Seattle, Washington, USA: The Adventure Begins!

Well, after a week of harried moving and packing and storing and just generally being completely busy and worn out, the trip has finally begun.

After a few last minute trips to the storage unit this morning,  and a bunch of other errands I finally boarded my first flight! Courtney took me to the airport around noon for my flight to Seattle. Four hours later and I finally got my first glimpse of the Pacific Northwest. It was overcast. Heh! 🙂

It’s been a pretty wild day. This morning I was piling trash in the carport of my home for 5 years and now after a short flight, meeting up with some friends, a great dinner and a ferry ride I’m homeless and settled into my friend’s guest house for a night of much needed rest. Tomorrow I’ll get to see more of the city, but I am already in love. The ride from the airport was all green and trees, and downtown Seattle is just gorgeous. Obviously I have not seen very much yet, but it has a small town feel that’s all grown up. There are beautiful, old brick buildings nestled in with the skyscrapers and everything just oozes excitement.

I have one week before I have to be in Los Angeles for my flight to Melbourne. Tomorrow I am going to try to rent a car and find an affordable place downtown to stay.

And that’s all for today. I’m beat, and have an early start in the morning. Bye for now!
