Seattle 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.
Just a little warning, this post is pretty long, so feel free to browse them in parts by clicking on the links here: Around Issaquah, Pike’s Place Market and Seattle in general, Space Needle, Bellevue and Boeing Museum. Or else just keep scrolling to look at all the pictures!
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.
