About Me

My photo
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 110 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

WASHINGTON, Seattle, View from 73rd Floor of Bank America


While most go to the Space Needle for a view of Seattle, I took the advice of the hostel and guidebook and went to the Bank America Building (Seattle's tallest) and looked at Seattle from the 73rd floor observation deck. Much higher and cheaper (only $5) than the Space Needle. Advice from the hostel always gives you the best advice travelers and usually the least expensive version.

WASHINGTON, Seattle, Kerry Park

7/4/11  Happy Independence Day

Caught the 13 bus to Kerry Park. Problem was the bus driver did not know where Kerry Park was. Lucky for me a girl on the bus gave me instructions. Only 2 blocks off the bus route. A very small park with a very big view overlooking Elliott Bay with views of the Space Needle and Mount Rainier.

WASHINGTON, Seattle, 4th of July Fireworks

Found out a great place to watch the fireworks that not too many people know about from girl working at the hostel. While over 40,000 were watching from Gas Works across the bay, I was watching from the other side high on a hill with a few hundred. Took me about 45 minutes to walk there and fireworks started at 10 pm and lasted until 10:45.
