From Seattle we rented a car and drove to Vancouver. I’m excited, as I’ve never been to Vancouver. The ride was beautiful, though we Were then in a border crossing line for over an hour….

Love Vancouver, lots of places to walk, water everywhere. Lots of unique neighborhoods.Vancouver is a coastal seaport city in Canada, located in the lower mainland region of British Columbia.


We got here for the last two nights of Chinese New Year… Happy New Year everyone.

On The Road ~ Santiago Chile

Welcome to Santiago, our first stop on this Road Trip through South America. For many of you who know us, you know that we have done road trips sometimes by car… this trip has us traveling on all kinds of transportation.

Welcome to Hotel Santiago, a beautiful hotel with beautiful rooms and restaurants. Not to mention the beautifully helpful staff.


Our room with amazing windows.


The lobby is incredible and we got to see this tree being put together. They haven’t lit it yet, maybe we will get to see it on the way back here.
