Washington State Road Trip

After days and days of searching and researching we have booked our next vacation which is going to be a road trip1 through Washington state. I wanted to do this kind of trip for a long time now and I we think Aroshka is going to be old enough to handle some long rides in the car. But we decided not to get too ambitious on his account, so the trip consists of only 3 locations.

On the morning of Wednesday, June 12th, we fly2 out to Seattle, Washington. We rent the car3 at the airport and proceed to drive to a town called Port Angeles, Washington, located on the northern side of Olympic National Park. We are going to spend 4 nights4 here exploring the area and the national park.

On Sunday, June 16th, we drive to Mount Rainier National Park. On our way we plan to drive through Olympia, the capital of Washington state. We’re going to spend 3 nights5 inside the national park.

On Wednesday, June 19th, we drive to our final destination — Seattle, where we’re going to spend another 3 nights6 at one of the Hilton hotels that we booked for points.

We’re hoping this is going to be as fun of a vacation as all our previous road trips of this kind were.
