After dropping her off, we headed to the airport. Parking was mostly pain-less, and getting through the lines and security didn't take long at all. We were on a flight to Dallas, which took about 3 hours. And then on to Seattle, Washington! That flight was actually uncomfortable, crowded, and way too long. However, the view as we began our descent was breath-taking.
The cab ride was a first for me, as well. Despite living in a big city, I've never had the need to utilize a taxi. It was interesting and exciting, and I enjoyed looking out the windows at everything we passed by. $42 later, we were at our hotel, which was very small but comfortable. A coffee shop took up the bottom floor of the place, filling it with the amazingly wonderful scent of brewing coffee. We asked the hotel manager for suggestions regarding a place to eat that was also within walking distance. He pointed us to Jasmine, which was literally right around the corner.
Jasmine was a chic Japanese lounge, where we enjoyed delicious sushi and an easy-going atmosphere. The waiter was originally from Arlington, Texas. We're everywhere!
After sushi, we headed back to our hotel, where we relaxed and slept, excited for the first big PAX day to come!
