It was in 2011. We visited Vancouver and some other places in Canada, then we took a bus and crossed the USA border to Bellingham. We rented a car there and drove around the Olympic Península, and then south along the Oregon coast, with some detours. Our flight back to Spain was from Seattle, and i...

We woke up to another beautiful day. I had my morning coffee and a stroopwafel in the back patio trying to avoid the spider webs. Our neighbors were playing some nice mellow music and the sun was shining. I was starting to feel more confident about smoking weed and dealing with the baby, so i rolled...

This was an example of a poor attempt of writing a trip report. In november we'll be having another holiday in Lanzarote and Fuerteventura -again with the baby-. Hopefully, i'll have some free time then or before, and even with so much delay, i will have the decency to finish this. It is a personal ...

The baby woke us up. He was smiling and wanted to play. - Me: He is saying ‘mamá’. Please, come on, wake up and play a bit with him… - Wife: No, he is calling you, he said ‘papá’; you wake up… Laziness and this type of dialogues were the norm every morning of the trip. We got out of be...

At Shiphol's Sport's cafe smoking area.
Trip is over, but what a perfect trip!

Now it is a two hour flight to Bilbao, and then three hours drive home.
I'll do it with a big smile.

I'm enjoying reading the report, thanks for taking the time,

- They had an insanely crazy martians pinball machine at Cafe The Minds (Spuistraat 245), maybe you'd like to see if they still have it. I'm sure your dog would be welcomed there -
