So, I've been trying to plan my next adventure to Seattle and New York, but I am at my wits end. I know it shouldn't be this hard just to book this shit, but I'm trying to find the most affordable rates on flights and hotels.
First Up: Seattle
I'm going in a few months, just for a couple days and I've never been before. I was thinking of renting a car, but after much debate and recommendations from friends, I decided to look for a hotel in Downtown Seattle and just walk or use public transportation if needed (and if all else is fails, there's always Uber right)? Finding a hotel doesn't seem that bad, it's just finding an affordable flight. Every time I chose a flight time it ends up raising $100 more each way, for the time I want. Otherwise, I'd have to fly out at 6am, which is not the bizness. I've been on Expedia, Hotels.com, and AAA with no luck. And can I just say that AAA really needs to update the travel section of their website? They don't really have many options to choose from when trying to narrow down the choices. Then again, that's probably a tactic so I would have to speak to a travel agent. I guess I can, but I like to do things on my own. Then again, it would probably make life much easier if I got some advice and help.
Well, wherever we end up staying at I'm sure it will be great. I'm so excited for this trip and I have this crazy craving for seafood - which is NOT like me, because I am not a seafood fan to begin with. Mainly because I only eat certain kinds - like crab, shrimp, some fish, and...well, I guess that's it. I don't like octopus or squid, not even calamari. I don't eat oysters because I think it looks like a vagina - and any seafood consumed raw - forget about it! I know...if you're a seafood lover, you're probably hating me right now, but hey, craving seafood is a step up for me. So maybe I'll surprise you and this trip may turn over a new leaf...OR not. I guess we will find out. Keep posted!
I also want to see the bubble gum wall. I wonder if that's walking distance from Downtown???
2018: New York
My son turns 18 this year. YES! 18! And he will be graduating in June. So I wanted to do a trip to New York to celebrate. We haven't been so we are excited to explore the town. Though we are still looking for places to go and things to do (Suggestions welcome please and thanks) we know one thing is for sure: We have to try the pizza! Well, this is true for any destination because I love pizza as much as people love tacos. But, I mean, everyone who has been to NY always says there is nothing like NY pizza. There are the obvious places that we want to see, like the Statue of Liberty and Time Square. Maybe a Broadway show? We're going in the spring, so I'm hoping that it's still cold. We really wanted to experience NY in the cold (is that weird)? It's probably a subliminal message from all the movies we watch.
If you've got some recommendations for Seattle or New York, please feel free to share them with me. I appreciate it more than you know!
Till next time!
