Mountain, Trees, Snow, Ice and Freeway-Road to Kamloops


One of the most nail biting driving in my life was at icy roads of BC-5 highway on temperature of -13F or -25C ๐Ÿ™‚

Bellingham International Airport


Good Price Hunting landed me to visit Bellingham Airport (aka South Vancouver.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ) – a perfect Southwest model airport – small & less-crowded airport. 2 pics above shows all the airport – single floorย departure and arrival.ย Soย this airport maybe the smallest airport – with only 5 gates- I have ever been to (even smaller than Long Beach airport in LA)

But, very clean and “looks like recently renovated” airport and smooth (thanks to no crowd) check-in & security process and quick boarding (there is no ramp at the gate – you just walk up) no wait during any process ๐Ÿ™‚ Definitely worth of 2 hours drive if you have price bargain when compared to departing from Seattle.

Thanksgiving Trip to Vancouver BC

seatovan.PNGGreat lessons learned from short 1 night trip to Vancity …

* Realization of my dependency on mobile data service: Not having data service (or fearful of crazy data roaming charges) on Canadian territory made me feel like a stone-age people…
* Always avoid I-5 Peach Arch borders: This time WA-539 from Bellingham worked perfect both in and out
* Richmond, BC is China… ๐Ÿ™‚
