SEATTLE - THE PLACE TO LIVE.

 Huge unusual architecture. Downtown Seattle.

Huge unusual architecture. Downtown Seattle.


Seattle is going on a list on one of the cities I would love to live in one day! I can't wait to go back again. The mountains, the water, the people and infinite things to do in Seattle. I and my boyfriend both couldn't believe in the fact that people in Seattle are so frindly, so truly helpful and cheerful with a real smile. There's definitely a vibe of "live and let live" which is really cool, you can let your freak flag fly!

Did you know that Seattle gets on average of 158 days of sun? That's only 43%! Sounds like an absurd but it's totally worth going on an adventure!

6)    Museum of POP Culture

Once known as the Experience Music Project, the Museum of Pop Culture features everything from music, classic movies to science fiction. It even contains the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame where you can travel alongside the legendary Jimmy Hendrix and feel androgynous alien rock star, David Bowie. You will go on a virtual trip to the Indie game revolution, and try your hidden talents in the sound lab, where you can feel the blues, explore the tools of rock 'n' roll through electric guitars, drums, samplers, mixing consoles, and more. I spent there around 3 hours! You can't imagine how much fun I had!


7)    Local Underground and Sky trains!

No journey is done unless you take a ride in the local public transportation! Buses that give you a ride underground? Sky trains? Experience it in Seattle!

Personally, when I noticed buses underground I was quite shocked. About sky trains I've already heard in Singapore but buses underground? Never!

No rain can destroy a day in Seattle. Hiking in the rain in fun. It's an unforgettable moment when you have the possibility to stop and smell the rain and hear the surrounded forest's breathing. Enjoy this peaceful and calming moment to collect your thoughts. Focus on your breath and clear your mind.
