Free Bus Tickets
We went down to the city for a walk around, as well as some things we had planned.
Firstly, we left the house and waited at the bus stop for the bus to arrive. Whilst waiting for the bus, a lovely lady gave us a box of Sugar Babies, an American candy, as she said we have to try them. We can confirm, they are delicious!
The bus was late and, when we got on, we had our $2.75 each ready.
The bus driver was kind enough to give us tickets for free!
We first went to Starbucks as the first Starbucks was opened in Seattle!
We didn’t think it was much different, other than the logo.
Curtis had a nitro cold brew, which he’s been wanting to try for a while. Kim had a cloud caramel macchiato.
The nitro cold brew looked like a Guinness, but tasted just like coffee that has gone cold. Kim’s caramel macchiato was good, though!
We later realised we had gone to the WRONG Starbucks and the first one was actually down the street, right where all the people were queuing. Guess we’l be heading there tomorrow.
We walked down a side street and saw a wall completely covered in chewing gum. This wall is world famous and, for some odd and disgusting reason, people stick their chewing gum on the wall and people come along and take photos of it. That being said, here is a photo;
We walked to the public market for a wander around. Being Saturday, it was absolutely rammed but great fun!
There are all sorts of things at the market.
There are food stalls, drink stalls, people selling homemade items, a bakery or two, wine tastings, model car shops & BBQ areas!
We found a wine tasting place and thought ‘why not?’.
For just $5, we each got to try 6 wines of different types. White, red and Rosé wine.
The man serving us was very knowledgeable, funny and helpful. We sat and played connect 4 with an incredible view whilst we drank some wine.
We wandered around a bit more and then found a bus stop to catch a bus home.
Our ticket was valid still so we were still able to ride for free!
We got back to the apartment and Curtis watched the Leafs game whilst Kim did some laundry.
After the game, we went to get something for the next few dinners from the supermarket. We met some really nice people at the store, too, which was lovely.
Thai Green Curry
We decided on Thai green curry for dinner, so we made that when we arrived home.
Dinner was delicious! We then watched some TV before heading to bed as we have another fun filled day tomorrow!
