We opted for the train to go from Vancouver to Seattle. If you have time to spare, I highly recommend business class on a train through the countryside. The views are beautiful and that pink sunset against the ocean and mountains are just amazing. Advertisements
My impression when I left Vancouver was that it is a very romantic city.

If I could recommend a city for a pair of lovers, it would probably be Vancouver. We spent the last night in the city […]
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.

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 […]

Some of my favorite scenery from the aquarium in Chicago. I love the way the glass tank distorts and softens up the image.
We ventured through Wicker Park for a day and browsed a few local shops and boutiques that were on our agenda, and a visit to Reckless Records (High Fidelity anyone?) yielded a Neko Case vinyl I’ve been searching for awhile now. There must have been something about Chicago because we ordered french toast every time we ate breakfast there. My favorite one had to be the orange brioche french toast. They just don’t make them […]
