Travel Postcard: SEATTLE-Gum Wall, EMP Museum, & Harbor Tour

Welcome back friends,

The adventure continues as I show you around the city of Seattle. Seattle is known for its museums, bustling markets, crisp water, and friendly locals. Today, Ayesha and I explored around town and took a tour of the harbor.

Our first stop, Experience Music Project Museum. The featured image of this post is my cousin and I sharing a good smile in front of the colorful facade of the EMP museum. The outside of the museum was just as spectacular as the inside. As we toured the various rooms, we read the start-up stories behind legends such as Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain.

Favorite Quote: “When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.” – Jimi Hendrix

No traveling experience is complete without acting like a complete tourist. So our next stop was the famous “Gum Wall,” of Post-Alley. This wall is nestled within Pike Place Market and is a crowd favorite. Equally creative and germ-inducing, we both had a great laugh while snapping these photos.

Last Stop: Our final attraction was to take a harbor tour of Seattle. After a long day of walking around the city and visiting all the venues mentioned earlier, we needed a mini-break out on the water. We saw the skyline of downtown Seattle from the water along with the famous Mt. Rainier. Its crazy to think that in the city the temperature was in the high 70’s -low 80’s, whereas the temperature near Mt. Rainier was ~10 degrees Fahrenheit!

Our short adventure in the state of Washington has ended. I am so thankful that I got to spend quality time with my cousin and celebrate her success! I wish her nothing but the best in her future endeavors. Cheers to many more trips together down the road. 🙂
