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!
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.
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.

Capitol Hill is a neighborhood of Seattle where the state capitol building was supposed to be built. Imagine if Seattle was the state’s capital city? If the Pacific Northwest ever breaks away from the U.S. like so many local independence groups are discussing, maybe Capitol Hill will one day have its capitol building? It’s certainly one of the most diverse and fascinating neighborhoods to find in Seattle in my opinion.
