City exploring and cheesecake

Today is our second to last day. We got the train into Seattle CBD and headed Pikes Place, Seattle’s original farmers market (arguably the most famous tourist attraction in the city. We even got to visit the original Starbucks. Although today I am happy to report I actually didn’t have to drink any Starbucks coffee. Finally, after 10 days I visited a barista who knew how to make a Piccolo (thank the lord). I’d rate it a 5/10, nothing like the Melbourne brews I have become accustomed too, but better than the 2/10 I have had to knock back from Starbucks.

After our coffee fuel, we walked across the city to the Space Needed, Seattle’s signature building, which offers 360 views of the city and its surrounding area.

After ticking off the two biggest tourist attractions, we spent the rest of the day meandering through the streets of Seattle. Including Gum Wall, under Pikes Place Market,  which as the name suggests is a wall covered in chewing gum. Apparently quite a tourist attraction.

 

After clocking up over 25k worth of steps, we devoured 3 cheesecakes at Cheesecake Factory, who arguably the best cheesecakes known to man.

We slept well that night.
