Seattle, I didn't set out to plan a trip to Seattle back in 2008, I was planning an Alaskan inside passage cruise. We had been to Europe a couple of times in the previous couple of years and had decided to stay closer to home in 2008. My parents had always talked about going to Alaska, so when I started looking at cruises I looked at one's that would be easiest for them. The thought was that the shorter flight to Seattle would be easier than flying into Anchorage, and would avoid any passport issues with Vancouver BC. So I decided on a round trip from Seattle. I did everything that I could to persuade my parents to go, and in the end they were afraid of traveling and being that far away from civilization and medical care. They waited to long for the adventure.
I worry about being late, so I booked us to fly into Seattle a couple of days before the cruise left, and an extra couple of nights in Seattle on the way home. It is a neat town, we visited the Space Needle and the surrounding parks, the Pike Place Market, toured underground Seattle, took a ferry out to Bainbridge Island, and met some dear blogging friends for a fun afternoon.
Fun town, I would go back anytime.
Have you been sleepless in Seattle?
