I've recently booked a holiday to Vancouver in June to visit some friends, and also experience a different country and city, never been to Canada before.
I'm there for 2 weeks. My parents are quite reluctant about me going at 25, think it's a general parents' concern to see their child leave the country so somewhere unknown.
To make the most of the time I'll be there, i'm really interested in viewing the space needle and a few other sights in Seattle, and though plane or train are both good options to get there from Vancouver, I'm really keen to get there by driving, heck; driving in a different country with a different car and experiencing the sights, even solo, sounds like a great journey.
From what I understand, i'll need to drive across a border between the states, will I need to have any paperwork completed to let me into Seattle from Vancouver and back? Is the drive going to be straight forward or complicated? I've 5 years driving experience across the UK and hope this is enough for a my trip planned. Is it possible to make it there and back in one day, or would I look at taking two days round trip to complete it, and any UK drivers had experience doing this trip, will i need specific documents etc? is there a good route to take that i can take regular stop off's to view sights etc on the way?
Any advice or thoughts you can shed would be appreciated, I'll be doing the trip solo but guess it'll be good fun :-)
