Sorry for the long absence,

I have been looking for jobs the last couple weeks, got my wisdom teeth extracted and other problems. So bear with me. I have photos and reviews to share with you once I’m better!

I got a new camera! My new Canon eos 60d will be taking my pictures as I explore more of Seattle this summer. Here is something I took while I was experimenting with it!

a new way to get around Cascadia

The “BoltBus” is a new company to compete with Amtrak service for tickets as cheap as 6$ if you buy tickets early online. The ride is just as fast as driving or taking rail, it looks like a clean, quick and safe coach between Seattle’s International District Station and downtown Portland. There is wifi, legroom and a bathroom of course. It sounds like BoltBus is nothing like the Greyhound but something much nicer. That said, if Amtrak was faster and between 15$ and 20$, I would take the train in a heartbeat.

The Pacific Northwest is truly leading the country (outside the Northeast) in frugal, carless living. Every year Cascadia becomes an easier place to get around without a car. Click on the links below for more information.

Chace’s Pancake Corral

Very loud and lively, Chace’s is a fun family restaurant for a morning you have a lot of time. You can’t make reservations, but particularly on Saturday and Sunday mornings, Chace’s has 30-50minute wait. The food is really good ranging from traditional pancakes, french toast and blintzes to eggs benedict, the “ladies plate” and chicken fired steak. The coffee is only drip coffee and is terrible, the hot cocoa is just a instant packet, but it is a fun experience. This place is affordable, but a family of four can ring you up to $50.

Finally back in Seattle. Home sweet home. Expect a food review from a place in this city as early as tomorrow. I’m going to bed soon with rain pattering on my window. God I love it here. SavvySeattle

Rush hour in a Seattle subway station. Yes, within a few stations the trains and buses run together… it’s weird I know. It won’t be like this for much longer though. With the new rail lines north to Everett, south to Federal Way and east to Redmond with Ballard and West Seattle soon to start planning/constructing a rail line, this tunnel will be trains only. I can imagine the buses being directed to a bus station they could build near King Street Station.

British Columbia by sedats 

Rugged mountains are less than 2 hours away from the city, but British Columbia isn’t much further. So much to do in Seattle, but even more do to outside in the rainforests, mountains, deserts and flat grassland.
