After the weekend’s festivities John and I had some time on our own to explore more of what Kansas City has to offer.

We have been lucky enough to sample the most delicious food during our visit – both home-cooked and out at restaurants, even partaking in some Spanish tapas this evening with John’s mom, Aunt and Uncle.

I’ve been working on and off during this trip, completing my weekly E! article and responding to a few emails so it hasn’t really felt entirely like a vacation. Regardless, we have spent quality time with some amazing people and truly enjoyed their company.

We take off tomorrow and I’ll hit the ground running as Thursday it’s back to work. The West Coast centric posts will resume but I always enjoy writing about my travels. I honestly don’t think this blog would be much if I never actually left the city as going away helps me gain more perspective and appreciate what we have at home in Vancouver.

    Yes, there is no place like home. And while I adore my Mom and love the country that saw me grow up for a number of years (given that I’ve lived in so many other countries), there is no place like home for me, and my home IS Vancouver.

    It’s not too late to catch the last summer days in Vancouver. Thanks for the pics from Kansas, which looks like a funky authentic place.

    Thanks for the photos. With shots of the city skyline, the brick, the architecture, the signage – all of it is very similar to the “midwest” feel from my three years in Minneapolis. In other words, your pictures are giving me the warm fuzzies.
