Finally back on the blog again after a two-week hiatus. Currently I am back in Hong Kong after my long trip back home to Canada. Although I’m no longer travelling now, I have been busy as heck because I am preparing to move to a new apartment in a couple of weeks (more details on this later). In the mean time, I have many photos and stories from my travels that I will be sharing here with you all.
This first thing on my itinerary in my trip back home was actually a road trip to the States. I landed in Vancouver on a Friday night and the next morning I drove down to Washington state with my dear friends Ada, Amanda, and Jessica. When I lived in Vancouver I used to make frequent trips down to Seattle since it was only less than a three-hour drive away. Being back on the I5 highway brought back lots of memories and it felt good to be surrounded by so much greenery again.
On the way to Seattle are the Seattle Premium Outlets. We spent a surprisingly long amount of time here because the shopping was just so good. I scored some amazing deals at J. Crew, Vince, and Adidas. This resin wash Levi’s jacket that I’m wearing in these photos was also a new purchase from the outlets that I wore straight away.
Our first stop in Seattle was Fremont, where we grabbed a coffee at Milstead & Co. and watched the sunset on the river.
A trip to Seattle isn’t complete with Molly Moon’s ice cream. It’s one of my top 3 favourite ice cream spots in the world.
One of the main attractions in Seattle is definitely Pike Place Market. Although this place is constantly crowded and swarming with tourists, I reckon that some of the best food in America can be found here.
In my previous visits to Seattle I would always line up for the world famous Pike Place Chowder here. This time around, I went to Beecher’s Handmade Cheese instead and tried their Dungeness Crab Cheese sandwich. It was the best sandwich I ever had and I’m salivating just by the thought of it.
After eating at Pike Place Market, we spent some time wandering around the rest of Downtown Seattle. I particularly liked Pioneer Square, the oldest part of Seattle that is filled with picturesque heritage buildings and cool places to eat.
Loved this whimsical outdoor seating area in Occidental Square.
