The trend continues, having my final blog post always delayed. Because returning home and getting back into the rhythms of real life and work take over. So here now, finally, are my musings from my 2 days in Athens. The massive ferry boat from Paros to Athens was a trip. Total insanity. Happily Aimee’s skills Keep reading

(I’m typing this on one of the flights home, from Istanbul to SFO, and I can already tell I’m in prime danger of rambling high faluting language, more so even than normal. You have been warned. Ha). Guys! We did such a good job picking places to go. It was so overwhelming, with over 100 Keep reading

(I have no idea why some photos are uploading upside down and sideways. Maybe my sister can edit that for me, as I can’t figure it out on mobile. In any case, dear reader, you should still get the idea) Oia, in Santorini, is beautiful. Full of iconic views and sweeping Vistas, and long winding Keep reading

Exploring Chania and Heraklion. When we last left out intrepid travelers, they were going to head out for dinner on Sat night. Feeling confident, having used the combined wisdom of Google maps and TripAdvisor, there was a lovely local Taverna only a half mile away, serving amazing local Cretan dishes at reasonable prices. Once found, Keep reading

So, end of last year, my pal Aimee says she wants to take an epic trip for her 40th. I’m all in as a travel “plus 1,” always. Then two of her other pals are coming too. Woo-hoo! And as there’s been a lot of trials and tribulations in my life these last 3 months, Keep reading

Woo-hoo for creating new traditions. After last year’s overnight on Orcas Island, we’ve decided the three of us should do an annual overnight. This year, the Bavarian Wonderland that is Leavenworth. I’m always so impressed that this tiny dying logging town was able to reinvent itself into a super popular tourist destination by going ALL Keep reading

My goodness, what a trip. Typing this on the long flight back home. Tired but satisfied, with loads of memories made. Pilot informs us we’ll face lots of turbulence over the Great Lakes, but otherwise smooth sailing. While I appreciate the info, as this isn’t an international flight with screens in the seatbacks in front Keep reading

So last June I found myself with yet another Alaska Air $99┬ácompanion fare coupon about to expire. You get one annually with their mileage card, but I don’t take a domestic flight annually, so can’t always use them. Or I’ve used them for flights to CA (thereby only saving $50). So I was wishing I Keep reading

Man, I’ve been to Cannon Beach a bunch in the last few years. I’m not complaining. I love this place. Our folks were spending a few weeks in a cabin in September when my mom called, wondering when my sister Reagan and I were coming down to visit. This was NOT a thing we’d planned. Keep reading

I found myself the winner/purchaser of 5 nights in a cabin in Skykomish, Washington. I was the opening bid at a charity auction with no real intention of winning the prize, just liked getting the ball rolling on this silent item. But as the auction end date neared and it became apparent nobody else was Keep reading
