Since this site went live I've had little to no content that includes a huge aspect of my life, travel.
I like to travel, not like a little, like a lot, like a lot - a lot! It's that thing that brings being to my life, meaning to my existence. I am fortunate enough to share that notion with my partner and my daughter. We have purposefully maneuvered our lives so that all intentions are set on exploring the world!
About two years ago I moved to the Portland, OR area. It was a part of the country I was largely unfamiliar with, well if I'm being honest, I never even gave it much thought. Upon my arrival in the area I was eager to start exploring this side of the country, a big part of that was the city of Vancouver, B.C.
This last winter we planned an amazing trip down the I-5 spanning the majority of the West Coast. When we concluded our trip we began focusing our intentions north. We booked an AirBNB, rental car, and went with the flow.
I like to take things as they are so research was very minimal. I spent an hour or so looking up places to visit and locations on where we could eat. The list wasn't to big nor very informative, but, it was a good a starting point and that was enough to get things in motion.
We stayed in a small studio owned by a British family. The place felt welcoming and was nestled in a small neighborhood with narrowed streets and a french bistro on the corner---WIN!
For the next couple of day we zipped in and out of the city. Enjoying the suspension bridges, riding the ferries, perusing the markets and tasting the local foods. By the end of the trip it felt like a home away from home. A small gem hidden within the mountains.
I am lucky and joyed to have the opportunity to see the world with people I love. Another destination has been marked off, but others get added on.
As the moment all intentions are heading towards THAILAND !
