We have a 4 hour layover in Seattle on our way to Vancouver. I was a barista at Starbucks at the time. We love coffee. We love markets. And now, we are about to drag our suitcases and backpacks down to the Pike Place Market to see where it all started, to see the fresh tulips being bouquet, and to have an experience that we may not ever get to do again.
I was a little worried at first, oh no, what if we don’t make it back in time for our flight. What if the Uber is 30 minutes later than our expected arrival time. What if the Starbucks line is an hour long. What if I roll over someones toe with my suitcase. What if I can’t squeeze through crowd with my suitcase. What if. Forget the “what if’s” I am about to experience one of the coolest markets in America.
