I’m not much of a city person, but always enjoy exploring Seattle! So when my sweet friend had some buddy passes for us to use up, and my sis-in-law and her husband were in, it all made this last minute trip especially fun. Riding stand-by is an adventure in itself; we were waiting nervously to get on the plane, yet on both the first flight out and the first one back home, we got the last four seats remaining, score! We had a lot of fun together, and my highlight was using Seattle’s new rent-a-bike system (which was only $8!-Pronto) to cruise around the city, taking in the sites, and stopping for yummy food and coffee all around.

I never get tired of this tourist-must. It’s always so fun to explore and see various art, taste flavorful samples, add to the gum wall, and I love dahlia’s… only $5 a bouquet!
The views of Seattle taking a ferry out to and back from Bainbridge Island were lovely! We had fun exploring little hiking trails and streets with cute shops, and indulging in my pear sorbet from Mora Iced Creamery. I wouldn’t mind going back and staying a bit longer.
