Today was a long day of driving through Kansas and there wasn't much to stop off and see. Tom spotted a cricket at one of the rest stops. I love the sound they make at night, it's so loud hear in ...

The Center Of The Universe
We woke up in Spokane, Washington this morning. It's amazing that, even though we managed to visit all of states the last time we were hear, we're not doubling up on any sites or crossing or old pa...

Northern Exposure
It was our last day in Seattle with Bruce and we couldn't leave the city without having at least one coffee from Starbucks. Bruce is such a loyal customer that he even has a special gold card.

Twin Peaks
Our first stop this morning was the Jimi Hendrix memorial, which was in a cemetery near our motel. It was covered in kisses and someone had left some lavender chocolates for him. Afterwards we dr...

Seattle
We touched down in Seattle this morning after a long night of travelling and my Uncle Bruce picked us up from the airport. He'd travelled down from his home in Vancouver to spend a few days with us...

Pearl Harbour
We woke up really early this morning and drove to Pearl Harbour to get tickets for the memorial which we would go to later in the day. We then went for breakfast at Andy's where I had an acai bowl...

The Last Frontier
The yurt was so cosy that we didn't want to get out of bed when we woke up this morning, but we had to pack our suitcases as it was our last day in Alaska. We picked up an Alaskan salmon quesadill...

It was another lovely day today, so we had breakfast in bed and then went for a swim on the deck. It was a little strange swimming with a view of the ocean. We even spotted a couple of dolphins ju...

Fairwell Fireworks
The fireworks were taking place at the castle last night, as Tom and I were preparing to set off on our trip. My suitcase looked like a menagerie of animal prints by the time I'd finished packing ...
