Seattle | Travel Diary

WORDS + VISUALS BY ANASHE BARTON / @ANASHEBARTON

Spring break is a time to travel to tropical places, catch rays of sun, and swim all day. Most people go to Cabo, Florida, or lay out by the pool for a vacation that lasts around seven days. But, not me.


Instead, I took a trip to Seattle, which is a place I've been wanting to visit since I was young. Though no pineapple floats, I was enamored with this jewel of a city.


This gem of a city captured my heart with its brick buildings, crisp air, and bustling life. Seattle is a town you want to walk through, so you don't miss out on its fantastic architecture, little shops, and cute street corners.

As a Californian, the vibe to me in Seattle felt way more lively, and I found that people were very down to earth. Everyone I met was extremely nice and always had a local suggestion for me to try out.
Also. Check out Seattle's coffee scene. It's insane.

That being said, I am going to go cry because I have to finish school before moving there.

Seattle, stay gold.

And people, don't be afraid of the rain.
