Olympic National Park- and Hurricane Ridge. Take the ferry from Edmonds to Kingston; drive through Port Gamble; take the Hood Canal Floating Bridge (sank in a November storm one year). Drive 40 miles to visit Sequim and the Oak Table Restaurant (retirement town). Half way to Port Angeles visit the Olympic Game Farm. From Port Angeles either go to the mountains or the coast.
Rio De Janeiro is a legendary city. The physical beauty of its beaches and mountains is the stuff of picture postcards. Its shops and restaurants are full of delightful surprises. And the relaxed vibe of its people is infectious. PS You can win a trip for 2 to Rio de Janeiro from the US!
