Here's a re-posting from long ago, For those of you that may be visiting Seattle in 2018, here's a short list of a few favorites from my trip.
In November 2016 I visited Seattle for the first time and it did not disappoint. The city was beautiful, friendly, and simply awesome. There’s a few destinations I recommend for the Seattle-bound traveler.
1- Pike Place Market is a must! Not just for the fish market or singing, but for the FOOD in general. This was also a great place to grab some souvenirs. A short stroll down from the market is the beautiful waterfront with more restaurants and shops. We had a great meal along the water.
2-Columbia Center Sky View Observatory was definitely a highlight of the trip. The 360 degree views of the city were breathtaking. Not only could you sit back and enjoy the view, but you could purchase a beer and snack while doing so!
3- The Underground tour was super cool. For those not scared to venture under the city of Seattle into pre-existing streets and buildings, then this is for you! History with a twist. Our tour took place around 6 or 7 p.m. but I was told that the later tours are a lot of fun as well. I highly recommend it!
Those are my travel to Seattle tips! Have fun in the Emerald City travelers!
This passed holiday season was not only lovely and incredibly well spent with family, but also my 28th birthday. Below are some pictures of the holiday
On November 4th, my friend and I traveled to the One Liberty Observation Deck for a Sunrise Saturday Yoga class. It was just what I needed to energize both mentally and physically. Walking into the building, the morning was dark and still, yet full of anticipation for a productive and fun class. The views from the top were not only beautiful, but they added a sense of both peacefulness and excitement for the day to begin.
Last week we took Kobe to one of our favorite local spots- the Valley Green trails. Our little guy loved to trot the trails and climb the rocks. The Fall leaves were just starting and the weather was perfect for exploring the trails with a new perspective!
Well, I've been a little busy with this new, adorable addition in my life! Meet Kobe, my 2 month old sweet chocolate lab mix! This loveable boy is a rescue, and always bringing a smile to my face!
Wine time with the ladies! Last month I visited Sandcastle Winery in Erwinna, PA.
The views were beautiful, and the day was a perfect one for trying different wines, taking in the sights, and eating various types of delicious cheeses.
You can't beat the photo ops associated with a winery backdrop!
Sandcastle had about a dozen wines for tasting. The reds were on the lighter side, and each were delicious! I especially enjoyed the white and blush wines, which are my typical favorites.
A fun day, and a place I would definitely return!
In 2011, my dear friend Dana and I travelled to the magnificent city of Paris. After arriving late in the evening the car took us to the hotel, passing by the lit up Eiffel Tower on the way! I still remember my iPod playing U2 as I gazed in amazement and the Eiffel.
Dana and I woke up early to explore the very next morning. We visited the Louvre, Sacre Coeur, the Palace of Versailles, and more. The city made me feel a sense of adventure and liveliness. The structures had beauty and elegance.
The Palace of Versailles and its gardens were breathtaking! I enjoyed walking and taking it all in. I would recommend this visit for anyone visiting the area. It was just a train ride away!
From shopping to history, brunch to museums, Paris has it all! Below are some more photos of the trip!
Sharing a couple images from a quick holiday
weekend getaway to Tampa! This trip was filled with sun, laughter, and mimosas of course! The most memorable being a Memorial Day 5k walk to benefit Carry the Load.
We also visited Clearwater beach and enjoyed some fun in the sun as well!
Another week has come and gone and so it's time for my next throwback Thursday post! The focus of this week's post is my throwback to Rome 2011!
My dear friend Michael and I visited Rome in May. The weather was perfect and the sun was hot enough to catch a slight burn. One of our memorable stops was the Colosseum, a definite must. Of course, this attraction is renowned! We took the tour and spent a few hours taking in all there was, and buying souvenirs too.
The Trevi Fountain was a sight to remember as well. We threw our coins in the fountain and took selfies, of course!
The pizza was as you'd expect- phenomenal and a foodies dream. The gelato was refreshing and rich. Definitely a trip for content bellies and and pictures galore! Check out some more photos below!
