Tourist in my own city

Post Alley gum wall
I live fairly close to downtown Seattle, but I hardly visit. Why? Driving is a pain in the butt, and riding the bus takes some extra preparation I don't usually want to do. But there are so many things to experience in the Emerald City, and even though I've been to most of these places multiple times, this time was different - I took my friends from California to some of the must-sees and made a little photo diary along the way. (Can you tell I'm procrastinating on posting about China? It's just a little daunting.)

To quote our dear boy Macklemore, "my city's filthy." In the best way possible.



  1. I always love photo diary. nice pictures. Thanks Isabelle for visiting my blog and for the sweet thoughts. The necklace is not a current H&M find maybe a a month or so. Good luck.


  2. I always love getting to be a tourist in my own city and getting to see it from a different perspective! Seattle seems like a lovely place to be - would love to visit one day! :)

    1. The Underground Tour is $14 for students, probably around $20 for adults otherwise but I can't quite remember. It's something I think is worth going on once! and thank you!

  4. Hi Isabelle, thanks for taking us on this wonderful and animated tour of your city. It looks like a fantastic place to visit. Thanks for taking the time to stop by :)

  5. Love seeing all of these photos!! We want to visit Seattle at some point. :-)
