My Washington practice trip

Two weeks ago today (where does the time go??) I took my second “practice trip,” to Tacoma, Vashon Island, and Seattle. I used a combination of pedal power, Amtrak trains, and ferries/water taxis.

It was a great success! There were a few hiccups–which is a big part of why I do these trips, to learn from the mishaps–but overall, I had a wonderful time in the journey, as well as connecting with great people at my destination stops.

Rather than writing it all out, I’ll share some photos (below) and this video recap with you, where I share the high points as well as the challenges:

Some of my favorite photos from the trip:

You *must* visit this place if you’re ever in Tacoma!

Me, on that self-same ferry!

And here is the interview with Diane I mention in the video; read it to be inspired!

This journey is really hitting its stride, and I haven’t technically left yet! Thanks to all of you for following along with me!
