Pacific Northwest & Beyond
A PNW and Travel Blog
Visiting the whimsical Ghibli Museum is a must-do in Tokyo if you’re a fan of the animation of Hayao Miyazaki. But getting tickets can be a bit challenging and confusing for foreign visitors. Here’s what you need to know about the museum, including getting tickets and getting there.
Instrumental rock artist JONO recently released a PNW music video called North and is donating proceeds toward Conservation Northwest. The video features locations in CA, OR, WA and BC and shows the beauty of old growth forests.
Westeros and Beyond: Game of Thrones Food, Fashion, and 10 Souvenirs You SIMPLY MUST Take Home From Your Westeros Adventures
I missed my opportunity for an April Fool’s post because I was traveling in Westeros (OK, kidding, I was in Japan). So in heavy anticipation of the final season of Game of Thrones here’s my Westeros “travel blog” post. You won’t really find too much here about the Seven Kingdoms, but you will find some links to sites with good Game of Thrones recipes and cocktails for your premiere or finale party and ten Seven Kingdoms souvenirs you “SIMPLY MUST” have.
To Cascadia And Beyond…
Pacific Northwest and Beyond, as the name implies, is both a Pacific Northwest blog and a travel blog about places beyond the PNW as well.
I love to travel, but am rooted here in the PNW. I find that, while I love going abroad, exploring the world also makes me appreciate the beauty of my home area.
This site features posts about the Pacific Northwest (eventually including hikes, lodging, food, events), Travel (eventually including destinations, stories, travel tips). and has a small, but growing calendar of PNW events, (from time to time featuring my picks…which, I’ll warn you sometimes tend toward the geeky or weird). I’m also starting to add some recipes which I justify putting on this site by stating that they are travel-inspired.
For me, foreign language learning, and photography also relate to travel…so I may also post some resources on foreign language learning or photography as I strive to become better at both.
I currently strive to add a post weekly, my intention is to rotate posts between categories.
