Viv and the troll (fremont Troll)

I saw on my updates that Vivian was coming to Seattle. I welcomed her to the site and told her if i could be of help on her upcoming trip to let me know. She said she would love to meet if possible and other questions were asked/answered for local info and to do list. When the time came for her visit i realized i had a little bit of time i could make in my schedule to meetup. I decided getting her settled into the city would be most helpful to her(always nice to be met at an airport and given some ideas of what to do and visualize distances and such). I picked her up from the airport around 3:30pm i believe and gave her a tour of some places better accessed by car and a look around different Seattle neighborhoods.

After showing her what directions to head for the other events she had planned for the weekend, we ended up in West Seattle after checking out the Alki Beach area and we stopped for some Teriyaki (Viv's treat:)  Good stuff :)

Now feeling totally stuffed, we wrapped up the evening with some hill walking and stretched our legs a bit(work off some of the food) along the end of the Seattle waterfront down towards the Spaghetti Factory. Took some cool photos(check out great pics at bottom of the space needle) and i took a group photo for another group from california. We decided to call it an evening and i drove Vivian back up the road to her Hostel (Green Tortoise) (check her page soon for a review perhaps). We said "nice to meet u" and all that good stuff and I left her with some snacks/drinks for her walking excursions the next few days and that was that! :)

It Was great to meet  Vivian, she is very nice and calm, easy to get along with and not picky.  I cant meet everyone, but this time it worked out and i was able to meet a cool person and help out a fellow traveler. :) Now i have to go leave a nice vouch for sure.
