I officially made it through my second business trip! My first one was during my second week of work in Sonoma, CA, so I really had no idea what to expect. This one I have been preparing for since January, so I definitely had a better grasp of what was going on and more personal responsibilities! I’ve been excited for the location since I’ve always wanted to go to Seattle, but a little nervous of the meeting in general. Luckily, everything turned out great and the meeting was a success!
It was a short trip – leaving Thursday really early in the morning, getting to Seattle by lunch and then leaving Saturday morning. My co-worker and I had a few hours free after we got in so it was very nice to get out and enjoy the nice weather and see some of the Seattle sights!
We walked to Pike Place Market.
Unfortunately didn’t see them throw any fish – disappointed!
But we did see the gorgeous mountains in the background. Why can’t Wisconsin have any of these?!?
We walked by the waterfront.
Saw possibly the first (?) Starbucks. It looked old anyways so I’ll say it was the first.
Our hotel was very nice – big comfy bed along with a separate sitting room.
And a view of the water!
And of the other downtown sights.
Thursday was the only day I got my camera out for fun pictures since by the time the meeting was over on Friday it was raining and almost dark. All in all, I am in love with the city and definitely want to come back! I’m thinking a trip that will take me from Vancouver to Seattle to Portland would be a great getaway :). Luckily the plan is for me to keep coming back for this meeting every year – so I should be back soon!
More on my HILLY Saturday morning run in my next post!
