July has been an exciting month full of many adventures in my own city and surrounding area. This past month I decided to open up my apartment to couch surfers from couchsurfing.com. Was it ever a blast! Instead of me going out in the world the world came to me. I had surfers from Germany, Belgium, England, the Netherlands, the US and Australia. My home became like a mini hostel in many ways. I had a blast cooking, showing them the local sites, whale watching, exchanging travel stories and lots of laughs!! At one point I had 5 people (including me) staying in my 450 square foot bachelor apartment. What crazy fun. I have written before about Why I Love Couch Surfing and Think It’s a Great Idea. If you love meeting new people and going on adventures why not give couch surfing a try?

I Got to Take the Train Down to Washington State
I took the Amtrak train from Vancouver BC. to Everett Washington to visit some family. It was so great to be on the train again. As you know I did Train Travel Across Canada Via Rail. I would love to buy a train pass for the US and go to several different cities. I have more friends and family I’d like to visit. It was a great weekend in the US which left me wanting to travel more!
I bought Myself a New Camera
I have had my eye on this Canon Rebel T5 DSLR Camera for the past year. I finally went and bought it. It will now be the camera I take my travel photos on. I am excited to delve further into taking beautiful travel photos. Here are a few shots I took with it:
Well that has been my July. I am excited for more great adventures for August! What are you looking forward to this August?
