travel diary: big sur, ca

Amy and I celebrated 6 years (SIX YEARS!) of marriage the end of August and we generally like to commemorate our anniversaries with a trip, because why not? This year we flew up to San Francisco, rented a car and drove the awe-inspiring Highway 1 the entire way home to Newport Beach, CA.

I had driven this glorious stretch of coastal roads just once before in the the opposite direction, but it was a first for my wife. Thanks to suggestions from a lot of really great friends (and some random Facebook commentators) we had plenty to do and see. A few of the highlights:

I highly recommend a visit to the area if you’ve never been.

travel diary: amsterdam

Amsterdam was magical. Having come from the hustle and bustle of Paris, Amsterdam served as a necessary respite and a great end to our trip. Our accommodations were perhaps the highlight of our stay. We used airbnb to book a houseboat, floating on the canals of an awesome neighborhood.

If you know me, you know that I love bikes, therefore, I was in heaven in Amsterdam. We almost exclusively traveled on two wheels during our stay and it was a fantastic way to see the city. I had heard about it often, but the intricacy of their road network for bikes was phenomenal. So fun.

All in all, a definite 4 thumbs up from my wife and I. Hope you get a chance to visit someday!

travel diary: paris, france

Travel is really important to my wife and I. Throughout our relationship we have been blessed with opportunities to see the world and experience new cultures that have shaped us — individually and as a couple. This trip to Paris was no exception. Amy had been wanting to go, and since this year was her golden birthday we were given the perfect excuse (as if we needed one).

We stayed in the Marais neighborhood and traveled by metro, bus, foot, boat, bike, and train to see as much of the city as possible. It truly is a magnificent place. We were awestruck by the beauty of every side street and the grandeur of the gardens. Paris is truly a “must-see” travel destination and we give it 4 thumbs up.

Special thanks to… Air BnB, Alaska Airlines Mileage Program, and Rick Steves’ audio guided museum tours.

travel diary: pacific northwest

A key component to my summer months is a trip home to the Pacific Northwest to see my family and remember how awesome God is through the amazing scenery. My wife and I spent 2 weeks at 2 different lake cabins with 2 different families (hers & mine).

These photos are a result of our trip and time well spent with some of the best people I know. There’s always something special about home. I think it has to do with significance… you are significant for all of the right reasons and none of the wrong ones. Family loves you for you you are, not what you do.

I hope you had similar reminders this summer.
