My Spring and Winter 2018 Seattle Itineraries

I’ve been living in Metro Vancouver for more than 10 years, and I don’t think people here waited for this long to go across the border. I finally visited Seattle for the first time in 2018 and did it twice! Below are my two 2018 Seattle itineraries.

My 3-Day Kelowna Itinerary in Fall

I have passed through Kelowna before but never have enough time to explore the city. Thus, I brought my family to Kelowna and spent our Thanksgiving long weekend here. It was a laid back trip and I enjoyed it a lot. Below is my 3-day Kelowna Itinerary.

My Vienna & Northern Italy Itinerary in Summer

I just completed my visit to Europe from June 22 to July 15, 2018, and it was an unforgettable experience! This was a school field trip with a preset itinerary, but I still needed to schedule my flight and made a plan for my free weekends. Below is my 3-week Vienna & Northern Italy itinerary. It isn’t the best itinerary for personal travel, but I will give you some insights on the cities I visited.

My 7-Day Big Island Itinerary in Early September

I had a wonderful time on Big Island of Hawaii! All the beaches, mountains, waterfalls and food we had exceeded my expectations and made me want to see other places. Below is my actual 7-day Big Island itinerary from Sept 2 to Sept 8, 2017. Feel free to use it as a guide when planning a trip to Big Island.

Please note, the goal of my trip is to see as many things as possible, so I was a little bit rushed and didn’t spend a lot of time in each destination. You can definitely skip some places and focus on other destinations. I will write more about each destination I visited in separate posts. Places with the tag Recommended! are highly recommended, and I wished I stayed longer!
