Rick Steves European Travel Festival! Anyone else going?
Posted November 9th, 2011 - 10:03 pm by from Portland, United States (Permalink)
Hello All!

I am planning a visit to the central Salish Sea region next week, centering largely around our friend Ricks travel fest: http://www.ricksteves.com/news/classes/nov11_menu.htm I would love to meet up with some of you cool folks at the festival & elsewhere as I wander!
I am also still looking for a CS host in/near Port Townsend for Friday November 18th and in either the Seattle or Olympia areas for Saturday November 19th - may I stay with you?

My plan is to leave Portland early in the evening of Thursday November 17th. I have booked a bed at the Olympic Hostel in Port Townsend for that night as I have wanted to stay there for years and this may very well be my last chance as sadly they will be closing their doors at the end of November...

Friday the 18th is my main day to explore over on the Olympic Peninsula side. I definitely want to wander around Port Townsend, checking out the library (top-rated in the state!) the co-op & this neat place: http://www.ptbr.org A visit to Port Angeles & at least a drive up Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Park seems likely.

Saturday is the "Rick Steves European Travel Festival in Edmonds" = Woohoo! That evening & early Sunday I will be in either Seattle or Olympia before heading back to Portland.

If you would like to meet up with me anywhere along this route, want to host me Friday or Saturday night, have tips for how I can best use my visit up your way - or otherwise want to - please reply here or send me a private message.

I hope to see you soon!
