Those of you who may have read this blog in the past, or know me personally may know that I will, and have an many occasions, travel anywhere at the drop of a hat. Especially when it involves red-eye flights and last minute packing. . . wait, what?
I recently decided that living life on the edge was much more fascinating than playing safe. I'll learn how how pack a weekend bag in a half hour, sleep on overnight flights and cram homework for a class the next morning, if it means experiencing a new city. Satisfaction comes from choosing opportunity rather than the comfort of the predictable norm.
"Want to go to Seattle this weekend?"
A few of may favorite things about Seattle:
- Coffee (Caffe Senso Unico was my favorite)
- Locals are nice and chill
- The flowers in Pike's Place Market
- The Seahawks
- Fresh sea air
- Public transportation was impressively efficient
- Eden Hill Restaurant (DO NOT miss this. Make a reservation)
- Beautiful views
- The uncanny, comical series of bad decisions that led to Seattle's existence (must do a history tour)
Seattle's wet, northwestern coastal weather subsided by sunset on our first day, giving us a golden evening view from the top of the Space Needle. The weather remained pleasant for the remainder of our weekend there. We were even fortunate enough to see Mt. Rainer on our last day in SEA... while at the top of the Smith tower. Right after the Seahawks won.
My first experience in Seattle still remains a constant reminder to enjoy the simple pleasures in life... time with friends, brightly colored flowers, impromptu dates, and fresh air.
