Seattle Escape

November 20, 2014

I have been just slightly obsessed with hats lately, I just love them with the chilly weather & they are perfect for keeping my wild hair tame in the wind. So when we headed off to Seattle for the weekend I made sure to pack this grey number that I snagged at the airport in Australia (of all places) for less than $20...I guess it pays to travel to locations whose off season is our current season!

 

The city of Seattle is absolutely beautiful, both their skyline and the surrounding areas which are so lush & green. I personally love rainy weather so the overcast skies and misty weather didn't bother me on bit. It was perfect for lazy breakfasts sipping coffee, hearty dinners and exploring hidden bars with the hus.

Our last few days in Sydney were bittersweet, although we were enjoying every moment we were also looking forward to coming home. After 3 countries in 3 weeks we definitely had reached our maximum time away from our little monkey. Although...this view definitely made it a little easier.

Bondi Beach was every bit as stunning as we read about, maybe even more so in person. Truly breathtaking and borderline unreal - talk about a location for a lunch meeting (have I mentioned I love my job?)!

Once our work day was done we ventured out on a harbor cruise taking in the sights of the city skyline, Opera House (which wasn't as spectacular as I thought it would  be) and the bridge.

Coming back just in time to take in our final sunset and enjoy a dinner out to celebrate my birthday...cupcake and all.

Such a perfect ending to a once-in-a-lifetime trip.

Next up after Brisbane was Sydney where we took every spare moment to explore as much as possible (which is endless).

 

Our first stop was of course the harbor with the stunning city views, Opera House, bridge and waterfront shops & restaurants. 

We then wandered into the city to explore the downtown area which was filled with historic architecture, high end boutiques & (what we learned during our stay) some pretty freakin' fabulous eateries.

Sydney Part II will be live tomorrow (I promise...no really...it will be).
