Seattle & Portland Twin - Centre Holiday - October 2017

We had a great holiday! We had an excellent crew on our Virgin/Delta flights over to America. Our train journeys from Seattle to Portland and back were also excellent. The hotels in both locations were friendly with helpful staff. We particularly liked the Kimpton in Seattle and really enjoyed the free wine hour which was a lovely way to meet and get to know the other guests.

Both cities were excellent with a great range of museums, art galleries and shops. We took the Duck Tour in Seattle which takes you out on the water alongside the wealthy owners’ boathouses. We also enjoyed the ferry to Bainbridge Island which is an idyllic spot located just a mile long from which some of the richer residents commute into Seattle. The ferry only takes 30 minutes. We visited the Popular Culture museum which has a great section on Jimi Hendrix who was born in Seattle and visited just before he died.

Portland is also full of charm. Jill found a great street market and I visited Powell’s City of Books three times during our stay. It is the largest independent bookshop in America which takes up a whole block and is full of both new and used books. The staff were amazingly knowledgeable and helpful.

All-in-all we really enjoyed ourselves and once more benefited from two excellent walking tours early on in our stay which is a great way to get your bearings as well as tips on what to see and where to go.
