Hello everyone and a warm hearted greetings from Seattle, Washington.
The weather here is a bit on the cool side, it’s definitely grey out and we are expecting rain...go figure.
We have been making good headway on this road trip and made our way up through Northern California and through all of Oregon all day Wednesday.
It was all of 30 degrees this morning when I woke up in Vancouver, Washington. Luckily I packed a nice warm sweater.
Sorry I don’t really have any pictures to share with you today. Although it’s a beautiful part of the country, it’s not really showing off all it’s beauty with this terrible grey sky filter today. Hopefully I’ll see something snap worthy that actually makes for a nice photo and share it with ya’ll tomorrow.
And although I realize that I am traveling as we speak (or as I type), I wanted to also share other exciting travel news with you about upcoming travel adventures!
Am I addicted to travel - why yes I am.
Do I feed my addiction - why yes I do!!
The way I see it is that there are much worse things to be addicted to!
Plus... I get to take you guys around the world with me, as well as show you a world of adventure that’s in your own backyard.
As for last night, we had a lovely visit with Javier (Cosette's boyfriend) and ordered some very tasty dishes...the only 2 problems were that:
1. This particular restaurant could not make any of their soups vegan - they all had fish sauce in them.
2. Well as I already know that Thai food can be quite spicy and there in a scale of heat from 1-10...I thought I was playing it safe to go with a 2. The other guys went with a 3 on that spice scale.
Ocha Thai Kitchen and Bar
Well I’m not sure if the server was annoyed with me for all of my vegan questions and ordering, but my #2 was so super spicy I couldn’t even believe that these guys who ordered a #3 weren’t completely suffering. Since they were acting like the spice wasn’t at all an issue I decided to try a small taste of Dave’s vegan dish and guess what...it wasn’t even close to as HOT as my #2. Although it was flavorful it was not a surprise that I couldn’t finish my meal.
We do hope that you keep following along!
Tag us and share with your likeminded friends.
Signing off for the day,
A big Friday hello!
Lots of rain and wind over here and I'm sitting quite comfortably in my master bedroom loft writing my blog today!
I've literally been in touch with Tanya all day yesterday during her drive from SoCal up to Fairfield, in northern California and into the week hours of the night.
Of course we chatted non-stop about TC related business, but we also just had some very hearty belly laughs over silly stuff! Before I knew it, the time was 2am!! Needless to say, I was fairly exhausted this morning when I had to get up and drive Kelsey to school.
The good thing about me, is that once I'm up - I'm up for good. So, as soon as I got myself in the car (on this very wet and rainy dark day) to start the ride to Kelsey's school, I was pretty much wide awake.
And speaking of driving, Tanya continued her driving yesterday and made it into the great state of Washington, driving through Vancouver, Chahalis, Olympia, Tacoma, and Bellevue.
Her final destination was Seattle, where she stopped for dinner. Check out her YUMMY photos!!
One of the towns that Tanya stopped off along the way was Chehalis, Washington. My dear Cuz told me that it was just adorable and chock-filled with coffee houses, where she, in fact, grabbed herself some Joe!
A bit of Trivia about how Coffee has come to be called "Joe"
According to The Roasterie.com, there are three popular theories:
The second theory seems to be the one that is embraced more, but click the link and have a short read - the other two theories are quite interesting!
And speaking of Chehalis - here are FIVE fun facts about this Washington city:
Here's to a spectacular weekend,
