    Just spent hours in the outlet stores...actually the first time that shopping clothes was fun! Especially in the Victorinox store.
    Next goal will be a visit of the first ever Starbucks.
    More pictures of Seattle will follow...Read more

    Mariners vs. Detroit Tigers

    July 26, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    After a quick hotel stop, we had dinner at a local brewery near our hotel in the university district before catching the train to T-mobile park for some baseball. Our seats were superb, giving views of the Seattle skyline and the iconic Space Needle with the pitch below us. The match was hard fought, 2-0 to Tigers for much of it before being drawn level. In the end it came right down to the last ball of the 9th inning for the Mariners to snatch a victory.

    Post-match, there was a "Hall of Fame " fireworks display which was spectacular.

    Number plate update: Louisiana (44/50)

    Honolulu to Seattle

    July 29, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Another big day on the road or more accurately, in the air. Checked in at Hawaiian Air at one Terminal then walked and walked and walked across another Terminal to our departure gate. Had we known the distance involved we definitely would have got the shuttle. Not good for Neil's leg! No meal on the plane as there were no vegetarian options and there are no options when booking flights with Hawaiian Air to give a food preference or special food needs. Definitely a negative for flying with them if you are not a carnivore. Most other airlines we have flown with have a vegetable/meat choice during flight or the option to choose when booking. Enough whinging. The flight otherwise was good. No one more whinge - no in flight entertainment in economy unless you pay ....... this is not a budget airline.
    Arrived at 10.30pm in Seattle and luckily there was a bakery open in baggage claim with very nice veggie wraps. So we didn't fade away after all. Then followed marathon walk number 2 for the day. Up elevators, out of the airport, across a massive carpark, follow the signs, follow the signs to the elusive light rail. Finally it materialised and we on our way to Capital Hill, Seattle, arriving at midnight. Outside the station we searched for the taxi rank that we assumed would be there outside a station but no there wasn't one. Enter stage left the helpful station cleaner who went and found the taxi number off the security, rang the taxi company and generally saved our day. Midnight found us lumbering up numerous steps to our Airbnb studio then promptly hitting the sheets.

    Seattle - Rest n recharge the batteries

    July 31, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Neil's leg is sore. We have walked a lot in the last few days and his leg needs a break. Can't push it at this stage of our journey if we want to last the distance. We are here, hopefully, for the long haul so rest day it is. I have a good book to read, The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher, so rest we will. Further exploration of Seattle can wait until tomorrow.Read more
