I’m pleased to announce another guest post on this blog, this time by Alexandra Campey, an adventurer and travel blogger who is here today to give us some great tips about the Mid North Coast of New South Wales, Australia. Check her out on Instagram @alexcampey
Our first full day in Vancouver was an awesome day of exploring some of the attractions the area has to offer. We decided to do the Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse VancouverMountain in the same day since Grouse Mountain is just up the road from the Capilano Suspension Bridge.
Today I’m happy to be interviewing Liliia deCos, who has a great blog about her family’s travels around the world with their baby in tow. Her blog serves as an inspiration for all the parents out there who might feel like they are unable to travel with their children.

Canada was amazing.
We woke up on our last day in Seattle, packed, and cleaned up the Airbnb before hitting the road North. It’s about a 2.5 hour drive from Seattle to Vancouver if the traffic and border crossing time is good, which it fortunately was for us.
Before crossing the border, we stopped in the little seaside town of Bellingham for some coffee, lunch, and most importantly, taking screenshots of the driving directions to our Vancouver Airbnb before we crossed over the border and our phones ceased to work.
Have you ever flown across multiple time zones to some exciting, far-off destination, only to hit a jet lag wall upon arrival? Instead of excitedly exploring a new place, you spend the first couple of days dragging around and falling asleep in mid-afternoon.
Country music…you either love it or you hate it, I’ve found. If you’re from the “or you hate it” group, perhaps this post isn’t for you. I, however, tend to enjoy a lot of country music as I love the twangy beats and songs yearning for a simpler life.
If you, like myself, have a soft spot for country music, perhaps these tunes will help you sit back and unwind, imagining yourself on summer vacation in some beautiful location. These songs are about enjoying life…so enjoy them!
I’m in Canada!
But let’s backtrack a little bit. I’ve been pretty tired at the end of every night, which is usually when I blog, so I have a few days of adventure to catch up on.
When I last left you, we had just spent the day adventuring with some friends.
I’m a big travel enthusiast (as you know) and I’m also an American, so it may surprise you to know that I have never been to New York City.
A great day hanging out with friends and visiting some really cool things in the Seattle proper area.
We were pretty exhausted from the lack of sleep so it felt great to crawl into bed and get a solid night of sleep. In the morning, we enjoyed a homemade breakfast from some things we had picked up at the store the night before and drank tea on our really peaceful little deck. No coffee because the store we went to was one of those really expensive grocery stores so we bought as little as possible with the plan to hit up the Trader Joe’s down the street sometime today (I can’t wait to buy a big bag of coffee). I was still a little tired this morning but feeling much better and ready to go out on a second day of Seattle adventuring. Since neither of us has really spent any time in Seattle before, we of course had to play tourists for the day.
