It’s been a week since my parents left (they visited for 30 days). It was great having them around. If you’ve been following my twitter updates, you’d probably know that it was a bit hectic trying to balance work, parents, and a bit of social life. No matter how crazy life was, though, it was absolutely fantastic having my parents (Giorgos and Fotini) around. I haven’t lived under the same roof with them for so long (since I left home at the age of 18). Yes, I was visiting in between academic years but I was always just a visitor/guest :-) It worked out really really well and I enjoyed every moment of it. I am now looking forward to their next visit! :-))
Here are some photographs (from the MANY… ~950) documenting their visit.
We walked a LOT around parks in Seattle.
Our very brief visit in Vancouver
At the Pike Market (and random encounters)
My parents love flowers, trees, nature…
Dinner with some friends
Folk balkan dancing at the Seattle Center (that was soooo random :-)
Leavenworth – Walla Walla – Portland
Freemont, Ballard, and the Docks
My mother liked the big tracks in the US :-)
Giorgos “TopGun” Parastatidis (at the Museum of Flight), Concorde, and Air Force One
Seattle as seen from Queen Anne
Last dinner in Seattle (sushi at Wasabi Bistro) on my parents’ 37th wedding anniversary. Amazing!
I am now looking forward to their visit again and, hopefully, I can persuade my brother too! ;-) Fillipos… Are you reading this?!!!
