I recently got a my first chance to go to Seattle with the Windows Champions Summit! And I took the #TravelingBunny on his (or her) first trip! I may be in love with Seattle and we already knew that I am in love with Microsoft.
Microsoft treated us right! They had us down in the Ballard area of Seattle and put us up at Hotel Ballard. We are talking seriously posh and hip! The design of the hotel is great but beyond that the linens and service were top notch! And do you see that bath tub? It was huge and so luxe.
But the focus of the trip was Microsoft! I got to go to Microsoft’s research area!!! I saw dancing robots and a huge image project! Then we popped over to their main campus and had some great time learning about some Skype tools and Xbox One. I even got to see their coffee shop but then we got to go to the campus store! Yes, I got my geek on;).
We also got some great time to soak up Ballard and the Seattle are with my fabulous Lumia Icon. They have a great Farmer’s Market with great flower vendors. The food was fabulous! There was a lot of farm to table places including a restaurant with the farm on the roof;).
I also got to visit Snoqualmie Falls! What a gorgeous area. They also had a fabulous restaurant up there. The thing about our venture up there was just how gorgeous the drive was. Great views from the freeway all the way up.
I think I have fallen for Seattle. Thanks Microsoft for bringing me up! I am sure you will hear more about my trip and the fabulous things I heard about!
And yes, Microsoft took me up there but all thoughts and opinions are mine alone!
