Johnny Rockets, Seattle

Hello there!! I know this has been a little while coming, but I thought you might like to see a little something from my trip to Seattle. On my last day I was wandering around in a shopping centre (mall) and I came across an oldschool American Diner!!! Naturally I went in!

It was called Johnny Rockets and they had little jukeboxes on each table and they were playing oldschool music.

I sat at the counter, where I had a good view of the chef and the whole place really.

And before too long out came my order.
An oreo cookies and cream shake

My goodness it was the best one I have ever had! It was SO decadent and creamy and with little bits of biscuit. SOSOSO good 🙂

I felt like I had to go for a bit of a walk afterwards hahaha.


Sleepless in Seattle

hehehe. I am posting with popular titles, the ‘hello seattle’ is a song by Owl City. And ofcourse Sleepless in Seattle is a movie. Today I went past the house they used for the film but it has been so long since I have seen it that I didnt recall it. For anyone interested.
SO I was supposed to meet up with a friend I met on flickr tomorrow but then she sent me a message inviting me along to something today so we spent the morning missing each other on the phone/computer until we connected and organised an afternoon meet.

I took the morning (inbetween this running around) to go and head over to the space needle to check out the view and then to do a bit of shopping. I bought a ring, Edwin! hahaha. Ed was just telling me the other day about how much jewellery I look at. I dont buy it unless its awesome and cheap and I have only bought 1 necklace, 3 rings, 1 pair of earrings whilst overseas so I dont think thats too bad. I think thats all anyway hahaha. Vancouver actually has an awesome independent jewellery selection!
Anyway, back to Seattle. Heres a really crappy pic of the space needle, theres a better one on my flickr.

So yes, the space needle was SO HIGH UP! It had an awesome view and the sun was out so it was lovely. I really enjoyed just walking around the streets and people watching. There are some real characters over here. I wish I could take photos of them all!

Heres some american candy bars i tried

Tootsie Roll = ew. Not my thing at all.
Razzles = soooooooo cool. They really taste like sherberty kinda candy and then they make gum SO COOL.
Junior Mints = mini after dinner mints. Good too.

I also saw peanut butter twix!!!!!!!!! WTF!! Dont mess with the original. I couldnt bring myself to buy it. Peanut Butter obsession – I TOLD YOU! hahaha.

Anyway, yes so then I met up with Kate and her friend Fiona and then Kates friend Elena from Italy and we went adventuring for some food and then on the Seattle Ducks, which is like the vehicles that go into the water in QLD. They are even crazier though hahaha. The lady driver was so insane, she is married to one of the fishermen on deadliest catch. Go figure!! It was a lot of fun and great to have some local knowledge into Seattle.

Thats enough photos for now.

Hello Seattle!

Well here I am in Seattle, U.S.A. I must admit that being in another new country is a lot more thrilling than I thought it would be. The bus trip took about 5 hours (with a stop in the middle at the US border). They let me in! YAY! hahaha. So then when I got to the Seattle station I decided to just get a taxi to my hotel and save the 20 min walk through unknown streets. I was going to do the walk but after passing some strange people on the bus I decided against it. So I arrived and they upgraded me to a queen suite. YAY! My room has a window that opens and its on the 15th floor. I couldnt believe the window actually opens! I put my head out and got some good shots but I thought they didnt let windows open when they are so high?

After recovering with some room service (before which the door man totally hit on me) I took to the streets to walk around in AMERICA! haha. Dont mind me. Anyway, yes, I passed a few people who wolf whistled at me (generally old men) and remembered that thats why I usually wear my ipod when I’m walking, so I put it in my ears and that was so much better. So I went down to what I thought was the waterfront, but there is a HUGE highway infront of it and I had no idea how to get there. I just walked along and then went back to the streets where I came across a dude jamming on the electric guirar and then a crew of B BOYS doing some breakdancing!! AWESOME!!

Looking forward to some major exploring tomorrow.
Photos on flickr soon.
