Squamish is a town north of Vancouver, in British Columbia, Canada. It’s at the northern tip of the island-dotted Howe Sound, and surrounded by mountains like the Stawamus Chief, a huge granite monolith. The Sea to Sky Gondola has views of the sound and nearby Shannon Falls, a towering waterfall cascading down a series of cliffs. The Britannia Mine Museum has underground train tours. Bike trails criss-cross the area.Read more
Vallea Lumina is a light show through the mountains of Whistler, this is one of the most amazing and trippiest thing’s you’ll ever do or see in your life. If your in Whistler or near, this is worth the trip to go see. It’s quite the hike at 9PM but it’s worth it to push forward. You get picked up from one of a few locations and they take you on a 15 minute bus ride to the spot. It’s also a place during the day rents 4-wheelers, snowmobiles, etc. Come along on this journey of the trippiest, scenic, and mind blowing 4d experience.Read more
Okay let’s go explore Whistler’s Olypmic Village, a little information about it below.
The Whistler Olympic and Paralympic Village was a 2010 Winter Olympics facility in the resort town of Whistler, British Columbia. The Olympic Village is considered one of Whistler’s legacy projects, in that it is being used after the Olympics to help house and train Canadian athletes. Whistler is one of the two host communities for the Games. The site of this athletes’ village is in the Cheakamus Valley approximately 20 minutes south of the Whistler Mountain competition venues, and 6 km from the highway cutoff for the Whistler Olympic Park sliding events venue in the Callaghan Valley
After leaving our two night stay in Seattle, Washingting we took a 11PM flight to Vancouver then drove on up to Whistler to stay at the Four Seasons Resort! We wanted to wake up to a mountain of beauty. What I wish was that it was covered in white white snow, but the view was equally amazing.Read more
We accomplished a lot in the two days we were in Seattle before heaving off to Whistler, BC. Today we knocked out the Zoo, Pikes Place Market, and the Museum of Flight! I felt like it was the actual real ultimate Seattle experience and would recommend it for anybody coming for a 24 hour layover or stop. Favorite thing? Was probably the Pikes Place Market!
Instead of doing a tradition blog post I decided to just make another video picture blog of my adventure, any questions feel free to ask, but click the video below to see my photos from the zoo, pikes market, and the flight museum!
Let’s go to Seattle, WA! I’ve never been there and I have always wanted to go. I guess being a computer nerd it’s always been in my mind to check it out. Also the picture of Pikes Place Market I remember from a grade school text book about rain and always thought it was cool and mysterious. I’d go back, a lot more to see and do.
I read about all the bums and homeless people downtown and what not but however my experience was a pleasant one and actually did not run into one homeless person that was “aggressive” as everywhere stated online to watch out for.
We stayed at the Stay Pineapple which was awesome, cozy, and perfect. However be warned hotels in Seattle are like NYC, even the dumps are $300/night.
I usually avoid chain restaurants at all costs, but living in a city with few restaurants that have a dedicated gluten free menu can be frustrating. What better way to embrace chain restaurants at this point then to go to places who do it, and do it right! We adventured to Olive Garden and P.F. Changs, PF Changs at this point we now almost get delivered weekly, they do gluten free right.
Had another work trip in Houston and had to take the lady to Artisans, the best tasting menu ANYWHERE in the US. If your in the area check it out, while I usually don’t review restaurants that I’ve already been too I just had to share some pictures of our meal. 5 star as always again, could have done without the blue cheese is only minor thing.
So this will be my second time dining at Capers. The first time you can check Yelp to see my first review which was a raw fish experience, but was easily fixed by the waitress and replaced with a new dish.
It’s been almost 2 years since then and had to give it another go. We went again and this time the place almost seemed a tad run down. The menus were all nasty, the chairs all had nics and dents, the table was wobbly, and there was more staff walking around than I could count with maybe 15 people in the entire restaurant. Overall the first impressions again were (it would take me one afternoon to solve all these issues).
