I have to say this is probably one of the only times I’ll admit to missing the buckets of rain in British Columbia. I don’t really get homesick too often [thanks to the wonders of skype] but right now I’m really wishing I could teleport back to Vancouver for a few days. Missing home and all the good things and people that come with it.

Despite my apprehensions about the weather and the possibilities of bear encounters, camping was pretty darn awesome [and not a single bear sighted, phew]. The rain gave us extra motivation to make use of the clear breaks in the weather, so we took advantage by spending time by the lake, swimming, sitting by the fire and exploring the area a bit. Oh and making some yummy camp food. Thanks to Federica for taking photos 1 and 8 while I was driving!
We finally made it to Oregon yesterday after many hours of driving, but with lots of cool stops along the way. Cannon Beach is amazing and I’ve only seen a little bit so far.. looking forward to spending some time exploring the coast around here. I’ll probably take a little break for a few days but I’ll be taking lots of photos to share soon. Hope everyone enjoys the weekend!

Last weekend I went camping with a bunch of friends from my undergrad program and it was fantastic. Although it poured rain most of Saturday, we made the most of it and thankfully it dried out in the late afternoon..just in time to set up the tent. It was really nice to spend some time in the wilderness, something I had been craving after spending around 10 months in Europe. It really made me appreciate British Columbia even more. I have another set of photos from this trip I’ll post soon.
I’m leaving for Oregon on Thursday and I’m super excited! I hope this nice weather holds..
