Oh Canada!

So this weekend I took a little trip up to Canada (by myself for the first time, which was kind of scary. But hey! I survived!)

So the first stop once in Canada was of course, the Richmond International Night Market (which was a lot smaller and sadder than I had imagined).

Yumm waffles!

This girl, Emily Seal, performed. And she was pretty good!

Despite the fact that the Night Market wasn't as exciting as I was expecting, I got to see this amazing sunset, so everything was okay :)

Oh this is where it gets really good. So on day two, we heard rumors that there was supposedly a rare occurrence of Aurora Borealis (I guess that was the name of this particular Northern Lights show) happening is some southern regions around the the world, so being the adventurous little adventurers we are, we went out at around 10 pm in the hopes we would catch a glimpse. Only to find out that the  view point on the mountain was completely packed with cars parked for miles. So we continued our adventures elsewhere and found a little park where there was only about 6 other people. And long story short, sadly, we didn't get to see the Northern Lights this time around, but I got some cool pictures (right before the police came and kicked everyone out).

And finally, our last adventure was probably one of my favorites because there was so much pretty nature to see. We went to the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge and watched people cliff jump!

Afterwards, we finished our day going to Burnaby Lake (aka land of the million birds).

I also made a little friend! 

It's always so surprising seeing how much beauty there is in the world (cheesy, I know, but it's true!). I definitely need to take advantage of it more often. Anyways, that's the summary of my weekend trip to Canada. If anyone of you live near these areas I would definitely recommend going! It's so beautiful.

Exploring Bellingham

For my 21st birthday this year a few of my closest friends came to visit me all the way from Portland and Canada! I made a little video about our adventures.

We went to this amazing waterfall park and enjoyed the beautiful nature.

Whatcom Falls Park, Bellingham, WA

After we decided we had enough of the waterfall, we decided to explore around Fairhaven.

Upon exploring Fairhaven, I found this cool cafe. I wanted to go inside but I also wanted to keep exploring, so I guess I'll have to save that for another time.

And then we happened upon this cute little note outside of a shop and helped ourselves to some nice lavender bouquets.

Finally, we decided to end the day by watching the sunset on the boardwalk. Look at this amazing view!

Seeing such a beautiful sunset apparently brought out my inner artiste.

After a weekend of exploring, it was time to say goodbye (even though we have smiles on our faces) :(
