And so the day comes, almost a month after being home, for the final roll of film from our trip. These are back in California, our final days. Breakfast at Katy's (a childhood tradition), including all our silly faces. Yes, Marcus and I proudly wore (different shades of) denim shirts on the same day. Tom had a little too much fun giving the baby nutcracker king napkin arms and a scepter. Outside my dads house, everyone decided to get a little patriotic under the flag...they look like crazies. The next few were on the way to the airport with some sad goodbyes. And the last few are from the sky, just before we flew over LA. I guess that concludes this little series. Now to deal with my post-post-travel-blues.

There were lots of things that weren't captured, like a lot of Portland with family, our San Jose Sharks ice hockey game, New Years Eve celebrations, skiing on Christmas Eve, our Christmas Day activities and feast, I could go on. But that was mostly because I was far too busy having an incredible time to even think of picking up my camera. It's hard because you tell yourself you want to capture every moment so you can remember it forever. But this truth is, sometimes that takes you away from actually enjoying the moment. So I'm not sorry, because I have so many wonderful memories that I couldn't possibly forget. And if I do, maybe next time we're all together we can remind each other. Apologies for the sentimental rant, after going on unbelievable adventures with my favourite people in the world I can't help but reflect on how blessed I really am.

Some family shots, an older sister, my dad and my younger sister — Skyler — who I only get to spend time with when we go to America. She's a cute little bean. The next few was our incredible views from driving to and from Banff. And lastly, the drive back to California and my dad's incredible face. Sadly, that brings an end to Canada. I really can't describe it. We rarely have time all together like this with my dad and Skyler, so when we do it's just so wonderful. Especially in such a beautiful place like Golden. We had so many adventures — skiing in the Rockies on Christmas Eve, barbecuing Turkey in the snow on Christmas day, snow shoeing and snow mobiling (sooo fun), soaking in an outdoor hot tub while snow was falling, stargazing and staying up late either playing scategories, watching Christmas movies or hoping the Northern Lights would show up. I love my family, and glorious Canada will forever remind me of how much.

Most of these are from Ill Nido Country Inn where we stayed, which by the way was incredible. We were hosted by the loveliest people who gave us so many helpful tips, towed us out of our snowy fiasco, made us the most incredible breakfast most mornings, got us great prices for local activities AND the Inn was absolutely beautiful. If you want to stay in a glorious cabin in BC surrounded by the Rockies, Ill Nido is just the greatest. The end of the roll was from snow shoeing, which sounds odd (I had never heard of it) but really you can walk on powder and not sink knee deep.

The first few images are from a cute little cafe in Monterey called Happy Girl Kitchen, everyone was sitting around drinking coffee being cute and festive with the holly sprawled across the table. That same day we all decided a road trip to Santa Cruz was necessary. So off we went, with the sun roof open to enjoy some sweet California sunshine. We found our way to the boardwalk, where it was impossible not to take thousands of photos in the magical light.

First few images from a cafe within the New Museum—super cool building with a killer exhibition on at the moment, and Tacombi—what started as a rad taco VW bus in Mexico but is now permanently in NY. The next few images are from the Whitney Museum, and holy heck was it good. My favourite out of all the ones we went to by far! Some really awesome permanent and temporary exhibitions on at the moment. Not to mention the sweet rebrand by Experimental Jetset. We also had a quick peak at Grand Central Station to get some much needed tourist snaps, and lastly, went to the Guggenheim to check out the beautiful building which yes, lived up to it's absolutely incredible reputation. And that ends our New York journey! Back to California (:

A couple more shots from Brooklyn at the start, followed by the Knicks vs. Celtics game we attended which 1. the Knicks lost very badly, and 2. Adam Sandler was at our game. The rest are from the glorious Ace Hotel/Stumptown, sisters, general city galavanting, beautiful buildings and one particularly worthwhile mention is Dudleys. If you're an Australian and have traveled to the States you know how hard it is to find a light breakfast and not only a flat white, but an incredibly made one at that. But also with free coffee refills—so really it's the perfect mix of Australian and American hospitality. A+ from me.
