Snickie Goes West II

Slowly but surely I will recap my trip out West.

I spent 2 full days in Seattle and visited Pike Place Market, the Space Needle, Discovery Park, and Gasworks Park. I also got to meet my boyfriend’s brother, sister in law, and niece. The weather was amazing – sunny and 60.


After our time in Seattle wrapped up, we flew to Sacramento and then drove to Chico, CA, Ben’s hometown. Chico is a medium sized town northeast of Sacramento. I was really excited to see where Ben grew up and see all the Chico sights I had heard so much about. Ben’s parents were great hosts and made sure I hit all the Chico hot spots 🙂

Anyone ever been to Chico, CA?

The weather in Chico was also amazing. High 70s, low 80s, super sunny.

After Chico we made our way to Sacramento proper, continued on to the Sacramento burbs, and then I flew to San Diego. More pictures to come soon.

The entire trip was super relaxing. After some long work weeks, it feels like it was ages ago. However, I am still super happy to have all my memories and pictures from the fun.  I really enjoy traveling and so cherish all the places I have been and experiences I have had. This trip was made even more special by the people met and hospitality extended during the journey.

Snickie Goes West

Hello! Things have been quiet around here because I have been on vacation. Two weeks of vacation! Positively refreshing and relaxing.

This trip was a chance to meet the family of my wonderful boyfriend and spend time with a friend in San Diego. The added bonus was touring some cities and areas I have never been to.  I first made my way to Seattle, WA and then did a bit of California traveling, hitting Chico, Sacramento, and San Diego.  I am so glad I made this trip.  It was awesome.

Today, some photos from my time in Seattle. More pictures to follow!
