As waterways are plentiful in Washington, I was able to cross some of the waterways on ferries. As I remember, Will & I used 3 ferries: 1. Port Angeles, WA – Victoria, BC. 2. Coupeville, WA – Port Townsend, WA 3. Lummi Island Ferry One of them took us from Port Angeles, WA to Victoria, BC Canada. They varied in price, all of them being fairly expensive to transport an automobile. We didn’t take the car to Canada, though. It…

I’m not used to being a tourist. Usually, when I go somewhere, I don’t frequent the insides of museums, fairs, the normal tourist things. I like to get up early, go to the shore, perhaps the forest, set up my camera and have a good time exploring, pondering shots, listening, enjoying the morning. The same applies for the evenings. In the in-between times, I might go to see a movie, read, watch TV a little bit, not really caring about…

Victoria, British Columbia Canada has never seen the likes of me! Will and I set off on our adventure to Victoria on Tuesday morning.

A quick peak at the local newspaper, Atencion, yields information about yoga, art gallery openings, meditation, Occupy Wall Street meetings, wine tasting, home tours, etc – things that I’d most certainly find, easily in Asheville, NC. I love this place. It reminds me so much of…

First Class

In yesterday’s post, I mentioned that there were no first class seats on the road to Dolores Hidalgo; however, for a trip to Guanajuato, there most certainly were! We got a couple. The bus was pretty big, luxurious, with plenty of leg room. Oddly enough, this bus didn’t have individual televisions, only one, but headphones were included. We were given a snack for our 1 hour, 15 minute journey – a drink and small roll with some type of sweet…

Paul: Por favor, dos boletos, primera clase a Dolores Hidalgo. – Please, two tickets, first class, to Dolores Hidalgo. Agent:No se puede comprar un boleto de primera clase a Dolores Hidalgo. Los todos son de segundo clase. – You can’t buy a first class ticket to Dolores Hidalgo. All of them are second class. And so began the trip to DH. When the ticket agent gave me the answer, immediately, I had visions of movies that I’d seen. I imagined…
