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 […]

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. […]

It was a block long and was part of a larger cultural festival called Viva fest. The first block of Viva fest was all Sikh. We were amazed to not only see Sikh rappers performing, but also a Sikh motorcycle gang. This […]

Tucson

We chose Refugio this time, since my parents had just been there the month before and had enjoyed it. When reserving the camp site, I had […]

Adios Phoenix! So long and thanks for the ladder!

The most beautiful place in the world

The Monterey Peninsula is my favorite place in the world. With the rocky shores thriving with sea life: otters, dolphins, sea lions, elephant seals, whales, cormorants and other birds, the fields and fields of fruit and vegetables, all the homes, from more modest beach side cottages to sprawling mansions looking out over the waves crashing […]

Our virgin trip!

If the trailer’s rockin’, don’t come knockin’! – Billy Joe Shaver Friday, September 13, 2013 This weekend we took the new trailer down to Bellingham, WA. It was to be both a learning and outfitting trip, figuring out what we need for the trailer and purchasing the items that will be needed along the way. […]
