I had a short trip with my family in Seattle for a couple of days. We had fun during this little getaway although it was exhausting as we walked a lot at many places. Vancouver and Seattle are very close by. After crossing border, our first stop is Premium Outlets in Marysville, WA, which is about 30 minutes away from Seattle downtown. We shop for 2 hours and I got nothing beside some photo shootings. Honestly the price is getting so high and it’s not worth to buy anything at all. So we decide to leave the place. We drive straight to Seattle downtown. We check-in at Sheraton and drop off all the carry-on belongings (We booked our hotel thru priceline and it’s such a good deal, yeah~). It ‘s already evening, we are starving so we look for food. I am craving for Asian food and we found a decent Asian fushion restaurant just a few blocks away from hotel. Food is tasty and I had the best ever jasmine white rice – very satisfied and full. We wander around to pike market after dinner to explore some nigh life fun of Seattle. Half an hour later every of us is very tired after the long day so we go back to hotel at 9 pm and take some rest.

The next morning after checking-out our hotel, we come to Fairmont Seattle for breakfast. It is classic vintage environment as other Fairmonts which I really love! The food portion is so big and none of us can finish the whole meal. Finish feeding our stomach, we are back to the pike place market again. I think I have a crush on the ferris wheels as I just cannot stop taking pictures of it. We walk along the harbour for about 1 hour and then head back to the shopping district. I am so in love with the downtown Norstrom as there are lots of luxury designers’ item I can never get enough. I am so excited to try this and that but end up with no luck. We continue to walk in other department stores and shopping malls and bought some reasonable priced clothings and stuff finally. It’s almost 5 pm and we decide to end the trip by driving back to Vancouver as Sunday nights are always busy at border. We are trying to avoid the peak time to save from the wait.

We are home safely and everything is smooth. Even thought I have been to Seattle many times but I treasure the moment I spent with my family during this little getaway! It really gives me some break to relax from the busy daily work. I am looking forward to my next trip and will share with you guys! Good night!
