My birthday this year was a big one. I turned 30. Eeek! I’ve been a little anxious about getting older, but George, my husband, softened the blow with a trip to Seattle. I didn’t know where we were going until a week before the trip, so I didn’t have much time to plan. And that was A-OK. In my everyday life, I plan like a squirrel on steroids, but I don’t like to plan every detail of trips. It takes the adventure out of it.
We winged a lot of this trip. We probably could have saved a bit more money if we planned every aspect, but George assured me that he got an excellent deal on the hotel and the plane tickets. That was good enough for me.
I did have one moment of doubt when we walked to the Space Needle and saw that tickets were $22! The views were worth it in the end, but almost $50 for a view of the city is steep my friends.
Around every turn in Seattle there were sweeping views of the city and Mt. Rainer.
We, of course, drank too much coffee, ate boatloads of sushi and took a tour of underground Seattle. Not the underground music scene, but we went legitimately underground. The history of Seattle, as a city, is super interesting.
I’m so thankful that we’ve decided to live a small life in order to travel and save money. Our lifestyle isn’t always easy, but it’s a good life.
Have you crossed any trips off your bucket list lately? I want to hear about them in the comments.
