Honeymoon Adventure!

When we first started talking about our honeymoon, we immediately ruled out anywhere tropical. Yeah, we're weird. But - we've both been to Hawaii, Steve's been to Jamaica and Costa Rica, I've been to Cancun and Cabo and we have little interest in the bahamas, caribbean, etc. We were looking for a place with lots of music, CULTURE, theatre, museums, interesting sites and people, not beaches.

Initially, we wanted to keep it simple and go to Vancouver, Canada for a week. We've talked about visiting Vancouver before and know it would be an awesome vacation. But the more we thought about it, the more we realized that we should take advantage of this opportunity to go on a REAL holiday and GO BIG!

So, we thought about Iceland. Iceland would be sooo romantic and beautiful. We'd hike around a lush, green countryside, graze with cool animals, and jump into geothermal hot springs. We'd get to chat it up with the Norse and learn about their unique culture. Definitely our style.

Our next thought was Japan. JAPAN! Who goes on their honeymoon to Japan?! Looks like we do! We thought it would be an excellent place to immerse ourselves into an entirely different culture, explore a bustling city, take the bullet train to fishing villages and gorgeous shrines, and eat really good sushi! So, it's official: we're going to Tokyo!

Best BFF Bisit

So I have a list. A list of things to do in my life. Since 2001, "hike to the P" has been on that list. Well, 4 years after graduation, I can finally cross it off! For those of you who don't know what the P is, take a look:


Heather came to visit for a night and it was her brilliant idea to accomplish our goal! We don't really know why it took us so long to do this because it was like a 5 minute hike. It took longer to walk from the parking lot to the trail head than it did to get to the P. But boy oh boy it was worth the wait!! The view was spectacular and we chose the perfect time to hike! It wasn't too hot, and the hills were the loveliest shade of green. We could see all of Cal Poly and San Luis Obispo and it brought back lots of memories of the town where we entered adulthood together.

Heather, thank you for coming all the way from Hawaii to see me!! I am so lucky that I get to call you my friend!! You are one of the best people I know. And by BEST I mean you make this world a really, really, incredibly awesome place to live!!
