The catalyst for our weekend trip to Arizona? The Vancouver Canucks. Colin's cousin, Gordon, and his family moved from Seattle to Arizona back in the fall. They let us know that the Canucks would be playing there on March 11th - which just so happened to be Colin's birthday. What better excuse to come down for a visit? We liked the idea. And as luck would have it, we managed to find a flight deal for that very weekend ($172 r/t each). So we booked it! As someone who is not actually a big hockey fan, it's crazy that I essentially got on a plane to watch a Canucks game. Even crazier? Not the first time I've done this! When we went to LA back in April 2016, it was also for a Canucks game. But again, we got an insane flight deal ($60 r/t each!) and really couldn't say no. Plus, even though hockey is the catalyst for the trip, we always end up doing so much more!
