My newest travel article @Forbes.com recounts my recent trip to Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Lately I’m finding that totally random trips are the most fun. Being in the mountains for a few days reminded me of living in Boulder, CO, where I went to college. After class (or during…let’s be honest) we’d drive into the mountains just because we could. Living in an awesome city surrounded by nature is the way to go. Close proximity to cosmopolitan life and to trees, mountains and rivers is an incredible, healthy lifestyle. Vancouverites travel 45 minutes out of the city to Squamish and Brackendale for a break. Head a bit further up north, and you’re in Whistler. Not a bad way to live.
