USA - Seattle, Washington

overcast 15 °C

Seattle is a super city, only a few hours from Vancouver but it has such a different vibe. There's music in the streets, more of a multicultural feel, the first original Starbucks store and Pike Street Market! The waterfront market is a must for all tourists, and sells all your could need from fresh food to trinkets and our favorite were the old posters and maps dating back to the 1900's. We also spent a very rainy afternoon in the Experience Music Project (EMP) a Museum dedicated to Seattle musicians and current students, with an area for 'jamming' in soundproof rooms. Pretty impressive and worth the visit if you have a spare few hours.

We are very thankful to our fabulous hosts Kasey and Jon, who we met travelling in Colombia a good 18 months earlier. They live in a funky little house in the Green Lake area, and gave us so many great tips about the city and helped us plan a lot of our road trip!

We took the opportunity to ride around to explore the bike friendly city (phew, it was worth packing the bikes), and on our second night we went to the Major League Baseball to see the Settle Mariners play Kansas City in a game. There are some great stadiums in Seattle, and it was pretty fun to be inside one! We also couldn't resist sampling a cafe latte from Vivace's in the Capitol Hill district...mmmm.
