I’ve been living in the St. Louis area for almost nine months. I think I’ve been here long enough now to have established some favorite local restaurants, coffee shops, entertainment venues, etc. Some of these are places I’ve just recently gone while others I went to before I even moved. Without further ado, here is a list of locations I love in my wonderful city. I’m not being paid by any of these businesses to promote them; sometimes I just say nice things for free. (Sadly, none of these photos are mine. All found on Google Images).
I have several other things to be doing right now. I have case notes for work to finish, I have a paper to write for school that I have put off for entirely too long, and there are dirty dishes in my sink.
But I am in love, and I need to tell you all about it.
There she is in all her glory: the Space Needle. No trip to Seattle would be complete without a visit to this famous structure. We were (almost literally) blown away by the sight of this beautiful landmark.
With San Francisco in the books, Emily and I were off to discover what Seattle had in store for us. Here’s a hint: it involved a lot of rain and coffee, two things we adore.
I interrupt your not-so-regularly scheduled blogging to bring you a different type of post. As a recent college graduate who has moved to a new city, I have learned more than I ever imagined was possible in the span of under two months. Now I feel it’s time to share some thoughts on my new adventures with our tens of readers. 🙂
A new day had begun. Continuing our exploration through the City by the Bay, Emily and I swung by Alamo Park. Here you can see some of the most famous Victorian era houses known as the “Painted Ladies.” These homes are featured in exterior shots on Full House. Look familiar?
Halfway through a particularly stressful semester, Emily and I welcomed spring break with open arms. A few months prior, we had booked a trip to two cities we wanted to see: San Francisco and Seattle. Other than the Golden Gate Bridge and the Space Needle, we didn’t have a whole lot on the agenda. That turned out to be the best thing for us. Let’s talk about San Francisco first…
After Ali and I booked our tour to London, Paris, and Rome, I couldn’t help but want to see even more places while I was in Europe. A flight from the U.S. to Europe is already so expensive, but flights within Europe are sometimes as cheap as $40, so it made sense to try to see as much as possible.
After doing some research, we found a tour that went to Mykonos and Santorini that began 2 days after our first tour ended. We spent a day in Athens on our own, and then began our 5 day tour with Travel Talk.
Of all the places Emily and I have been, I think it’s time we give some credit to the place where we built the foundation of our friendship: good ol’ Evansville, Indiana.
We often complain that there is nothing to do here, but we do have places in this little city that we love. Here are some of mine:
