So, this doesn't count as a real post, but I just wanted to let you all know I'm still alive. The road trip was successful; much fun was had by all. I'm currently in Squamish, but I plan to head down to Seattle in the next couple days to spend some time visiting people in that area while I look for somewhere to stay month-to-month for a bit. Once I get settled there, I'll pick back up where I left off in Europe on my trip around the world. Photos and stories to come - stay tuned.
