Travel Diaries: Seattle and beyond

DSC00653_seattleSeattle reminded me so much of my home town. Snow capped mountains, fog over the hills, the perfect winter weather that is not brain freezing  and the freshness in the air after the rain. Now combine that with good food, warm coffee and good friends, you have a perfect holiday.

Around Issaquah:

I stayed with my former college roommate and her husband in Issaquah. The morning of the Christmas day, we decided to go for a walk around their house. It was a beautiful morning.DSC00279_seattle
