Coffee cups and Ferryboats

It's not at all hard to determine where I was the past few weeks.
If the title didn't give it away, the last few pictures surely will. For a Starbucks addict like myself, getting to its Pike place location provided a definite thrill even before imbibing any caffeine.
The skyline of Seattle as you can see is truly beautiful. I had perfect weather during my stay and though it drizzled on my last day, I fully embraced it as part of the necessary Seattle experience. I mean, if I could see Mount Rainier in the distance on my very first day, what more could I ask for? Nothing - except maybe for a longer stay.

Seattle has officially ascended to the very top of my list as most favourite US city. A local I spoke to told me that they were completely spoilt by all the riches Seattle had to offer and I completely agree. Being in Seattle made me feel as if I had just done 10 sessions of hot yoga. Serene and at one with nature.

Even with an average drinking rate of a cup of coffee every 3 hrs or so and the Grey's Anatomy jingle playing unavoidably in my head, I had never felt more recharged and energised. A truly happy camper.

PS. My adventures on the West Coast continues in Wine Country...


  1. Oh, Seattle looks gorgeous! I've never been before but I'd love to go. It looks great. Look forward to seeing more of your adventures! xx

  2. You know, I hear this same kind of thing about Seattle a lot. I have to say, it always sort of surprises me. I guess I just always have this mental picture of Seattle being rainy and dreary and just no fun at all. But if I were to go by what you've said here, as well as what I've heard from other people, it actually seems like the kind of city and place that I would love. Hopefully one day I'll get to check it out for myself. Love the photos... particularly 2,3, and 4.
