Dann started bugging me about getting a new passport so we could go to Vancouver while we were still technically living in Denver. He got to travel there last year on tour with Loud Harp and Josh Garrels, and he wanted me to get to see what a beautiful place it is. We spent this past weekend in Vancouver and Victoria and had the best time.
Traveling with Dann is one of my favorite things. He's really good at staying calm and problem solving and using something he called "the Fibonacci trick" to do miles to kilometers calculations in his head while driving. This trip made me even more excited to see him become a dad. He's going to be so good at it.
We visited Stanley Park, ate our first real Canadian poutine, rode the ferry (twice!), stayed at the Fairmont Empress, toured Craigdarroch Castle, and didn't have access to data on our mobile devices for most of the weekend, so we talked to each other and laughed a LOT.
I'm killing this Seattle Bucket List so far. Who's coming to my Macklemore dance party at the Space Needle??
*Also! Today marks six months since I arrived in Seattle, so I figured it was about time I start telling you about some of my favorite spots here. It's a short list right now, but I'm confident it will grow over time.
