visiting places and restaurants I wouldn’t have otherwise. If you’re like most people, you probably don’t search out things to do and places to visit in your own town as often as you could.
In the past year, 365 things to do in Kitchener Waterloo has grown and evolved, starting as a simple facebook page, then developing into a website (thanks Mike Stark), we added maps and video and recently added our sister site 365 things to do in Cambridge (by Amanda Maxwell).
