Live from Seattle

seattle centerOn Friday I will have been in Seattle a whole week. The days I’ve been here have flown by, probably because my friends and I have filled it with lots of sightseeing. My first two nights I was here I found myself quite overwhelmed by being in a new place, and I’ll be honest at times I wanted my Mom. Back home I’m used to the comforts of a lot of space from other people, so it felt odd being surrounded by people. It still feels odd but I seem to be coping a lot better. My friends are heading back home tomorrow and it’s inevitable that I’ll probably freak out again. Heh-heh.

Speaking of freaking out, Tuesday was our first time using public transportation by ourselves and it was a complete disaster. It took a good portion of the day switching from bus to bus to get to the Space Needle. Finally we got there and I don’t think any of really got to enjoy it from all of the walking we did during the day – trying to get there. Today was a lot better. My friends stayed at a hotel last night and are doing so tonight. I met them down at their hotel today and made it there without any trouble. Go me! I feel a bit more confident using public transportation because of the problems we had on Tuesday; I guess it was a blessing in disguise.

Here are just a few photos I’ve taken of Seattle so far . . . I’ve still got lots and lots of editing to do and hopefully I’ll get around to it eventually. I’m feeling very inspired being in Seattle right now.

    I have enjoyed following your tweets along your adventure on getting there. As a truck driver, I understand how the road trips can be. Unlike me. I’m glad you are able to stop and see cool sites. Be careful in the big cities. Enjoy your summer.

      Thanks, Shaun! Are you not able to ever stop on trips or it depends on if you're making good time or not?

    It’s a good thing you got where you needed to be safely! I’m a public transportation failure, so I’d be weary of traveling anywhere unfamiliar. I hope you continue to enjoy Seattle :)

      I'm a bit weary myself, too.
