Seattle is one of my favourite cities in the world. It’s a hub of business and technology, home to global giants including Boeing, Amazon, Starbucks, and Microsoft, and it’s right on the west coast so it’s home to incredible seafood and gorgeous coastal views. Maybe I’m just lucky, but every time I’ve gone to Seattle the weather has been beautiful, and consistently warmer than back home in Toronto. When I was there in the first week of March, it was +13 degrees celsius, and -10 back home. Here’s a look at my latest trip to Seattle, a small pre-tour I took before my stay in Redmond to film my latest Microsoft Virtual Academy video.
One of Seattle’s best quirks is the plethora of weird little details found throughout the city. Missing narwhals, a nasty gum wall, people dancing in the streets…
And then there’s the food. The breakfast buffet at the Fairmont Olympic has an amazing spread of delicate pastries as well as delicious fresh entrees. The macarons in the picture below were coloured blue and yellow in honor of “The Dress” that plagued the internet with its confusing question of blue and black or white and gold.
It’s safe to say I’m pretty infatuated with Seattle. I’m happy to have been able to share this city with my mum and my boyfriend, who joined me on my little pre-trip. Traveling for work is an amazing experience, but it was so refreshing to be able to have two of the most important people in my life join me in this beautiful city.
