One of the first things I did after coming back from my maternity leave, was to attend Dreamforce ’16. And this post is about this amazing event. However I would like to write something different from others. First of all, don’t expect a technical entry where I praise all Salesforce news. They were really good this year, but DF is more than a technical event. It’s networking, it’s enjoy the place, the sun. It’s comeback with ideas to explore at home and keep feelings of these sort time.
So, what are you going to read here? My experience but with small sentences. Although my smartphone was ready to write tweets, I did not have time for it. It was write or listen, so I decide to pay attention and make pics.
So, What I did not tweet?
Day 1 – 4th of October
06:00 – Start my #DF16 trip. @Bilbao airport. Long queue for checking. Will I miss my flight? It’s a bit delayed … so far so good.
09:30 – At Schiphol airport. Close to lose my connection to San Francisco!! So lets do some exercise, run along Amsterdam airport!! I get it. Sit down and #relax for the next 11 hours.

13:00 – Where is my luggage? This suitcase is similar to mine but it is not mine!! Sorry Mrs García, not sure where your belongings are 😦 😦 😦 #luggagelost #noclotheswithme
14:00 – Arrive to the hotel with a new San Francisco T-shirt bought at the airport and looking forward to having a shower. Sorry Mrs García, your room is not available yet. You would have to wait. What?? 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 #anythingelse?
