Kayaking in the Puget Sound

September 11, 2014

Ballard Kayak invited me out to enjoy their Discovery Point Kayak & Hiking Tour. As this was my first time Kayaking, I was a bit nervous. My guide gave me a brief training lesson on the beach and afterwards we were off! The 3.5 hr tour starts at Golden Gardens and continues on to Discovery Point. Once at Discovery Point, we went on a short hike to Discovery Bluff to get a view of the Olympic Mountains. Before heading back to Golden Gardens we enjoyed a gourmet lunch and paddled through Shilshole Marina. During the trek back I got to see a few animals like eagles and sleepy floating seals. My experience with Ballard Kayak was fantastic and I recommend it to any one who enjoys being out on the water.

I took my GoPro along with me so you can experience the tour as I did. I hope you enjoy it!

Moore Coffee – Seattle

August 14, 2014

If you’re traveling through Seattle and looking for one of those not so secret but cool spots that most know about but few have been, then you should check out Moore Coffee located in the heart of downtown Seattle. What I like about Moore is the intimate atmosphere and relaxing décor.

Not only does Moore produce an assortment of delicious hot and cold caffeinated beverages but they also have a small kitchen that creates Instagram worthy breakfast waffles and sandwiches. My favorite choice to order is the Strawberry Shortcake waffle, which has fresh strawberries that are smothered in whipped cream and hot Matcha green tea latte.

Seattle weather has been so nice lately I felt like taking a cruise on the beach with my new Longboard (Dusters)I’m trying to get as much in boarding before the end of the season. Summer is definitely becoming my favorite season of all. I hope this warm weather lasts forever! My outfit: Shirt/Workshop Tank/Express Shorts/Levis Shoes/Converse

Deighton cup 2014 was amazing! Not only was the event filled with awesome people dressed in 1920’s style fashions but there was delicious food by Cocktails and Canapes and great musical entertainment too. This is my second time going to Deighton cup and some how it’s good every year. Maybe it’s because they always pick days with excellent weather or maybe it’s the type of people the event draws. Either way you look at it, what a great day to be in Vancouver!

You don’t have to be a magician to preform the art of weightless levitation. In this photo shoot I was inspired by Natsumi Hayashi. Natsumi is a Japanese Photographer who has been advancing the art of levitation photography for over 4 years with out the aid of Photoshop.

If you’re wondering how it’s done, the effect is achieved by snapping pictures mid jump. If you’re relaxed while jumping you will appear to be floating in the air. If you are thinking about attempting levitation photography, make sure to check out Natsumi’s site Yowayowa Camera woman for tips and tricks. It might seem a bit silly when doing it but afterwards the photos usually display bolt effects. Give it a try!

Every airline has their pluses and minuses. Above is my personal infographic of my experiences with specific European airlines during #Travels2Europe. Some of these airlines I flew for the first time and some not. Hopefully, this flight infographic will help someone else decide which airline is better for them. Airlines are broken down and categorized into best price, most comfortable and best tasting food.
