I get to travel for my work at least a few times a year. While most people say business travel – these days, travel in general – sucks, I say make it fun. Take the extra day or two before or after the work part of the trip and enjoy a place you may not have thought to go. I’ve been to Seattle probably ten times in my life and I always enjoy it. The food is great, the people are awesome, and it’s just a fun city.
I didn’t have a lot of time on this trip, but I took the evenings after the work part of my day and enjoyed the heck out of them. This time in Seattle I decided to go on the Ferris wheel down by the waterfront.
That’s a glass of wine in a sippy cup. Why they put the wine in a sippy cup but not the beers the couple behind me got, I have no idea. I had the whole car to myself and I giggled the entire three turns around.
Later in the week, I rode to the top of the Columbia Center where they have a 360-degree view of Seattle. The elevator was a complete marvel – there was a movie on all sides that made you feel like you were in the set.
The tower is 73 floors up.
