Indy in Toronto get ready!

If you like speed, get ready!

 

Last year I had the opportunity to go to the Honda Indy Toronto and watch Castroneves’ last Toronto Indy race.

Helio Castroneves, the Brazilian driver at Team Penske, has long been considered one of the “larger than life” personalities in the Verizon IndyCar Series. He collects 47 poles, 29 races victories including 3 Indianapolis 500.

Also, another Brazilian has made history here. Andre Ribeiro achieved the fastest pole speed on the streets of Toronto with an average of 110.616 miles per hour in 1996.

Celebrate You

Can you see yourself working for 45 years with the same company?

What if this company would be Disney?

In October of 2018, I got a call from a friend inviting me to join him in his 25th Disney Celebration.

Once a year, Disney invites their Cast Members who are celebrating 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 years with the company and one guest to go to a special party at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. They close the park and reopen it only for the party with food, drinks, characters, attractions, and best of all, special fireworks.

I was honored and thrilled!

I wanted to capture it all and at the same time enjoy every second.

For me, the best experience was to watch the magic in the air. Who would imagine that after working for so many years there, these adults still have the Disney Magic so alive! They were in line to take photographs with characters, they rode the Cinderella’s Carousel with the princess itself, they cried during the fireworks (I did too).

Walt Disney once said:

“You can dream, create, design the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.”
