Chihuly Gardens was surprisingly one of my favorite places in Seattle. I admit that flowery glass sculptures sounded like a cheesy idea at first, but walking through the museum and seeing all the beautiful spectrum of colors and glass pieces was quite an amazing experience.  The grandeur of those glass sculptures are pretty neat to see in person.

We arrived in Seattle late at night and after stuffing ourselves completely full with sushi, we were able to enjoy this awesome view from the rooftop of our Airbnb pad. The rest of our stay in Seattle consisted of exploring the neighborhoods and enjoying as much food as we could possibly stuff ourselves with, and that definitely meant lots of sushi, fresh seafood and locally brewed beers.  I didn’t realize how Seattle had so many […]

The Musuem of Anthropology in Vancouver had this large room where there are shelves and shelves and cabinets full of fascinating objects and relics from different cultures for guests to explore and admire. I was really captivated by all the beautiful and scary masks on display in the glass shelves. The colors and textures and details in these works of art are so amazing.

I met up with my friends in Vancouver for the second part of my trip. We took an early bike tour right away on our first morning in the city. The air was crisp, the weather more chilly than we anticipated, and the scenery was breathtaking. We managed to bike around the majority of the city, taking in all the beautiful glass skylines, mountain views and trekked through a part of the forest wilderness. I […]

          I’ve always managed to pass by or drive through the West Coast on previous travels, so a trip to a few bucket list cities was much needed, especially if it meant that I was able to get away from the sweltering Texas heat for a week. First stop was a quick visit to L.A. where my friend Sandra had been living for the past year or so. The L.A. scene is a plethora of […]
