Seattle Vacation: Woodland Park Zoo

Wednesday, July 1, 2009

Most of the time while on vacations I am a gogogo person who likes to see everything and do everything humanly possible…but sometimes after a long 7 days of vacation and a lot of stress at work and home a girl just needs to have a lazy day!

The day started out with a trip to the Woodland Park Zoo. It’s a really nice zoo and there are lots of exhibits. My favorite was the adorable red panda (who unfortunately was sleeping in a tree, but was cute nonetheless) and the orangutan who seemed to have dressed himself up like a Star Wars Jedi…

After a few hours of wandering the grounds I headed back and chilled with my friend Scott. We got some Pho for dinner and later got some Starbucks (it started in Seattle, so it totally is local…) and spent a pretty quiet night in. A good relaxing night to end off the first…uh second…no, third…part of my trip.

Tomorrow morning I leave Seattle for New York City!

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
