We try to make every trip an adventure, so we stuffed our backpacks and hopped an Amtrak to Seattle. Ted's award was another excuse to travel and enjoy life.
Always on a budget, we try to find affordable ways to live the high life. It turns out the train was cheaper than driving and since our hotel was within 3 miles of the station, we walked. What we hadn't anticipated were the hills. It seemed to me that it was 3 miles uphill to the hotel and 3 miles uphill back to the train station upon on our return. For those of you who think that isn't possible, I challenge you to place a 40 pound pack on your backs and retrace our steps. I'm not complaining though, we love a challenge and find any excuse to walk, albeit, it wasn't the smartest thing to do as I am still in the vulnerable stages of recovering from a herniated disc. It would appear this morning that I might have pissed the disc off, and it is getting a little revenge on me.

Neither of us are big eaters, so while traveling in cities, we hunt for happy hours. You get a large variety of smaller portions for a lot less money.
