If you love sweets like I do you then Seattle’s Hello Robin is the place to go. Not only does Hello Robin serve fresh, warm and soft baked cookies but they also serve Seattle’s very own Molly Moons Ice Cream. Robin and Moons become a wonderful combination when you order the Hello Robin ice cream sandwich pictured above. I was lucky enough to grab one of the legendary Mackles’more (Named after Seattle rapper Macklemore) cookies right as they were coming out of the oven. The Mackles’more cookie is made with chocolate chip cookie, graham cracker, and marshmallows. So Good!
If you’re traveling through Seattle and looking for one of those not so secret but cool spots that most know about but few have been, then you should check out Moore Coffee located in the heart of downtown Seattle. What I like about Moore is the intimate atmosphere and relaxing décor.
Moore Coffee X 1930 2nd Ave.Seattle, WA 98101
Not only does Moore produce an assortment of delicious hot and cold caffeinated beverages but they also have a small kitchen that creates Instagram worthy breakfast waffles and sandwiches. My favorite choice to order is the Strawberry Shortcake waffle, which has fresh strawberries that are smothered in whipped cream and hot Matcha green tea latte.

Last year I did a video with owners Kekoa and Domingo as a part of #SeaNouns (Seattle + nouns) check out the video below.
My last destination in #Travels2Europe is Budapest. The Hungarian capital Budapest was really two cities separated by the Danube River. The two cities Buda and Pest, merged together in 1873 making it the largest city in the European Union.
One of the things I love about Budapest is the classic architecture. The city is fill with arches, symmetry and domes dating back to the 1800’s. If you are visiting for the first time like myself I would suggest eating at the local favorite Spíler. Spíler is Located in the Gozsdu district which is one of Budapest biggest attractions.
Istanbul is now one of my favorite places to visit because of its rich history and mixed influence of cultures. Turkey is located at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, which makes it a country of rich and diverse foods. To be honest, Istanbul has some of the best street food I’ve ever tasted. Foods like simit, kabaps, watermelon, chestnuts and fresh roasted corn on the cob were some of my favorite.
Visitors can get around very easily by tram and metro connection, but I recommend walking by foot to take photos of the beautiful scenery. Prices on pretty much everything are inexpensive and if you shop at certain markets you can barter on prices getting an even better deal on your purchases.

Tomorrow, I go on a train adventure from Seattle to Portland sponsored by TravelPortland.com, Amtrak Cascades and Timbuk2.

This is a unique Amtrak train and has been completely redesigned to give you the Portland experience. This experience includes newly upholstered seats, art, food and beverages from beloved Portland retailers.
