Seattle/Vancouver















A month ago, Krista and I went to Vancouver, by way of flying to Seattle and driving up to Vancouver for my brother's college graduation.

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves (which are all out of order), but it was a great trip. Vancouver was way more crowded and "big city"ish than I was expecting and thus a little let down. The only promising record store I could find was overpriced and thought Relapse Records was as underground as it got.

I hadn't seen my brother or sister in 2 years, so it was great to finally see them. As well, I got to meet my brother's girlfriend, whom he has been living with.

We went to see my his grad film (he was an animation major) and have a big fancy family dinner.

We drove back down to Seattle early in the day so we could take in the city.

Seattle was fantastic. The weather was perfect. Found a good record store, but couldn't find anything I wanted. Walked down to the waterfront and took in Pacific waters for the first time in my life. We got a really nice hotel room and spent probably the most I'll ever spend on room service.

We've wanted to leave Denver for awhile. I always thought that if it was 100% up to me, I'd want to move back to the east coast (because that's where I grew up and I love New England). Seeing Seattle changed that.
