Since 1998, local nonprofit travel organization Crooked Trails has done its part to transform tourism into a positive force. The team designs custom, interactive adventures in addition to supporting community development projects in partnership with local communities, NGOs and operators. The overarching aim? “To inspire travelers to get involved in the places they visit and to empower locals to take charge of tourism in their communities.”
I’ve lived in Seattle my entire life so I’ve accumulated different circles of friends from school, workplaces, friends of friends, co-ed sports leagues, and more. However, with many friends, our goals or priorities simply aren’t compatible anymore. We all have our own very busy lives. People have gotten married and have kids or moved away. Finding friends post-college isn’t easy.
Check out this underrated relaxing town on the southern Oregon coast.
When I told colleagues and friends I was heading to the Oregon coast for the weekend, I was met with many responses like “Oh I LOVE Cannon Beach!” “If you’re in Newport you have to check out…” “This Seaside shop has the best…” and so on.

There are certain red-hot destinations where everyone seems to flock these days. Intriguing Iceland is one; beautiful Banff is undoubtedly another. Whether it’s due to our current political climate, an exchange rate greatly favoring American travelers who head north or simply the pressing need to hang out among some of the nicest people on Earth, Canada seems the place to plan your next trip.
Have you visited the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) recently? If, like me, you haven’t been in over a year, it’s time now. After hearing the buzz for Yayoi Kusami’s Infinity Mirror Rooms in the new exhibition Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors, I finally made it out last week. This iconic exhibit has made Seattle its home for a limited time until September 10th, 2017.
When the late night munchies strike, Seattleites can enjoy this new, full-flavored late night food and cocktail menu at The Butcher’s Table, a modern steakhouse located near South Lake Union, serving up its own Mishima Reserve Wagyu beef.
The Grand Canyon is one of the most recognizable National Parks in the United States with its distinguished layered bands of red rock. Formed over millions of years, the Canyon runs 10 miles across and a mile deep. After plenty of research and a successful five-day trip, here are some of my tips and a few pictures (though these don’t do it justice). Honestly, you need to put it on your list—I can’t put into words how magnificent and stunning it is to experience in person.
Going behind the scenes of one of the world’s most admirable professions.
Sometimes we forget that there are so many heroes in our midst—folks quietly going about daily duties that save lives and positively impact our immediate community and the world beyond. These hardworking souls are brave, wise, kind, humble and stronger than often seems humanly possible.
We recently spoke with one such Seattleite—Jodie David, a nurse in the Supportive and Palliative Care service at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. We are so grateful for her work and wanted to share her story with you.
