Missed Rick…….off to Chicago!!

I had a chance to spend the morning walking around Edmonds. I knew very little about Edmonds except that it is where Rick Steves lives and works out of.

We boarded the Empire Builder train in Edmonds rather than Seattle. We spent the prior night within walking distance of Europe Through the Back Door. Since the train did not leave until the evening, I had a chance to spend the morning walking around Edmonds. I knew very little about Edmonds except that it is where Rick Steves lives and works out of. It was a nice place though. I spent about 30 minutes walking around ETTBD, but Rick was not around. As I expected, he’s usually in Europe working on his guidebooks.

I grew up in a small borough outside of a small city in eastern Pennsylvania. As soon as I got my driver's license, I started going to see my favorite rock bands (Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Pearl Jam, Slayer, Sleater-Kinney to name a few) and quickly realized that I wanted to spend as much time traveling as possible. After earning my bachelor's degree in Management/Marketing from Penn State University, I started traveling overseas and have since traveled to 38 countries spanning 5 different continents. I'm an urban explorer who loves using public transportation. My 4 favorite American cities are New York, San Francisco, Washington, D.C. & Boston. I'm a lover of food and culture who has been to every state except Alaska. Brazil and Russia are at the top of my bucket list. If you need advice on where to get the best pizza or French macarons, I'd love to help!
