We've been planning a bit of an epic trip for quite a while. It's something we've been dreaming of for such a long time but things just keep coming up (this winter it's buying a house - that has to be a good excuse doesn't it!)
The plan would be to fly out to Vancouver (A) and to spend a few days there visiting friends. Vancouver is a city that I've been wanting to visit for the longest time. I have 2 different friend living there too, so I really ought to. Then we'd head to Whistler (B) for a week on the slopes and in the amazing Canadian snow. And then back to Vancover for another few days.
Next we'd get our hands on a car and make the journey over the border into America, to Seattle (C) for some serious eating. Jim watches a lot of the food network, so he's got a lot a list of places he wants to try. And I want to check out Portland (D). I read too many blogs and own too many pairs of Converse you see ;)
The journey, if we could have the time off work, would continue down the coast to California. I've been to Cali a few times but I love it and Jim's never been so it'd be an ace journey - if we can make it that far. Our plan then would be to head a little in land to Mammoth (G) - I spent a winter living in Mammoth so it would be amazing to go back and see how much it's changed, even for a day. The route would then wind us down to L.A (I) for the flight out, but not before we've hit up San Francisco (E), again, we have a list of restaurants to try and sights to see, Monterey (F) and Big Sur (H) for some literary reliving of Cannery Row and all the Jack Kerouak novels.
So, what do you think? An amazing trip, no?
