Today's adventure is a trip to Victoria, BC on the MV Coho out of Port Angeles, WA. I am excited to finally go over and check out Victoria. I plan on finding some poutine and giving this classic Canadian dish a taste. Cheese curds and gravy over fries - how can you go wrong? And … Continue reading May 4th, 2018

A while back I picked up a jar of something called PB2. It is dried peanut butter. Now before you start going "ewwwww" or laughing or perhaps even thinking I am a bit off (well, maybe two out of three...), it is really pretty good and made a pretty good PB&J. It is not the … Continue reading April 25th, 2018

Vacation is officially over now. Tomorrow is my first day at my new job and it will be interesting. I don't know what all of the duties are that I will have to do yet but I do know some of the things that I will be responsible for. Even though it was not my plan (as … Continue reading April 1st, 2018

Europe – Day 11 – February 4th, 2018: Antwerp, Belgium to Amsterdam, The Netherlands


We got some pretty good rest last night and headed out around 9. When we got to the station it was right on time to catch our first train of the day to go to Amsterdam, and to finish the trip a train change in Rotterdam. We saw a couple of classic windmills yesterday as … Continue reading Europe – Day 11 – February 4th, 2018: Antwerp, Belgium to Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Europe – Day 10 – February 3rd, 2018: Köln, Germany to Antwerp, Belgium


After a delicious bakery breakfast (gonna miss the bakeries!), it’s back on the train to our next stop. Our hotel is situated not only on the open plaza between two cathedrals, out the back door is a shopping center (with the previously mentioned bakeries) located in the train station. Of course we had to go … Continue reading Europe – Day 10 – February 3rd, 2018: Köln, Germany to Antwerp, Belgium

Europe – Day 9 – February 2nd, 2018: Luxembourg to Köln, Germany


Last night we decided that our next destination would be Köln (Cologne), Germany after some recommendations from the girl who helped us yesterday and my friend Kevin, who had been there before. We got up this morning and decided to skip going into central Luxembourg so we could get an earlier train to Germany. We … Continue reading Europe – Day 9 – February 2nd, 2018: Luxembourg to Köln, Germany

Europe – Day 8 – February 1st, 2018: Brussels, Belgium to Luxembourg


Our hotel was in a central area near downtown so the train stops were not very far apart for where we wanted to go. The area we were in was very interesting to see in the daylight. Most of the buildings were not what I expected - modern and minimalist. Function over form. We cut … Continue reading Europe – Day 8 – February 1st, 2018: Brussels, Belgium to Luxembourg
