My BFF and I had decided to go on two 2-week long trips back in 2002. Week one was spent in Chicago and 2 other friends had joined us. We had so much fun we didn't want to leave. I loved everything about it that I've been back a 2nd time since.
Week two was spent in Seattle (with 2 side trips to Canada; Victoria & Vancouver). Seattle was SO BORING, it was awful! I can see why Seattle is the suicide capital of the nation. I hate it! On the other hand, I really did like our side trips to Victoria & Vancouver. We had so much fun in Vancouver. And in Victoria we caught a cool free concert by Vancouver resident Bif Naked. FYI, Bif Naked was famous during the grunge era.
In Seattle, I really wanted to leave early, but it was too much of a hassle to switch flights. We decided to wait it out and was so missing L.A. Don't get me wrong, Seattle is a beautiful city, but it's NOT a FUN city. I wouldn't mind going back, but only for a few days.
