Tuesday Tunes #39

Man, somedays I just really miss Seattle. It’ll hit me at weird times, but I guess it’s good to get the little twinge every once in a while. Just a constant reminder of all the positive that continues to come out of that little nook of the world. Last week I got inspired and made a whole list of songs and rappers that reminded me of the Emerald City. “The Northwest fill my lungs, heals the pain in my chest.”

Well, lookey here, I’m on time! Hanging in frigid Madrid at the moment, not a lick of snow in the entire country. This may be my latest opening day to start, but I’m holding out hope for one heck of a late season push. In the mean time I have been reminiscing about snowier days, and the tracks that remind me of them. While this Grieves song doesn’t exactly remind me of snow, it does remind me of rainy Seattle days that were surely dumping the goods up in the Cascades. B Ez, mi gente.


On Assignment: REI Travel Guides

Winter is kicking into gear and planning has pretty much shifted toward how the heck I’m going to get more snow time this year, but I’ve been pretty pumped on some of my off-snow projects this year.

For one, I’ve been lucky to team up with REI’s Co-op Journal and their new travel guide initiative. Along with outdoors and travel gear, the company is trying to become a resource for everything travel, including information on locations around the world. Luckily, I’ve washed up in a few of those locations and know a thing or two. Even luckier, REI tapped me to share my knowledge to a whole new group of folks.

So, if you’re looking to head somewhere new anytime soon and don’t want to read any of my jumbled emails, follow along for some pretty well-organized travel guides to some pretty cool places.

First up, Portugal.

Christmas season is upon us and I have been slowly watching as the woods fill up with snow around the world. Waiting patiently for my chance to join the downhill frolicking, but for now I’ve got my nose to the grindstone. Thanks to The Bamboos for keeping me (and all of us) moving in the right direction this week. Yew!
