Discuss these topics with your travel partner(s) before finalizing your travels, to ensure that you’re both looking to get the same thing out of your travels together. Figure out how each of you likes to travel, discuss budget issues like the level of luxury you’d like to experience, how much (or how little) you’d like to do each day, and how much time you want to spend together every day, and a few others. Having these quick chats with your travel companions can make traveling together much smoother, keep you both safe, happy, and preserve friendships and relationships.

During the first leg of our time in Seattle, we stayed at Grand Hyatt Seattle’s Emerald Suite, so named not because there is any emerald coloring within the suite, but rather as it’s located within the Emerald City, aka Seattle! This spacious, 1,000 ft² suite on the upper floors of the hotel has stunning views of Puget Sound, despite being about 5 blocks back from the water. We loved our stay, and how conveniently close to downtown Seattle it was. From the breathtaking views visible from the Emerald Suite and the ample in-room amenities to the comfort and convenience of the hotel itself, Grand Hyatt Seattle’s Emerald Suite is a one of a kind treat in the Emerald City.

Quite literally, you can more easily travel and explore the world! Here’s how to quickly learn another language, including tips on how to select study aids, studying strategies, and reasons why learning another language is one of the best possible investments you can make in your own life.

The Four Seasons Hotel Seattle was one of the most beautiful hotels we’ve ever visited. Situated along Puget Sound, this tranquil hotel was our home away from home for the final evening of our time in Seattle. We witnessed one of the most beautiful sunsets we’ve ever seen over the Sound from the hotel’s infinity pool deck, savored culinary delights at Goldfinch Tavern, received world-class service from every hotel staff we encountered, and were positively pampered with a full range of amenities that Four Seasons Hotels are famous for all over the world.
