As I told you all last week, I spent an amazing Martin Luther King Jr. weekend in Whistler, Canada. There were about fifty girls from my sorority who joined me on this adventure. Needless to say, we came back from this trip with lots of memories. We drove to Portland the night before and stayed at my house and left at 5 a.m. the following morning.
The drive took about nine hours and we were exhausted by the time we finally reached Whistler. When we arrived it was snowing and the village was glowing with Christmas lights. It was the definition of a winter wonderland!
During our three days there we went skiing, intertubing and enjoyed relaxing in the village. On our second night there we made some friends from Australia. They were extremely fun and we ended up spending the rest of the weekend with them! Meeting new people is one of my favorite things about traveling. I have never been to Australia and now I have a place to stay if I choose to go there! It's time to begin planning my next adventure.
