Sequim, WA – Pokemon makes friends and enemies

Sequim, pronounced Skwim, is a little town along the the upper coast of the Olympic Peninsula. Known as the “Lavender Capital of North America”, it’s a sleepy little town full of Chinese restaurants and little craft galleries. We were in town to see what it offered, but more so, to walk around and catch some creatures for […]

Bellingham, WA – Schweinhaus Biergarten

The Schweinhaus is celebrating it’s 2 year anniversary. This isn’t the sort of place you have a tasting flight. Everybody was drinking 1 litre mugs. Harold and I probably looked cute with our 0.3 litre glasses, Veltins Pilsner on the left and Everybody’s Logger Lager on the right – both great beers. I belatedly realized Schwein […]

Bellingham, WA – Aslan Brewery

Aslan Brewing Co. is in downtown Bellingham, a block from the Community Food Co-op on the corner of Forest and Magnolia streets. We made it here just 6 minutes before happy hour was over so we put in our food order quickly. They were out of Portbello fries, so we opted for: Waffle Fry Poutine – […]

Bellingham, WA – Kulshan Brewing Company

Coconut Kennys is a local chain of pizza joints with locations in Bellingham, Burlington, Ferndale, and Sedro Woolley. They serve some of the best deep dish pizza I’ve ever tasted. Just a half block from Trader Joe’s, we’ve gone by this place a few thousand times, but never stopped in until today. Boy, were we […]

Athens, Greece – Double decker day 2 couldn’t be more different

When I purchased my ticket for the double decker bus tour, I was wondering if I’d even use the second day. What was I gonna do -the very same circuit all over again? But as it all turned out, the second day, while following the very same route, was the exact opposite of the day before. […]

Argolis, Greece – Corinth, Epidaurus, Nafplion, and Mycenae

The Argolis peninsula separates the Saronic and Argolic Gulfs. It was the seat of power of the Mycenaean empire that ruled Greece from 1600 to 1100 BC. A tour of the region takes us to some of the most important archaeological sites of Greece, including tholos tombs, citadels and ancient theatres. If you’ve read much of my blog, you’ll […]

Santorini, Greece – Touring the Island

Santorini is the one place we picture more than any other when we think of Greece. The towns built up and along the caldera cliffs, with their blue and white buildings, overlooking the gorgeous blue waters. The island of Santorini lies in the southern end of the Aegean Sea, about 200km (120 mi) southeast of […]

Taos, NM – Taos Pueblo and the Rio Grande

Taos Pueblo is a Unesco World Heritage site located 3 miles northeast of the old town. Established in the late 13th and early 14th centuries, the pueblos are considered to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited communities in the United States. It was a beautiful sunny, warm, breezy day when we drove out there. The tall […]

Taos, NM – Old Town and Rancho de Taos, NM

My overall impression of Taos is that it’s a more hippie-ish version of Santa Fe. It’s a little rougher, a little wilder, and there are a lot of older RVs that move around from one parking lot to another. I’m not being negative – for me, these are all pluses. Add in creativity, amazing food, culture […]

Moab, UT – Arches National Park

As soon as our wheels were back on the trailer, we screeched out of the lot in Wendover, and were racing across the salt flats for the very, very last time of our lives. It was raining and dark by the time we were half way to Salt Lake City, the highway was poorly lit, […]
