The Most Fun I’ve Ever Had At A Museum

WARNING: PICTURE HEAVY POST COMING!!!!!

I only had one day to spend sightseeing in Seattle. I did the obligatory trip to the Pike Place Market and saw them throwing fish and then I had the rest of the afternoon available. I was going to go on a ferry but it was cold, raining and windy (even for Seattle standards). Looking for other things to do, I asked our wonderful group of readers for suggestions before the trip. Here’s one of the replies.

Now the name sounded interesting but I didn’t know if I’d have the time to visit. When I saw that the weather would be bad, I read more about the museum right before my trip. I almost fainted as it looked like I found Geek Nirvana. Continue reading “The Most Fun I’ve Ever Had At A Museum”

You Might Soon Be Able To Drop Off Or Meet Your Family & Friends At The Airport Gate Again!

Ah, the good ol’ pre-9/11 days of air travel, when you could go through security with a baseball bat and without taking your shoes off. You could even stay with your loved ones before they got onto the plane or meet them at the gate when they arrived!

Well, the first one isn’t happening any time soon, and the second one won’t happen unless you pay for TSA Pre-Check. But the third and fourth ones COULD become a possibility in the not-too-distant future, if a certain TSA experiment works out well.

It Pays To Have A Guide To Take You Around Pike Place Market

During my visit to Seattle, I had the better part of a day to see a city that I’d never visited before. While I knew about Seattle, I had no idea what there was to see there. Thanks to our readers, I was tipped of about the MoPOP (Museum of Pop Culture) and wasn’t missing out on a chance to visit. However, that’s not really something that screams SEATTLE!!! It does scream YOU’RE A HUGE NERD, which is something I’ll totally agree with and, frankly, am 100% OK with. But I wanted to do something that I associated with Seattle, besides Starbucks.
