There are quite a few cities here in Washington state that look practically just like cities in Europe.

Don’t laugh at me, but in the wintertime when it’s very foggy outside before the sun rises, I pretend that I am living in some English town, like London. I’ve never been to London, mind you, but I do know they have thick fog over there across the pond.

I think my heart yearns to live somewhere in Europe, somewhere far away from here. Since I’m too broke to go gallivanting on a European vacation, I practice the second best thing: Travel to cities across Washington and just fantasize that I am on another continent.


Take for instance, these 5 Washington state cities below that remind me so much of European cities in Norway, Ireland, Scotland, Greece, and Germany. They are almost dead ringers for each other! There are so many other beautiful cities in Washington that I could compare to a city in Europe, but I would be here listing them all day!
