Port Townsend, WA

Originally named “Port Townshend” for the Marquis of Townshend by Captain George Vancouver in 1792, it was also called the “City of Dreams” with the thought that it would be the largest harbour on the US west coast. Officially settled in 1851, many of the homes and buildings reflect the Victorian times of the city’s […]

Athens, Greece – Double decker bus around Athens and Piraeus

On Thursday, I decided to take the hop-on hop-off bus around Athens and Piraeus. For 18 Euro, I got a 2 day tour around the city with an audio guide.

Bellingham, WA: Cycling Chuckanut Drive and Lake Samish

We drove down to Fairhaven, where we parked, at the top end of Chuckanut, then began our cycle down along one of the most beautiful winding coastal roads in the US. We were definitely cursing the fact we’d forgotten the camera, as the views were breathtaking … and I mean that in a very un-Seinfeld-like […]
