Seattle, Washington

It’s become a ritual of mine to go out of town for my birthday - and with my birthday coinciding with the end of the year, I really crave ending the year by going or doing something out of routine, so I can set the new year with great intention. Curious to visit more of the PNW, I had always heard such great things about Seattle - and wow, it did not disappoint. The weather, was perfect. The atmosphere, was perfect. The food, was perrrrrrrrrfect. I need to mention that of all the places in the states, I have never seen nor tasted produce that was as vibrant and delicious as what was in Seattle. Be back really really soon.

*note, I did not eat all that is listed below (although, that does sound like a challenge I would be willing to accept) those with an asterik, are where I ate at*
