#NuunHTC Part 1: Seattle

27 Aug

I left Portland on the Bolt Bus Wednesday morning. I was headed to Seattle to meet my Nuun hood To Coast teammates for the first time!! SO EXCITING!! First off–the Bolt Bus was awesome! It was a direct ride from Portland downtown to Seattle downtown. There was Wi-Fi and power outlets. It was only a $10 fare. Hello people…I am NEVER driving to Seattle again!

I arrived in Seattle at 11:30am and meet up with some bloggers. We headed down to Pikes Place for lunch and checked out the Puget Sound.

Meghan B has a friend that works for Moving Comfort so Daanniieell came and picked us up. He took us to the Brooks/Moving Comfort HQ. They are in a temporary space right now but building a new office as we speak.

He gave us a tour. Showed us where all the magic happens! It was so fun especially because I wear Brooks shoes and Moving Comfort bras!!

We went back to Nuun HQ to catch a ride to the Garage where our first ice breaker activity was. Bowling, pool, and food. It was so fun meeting all the other bloggers and Nuun employees.

I looked around the room and it was like I KNEW everyone but in reality I really did not. We have been read each others blogs and following them on Twitter for months now. It was fun to finally get to meet them all IRL(in real life). I quickly got to know all of the awesome bloggers.
