The other day I wrote about being a Last Minute Traveler conveniently right before I hopped on a plane for a last minute trip.

Without telling many people I decided last week to take a trip to the Pacific North West of the USA not only to visit my friends Tawny and Chris of but to also go with them to Portland, Oregon to attend the Nomading Film Festivals Winter Recess. However I didn’t tell the Noff guys that I was coming and instead I documented my trip and my surprising them the day of the festival. I was almost caught too! Check out the video HERE.

I’m now back in Seattle again, I have been to the Pike Place Market, saw the germmy gum wall, visited the Space Needle and have been eating some great mexican.


I had been hoping to visit Hawaii or Las Vegas after this trip, but it unfortunately looks like I won’t be able to make it to any other places right now and will head home shortly.

However exciting news! I am going to New York at the end of the month with Diamond PR and my friends that I went to Puerto Rico with in the summer on the Vloggers in Paradise trip! Our trip won Diamond PR a travel video blogging campaign!

“The Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International (HSMAI) will recognize the San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino with a Gold Adrian Award for Public Relations excellence for its winning entry in the 55th annual Adrian Awards, the largest and most prestigious travel marketing competition globally. ”

Its very exciting and we are all going down for the awards show and then after the awards show I am headed back to Puerto Rico to enjoy the 3 nights stay that I won at the San Juan Marriot for the online vote win that I won for my video from that same campaign!

Pretty exciting start to a new year of lots of travel!

Have you been to Seattle before? What should I see and do? Let me know your secrets! 🙂
