Seattle Trip Highlights – Pike Place Market & Water Taxi

The last time I visited Seattle was five years ago when I was still studying in Vancouver. I went down to Seattle just to visit an old friend from childhood. What I knew about Seattle back then included: 1) it is where Starbucks was founded, 2) its famous landmark, Space Needle, 3) it is a rain city just like Vancouver, 4) Vancouverites like traveling south of the border for shopping sprees, and 5) it has a prestigious school, University of Washington, just north of downtown. What I didn’t know was that every summer, it attracts thousands of visitors by hosting the biggest gaming event in North America. As a video game addict, Kev was longing to attend PAX Prime for the first time. Thinking that it would be a great chance to have a proper tour in Seattle and at the same time, check out what PAX Prime is really about, I agreed to accompany him. That’s what brought us to Seattle, also known as the Emerald City, this summer.
