Where I stayed
At Oslo Airport we checked in 3 items; 2 bags full of clothes and a camera tripod. Here they are in our hotel room in Seattle. Can you spot the problem?!
We boarded our flight with a few items of carry-on (the valuables) and checked in the rest. Upon arrival in Seattle all that was left of that was our carry-on and 1 of the bags with clothes. Frank also lost his checked-in luggage, so now all we have for clothing is one bag of women's garments. We arrived on sunday afternoon and it is now monday evening. If the bags are not located soon then we will have to work out how good we all look in skirts and low-cut tops.
So thanks to NorthWest Airlines we have now been spending quite a lot of time at Macy's shopping for the essentials like underwear and socks :D Of course no holiday is complete without some NON-essential shopping, so now we are also the proud owners of a new wide-angle lens for Martijn's camera
When not shopping we have however had a nice time seeing the sights of Seattle by means of 'Ride The Ducks'. Which, for the people not in the know, is a tour in an amphibious vehicle. We can highly recommend that if you ever find yourself in Seattle with 2 hours spare and can handle an insane guy behind the wheel both on land and water.
After 'riding the duck' we went to The Sci-Fi Museum And Hall Of Fame. This is an amazingly cool collection of sci-fi props and information about everything from Planet Of The Apes to Star Trek and from Asimov to Lucas.
All of this is close to the Space Needle, a tower that has become a Seattle landmark, which we went back to in the evening for a fancy dinner in the revolving restaurant. After dinner we went up to the observation deck and took some pictures as the sun was setting over Seattle. Thus completing a nice full day of being a tourist.
