Let’s go to … Seattle

IMG_9221 Exactly one year ago I was at O’Hare airport, ready for take-off to Seattle, WA. There I met up with a friend and we explored the city where Starbucks was founded, the story of Grey’s Anatomy plays and Microsoft is based.IMG_9153I really love the city because it seems to be more nature than actual city. Everywhere you go there is lots of green and in general many parks and trees all over the city. Moreover it is situated on the water, the Puget Sound and on the other side Lake Washington. On top it is not too big and not too busy but still exciting enough.IMG_9082 IMG_9079I had the impression that it is very different from the rest of the US. People are very laid-back and everyone seems to be living eco-friendly. There are no trash cans but little recycling islands around the city. People often use their bike. Coming from Chicago I felt like being in the nature or in the woods because the air was so clean and fresh.IMG_9184 IMG_9095 IMG_9093Also, you can buy locally grown/ organic produce in many stores. Especially Pike Place Market is heaven on earth for every foodie. Walking between all the fresh goods I really wanted to have the possibility to do some shopping and later on the cooking. I had Fish’n’Chips for the first time at Ivar’s.IMG_9026 IMG_9254 IMG_9031 IMG_9231 IMG_9236Another thing that everyone should see is the Space Needle, of course. The view from up there is breathtaking. My friend and I also wanted to visit the Meredith Grey House and on the way there we’ve been at Kerry Park. From there you can get the entire Seattle Skyline into one picture.IMG_9068 IMG_9073 IMG_9111 IMG_9116On our last day we decided on a ferry ride to Bainbridge Island.IMG_9229 IMG_9205 IMG_9208Since I didn’t have time to see everything of Seattle I’ll definitely go back again one day. I love that place and I also need to fulfill my dream of cooking with fresh ingredients form Pike Place Market!!IMG_9241
