Since I wrote last KC and I took a jaunt up to Victoria, BC and Seattle. We saw many beautiful places, ate some wonderful food, and of course enjoyed the coffee.
All that said, it was by far the most difficult trip we've taken together. The transportation was a battle, our eating and sleeping schedules were not conducive to feeling well, and other little things added up to drain quite a bit of our travel energy. It was really too bad. We spent so much time trying to get to different places that we saw such a small fraction of the things offered there. And I think most of it could have been avoided if it weren't for a combination of not enough preparation and bad luck/timing.
All the same, we are home. We have good memories, pretty photos and a lot of new travel knowledge that we brought back with us. Our cat is purring (and biting a little), our apartment seems both huge and insanely clean, and we are ready to get back into the swing of things.
Individual trip posts will still be coming soon, with a sunnier outlook I promise! I am excited to share our photos and good experiences with you all, as well as our cautions and laughable moments.
Have you ever had a trip like this? How did you deal with it and learn from it?
