Seattle Winter vs. Paul - Round 2

Here we go, I haven't even gotten a chance to put (or even sort) some of the pictures from my trip through Turkey and Germany with Filiz when there's more travel news!

I just booked a ticket to Seattle in February!! Returning to the Emerald City after - wow, has it already been five months? I'll be missing Valentine's Day (which this year is actually a shame!) and President's day, but I'll sure be there for Seattle's fearsome winter! Sunset at 4pm and everything. Maybe I'm lucky and it's not as cold as last year, but I won't bet on it.

Why would I want to go to Seattle during such an awful time? Well, aside for the obvious reasons: As rough as the weather might be on your soul, the people give me a warm feeling in my heart. Funny enough, most of the people I'm talking about aren't even American or from Seattle, but the city brings all these nice people together.

Also, Seattle winter is the time when people crowd into tiny coffee shops and try to warm their souls on a hot drink more than ever. There are a couple of characteristics and stories about Seattle that I don't feel I've sufficiently told with my camera, this is one I am trying to cover. If I'm successful, you'll see the pics on my new portfolio site: and of course here - in all their randomness!
