Stuart doesn’t like to talk about it but it took him far too long to take me in to Seattle. Too long, as in 5 years. He grew up in the area and had never really been in to the city either so was in no hurry to take me to what has become one of our most favourite places on earth. There’s a lot to see and do – eat, smell, hear, experience – in Seattle. It’s a full sensory experience. After that first trip into the city we couldn’t stay away.
Moving to California in 2009 was a dream come true for me – that’s a phrase I’ll always use when talking about living in California. I’m not sure that there’s a more exciting and fun place than the Monterey Bay area. Although it was only an hour from where we lived in Hayward, CA it felt like we’d traveled to the land of Summer Holiday, which is pretty magical 😉
