In fact this is just my kinda place, nothing opens untill 10, 11 on mondays. Allowing everyone lots of lay ins! Perfect!
The hostel is cool, very relaxed which is nice. The last one was very much a business, this is a home!!
Anyway my geek dreams have been fulfilled. I went to this experience music project and a science fiction museum where i got to see kurt cobains fender that he used in the smells like teen spirit video, and the hoverboard thing used in back to the future 2!
The whole facility was 'no photos'. I naturally abused this and am now a master of covert photo taking!! And have many a photo of original star wars props that and donatello the teenage mutant hero turtle. Life size and everyhing!!
They were both really cool places, i'd never have thought it possible but i stayed in there all day.
Then i headed to the top of the space needle and checked out seattles skyline and watched the sunset over elliott bay. It was beautiful. I love citites at night!!
The next day wandered around the main city centre and did a little shopping. HAd to be done at some point!! After this i headed to a science museum. Every film should have a 3d option! It was really cool. Although the glasses are so not a good look.
In the evening i went on a boat tour and cruised around. Walking back to the hostel through a huge market place that i'm staying opposite with terrifyingly huge fish. I knew there was reason i didn't go in the sea!
Seattle has good music everywhere you go. With Jimi Hendrix and kurt cobain both being from here everyone seems to play this on the radio alot. I'm not complaining.
Today i'm off to an aquarium. I bought this city pass for like 40 dollars and it lets you into so many things! It's wicked.
One last thing, it's freezing here. Te front of the paper said 'Colder than Siberia' and no i am not lying!! I want sunshine!! Anyway hopefully it'll get warmer when get to portland but first lots more to do!
