A while ago, I wrote about the Great Gum Wall of Seattle. Yummy. And in my quest to see unusual attractions, I was told to drive a bit north of the downtown Seattle core…to find the Emerald City’s Fremont Troll.
You wonder? It is an 18 foot high sculpture built by 4 Artists nearly 25 years ago. Their goal was to create something that would help clean up this area of the city, through art. It worked.
The Fremont Troll is a major attraction. And as you’ll see, young and old still like to climb on it, pose in front of it and just stare at it.
Jim Bamboulis has held several posts over the past 12 years, including National Sportscaster, Food Host and Writer, Talk Show Host, Olympic Researcher and Travel Film-maker.
Born and raised in Toronto, Jim learned early on that the combination of travel and food meant ultimate living. Combining his insatiable creative spirit and desire to document his travels, Jim took his unshakable travel bug and set off to explore. Add the fact that Jim also grew up in a Greek household and he learned that not only does Mom always make the best meals, but as importantly learned the importance of understanding and appreciating the countless beautiful cultures and the integral role food plays in every corner of the World.
In August 2009, Jim founded Travel Mammal, a site that brings together his travels and experiences (both good and terrifying) with the hope that others are inspired to share their own. We are all storytellers, especially when it comes to travel and food. He urges everyone to be inspired, explore and love the world and the people that share it with us. Or in other words, Live to Travel and travel to live!
