Meeting Point: Factoria Mall, Bellevue, WA

Our trip was about to begin with the help of a new friend. Our destination is Leavenworth, which is 3 hours away from Seattle. It is a Bavarian small town built around Wenatchee River and close the Stevens Pass (a ski resort), which was our first stop. Arriving to Leavenworth, we admired the lights on trees that were still on and we couldn't wait  for the next day to come in order to take a walk in the town.

After a funny, dancing, but also little bit weird morning, we packed our things and we went to a better place with view in Wenatchee River. It was our "heaven" ! We couldn't believe it : the river and in the background the snowing mountains. Anyway, it was time to take advantage of the snowing scenery and go the closest winter sport club to do snow tubing!!! YEAAAAHHHH!!! We spent almost 2 hours there, and we couldn't stop laughing, screaming, but also feeling wet because of the cold weather (brrrrrrr... ), since we realized that  we were hungry! Lunch time at a completely Bavarian Bistro having sausages with beer! The food was delicious! Yummie! Afterwards, we took our first walk in the town. During the walk, we had our first wine tasting and tasting different kinds of olive oil and vinegar...!!!! Aaaaaahhhhhh!!!! 

However, the weather "ruined" our walk, so we went back the home to watch a movie... RIOOOOO!!!!  The soundtrack of the movie became the soundtrack of our trip too!!! The end of the day came with another one delicious meal at an Italian restaurant! Pffff.... I was full... "KEEP ROLLIN, ROLLIN, ROLLIN....! " Hahahahahahaha

After a dancing morning again, it was time for breakfast time. Yummieeeee for one more time! Next stop: Wenatchee River! the scenery was magic and peaceful! The feeling of being close to the water and looking around the snow was unique! Getting back to the house, we packed our things, loaded the car and had some rest before our next two stops. 1st STOP was a visit at the "37 Cellars", a winery up to the mountains with a very good wine, and the 2nd STOP was a visit at the "Silvara Vineyards" up to a hill with an amazing view. The wine was delicious! [http://www.37cellars.com/ and http://www.silvarawine.com/]


Back to the town, we made our last walk before going back home and ate lunch. However, it was time to hit the road back to Seattle. So, on the way back, apart from the fact of listening to beloved songs, we made two more stops. One, at the store "Alps" where someone can find a large variety of hot sauces, chocolates, candies, fudges etc., and a second one, at Stevens Pass again to make snow angels! 

Epilogue
