A couple of weeks ago, my girlfriend Jen and I went to Seattle for a long weekend. When we were brainstorming about which cities to visit, Seattle was top on our list! Neither of us had been to the Pacific Northwest prior to this trip, so we dived right in. [Side note: Jen and I studied abroad in Seville, Spain our junior year of college so needless to say, we are lifelong travel partners!]. Jen and I are both planners and as it so happens, neither of us had planned anything for this trip other than the working itinerary I had managed to put together on my flight. With this guide book (which was great), we ended up planning the trip together once we got there.
