I feel like I’m drowning in puzzles. And I love it.
Though the Escape Room International Championship occurred after Red Bull Discovery Lab, I think it’s more fitting to talk about it first. There’s so much more to unpack about the Discovery Lab that I might have to break out a full series of writeups about.
I can’t believe we’re already on the latter half of our trip to Cancun! This trip has been a little different from any other I’ve ever done, but still very enjoyable.
For the first time in about four years, I’m going on a vacation in which it’s possible I might not complete an escape room. Horrifying, I know, but there’s a lot to look forward to.
