Quires dar una paseo hasta Seattle?

sounds like understandible mainstream colloquial wetback mexican spanish to me!

In traditional mexican spanish, pasearse means to "go around", for example, a city

in contrast to the verb viajar which is to travel to a city. Pasearse has to do with the
mexican sense of having a good time, it certainly does not imply one is going there to
look for a job. Qieres dar un paseo hasta Seattle means something along the lines of:

Do you want to go on a jaunt to Seattle'

Quires dar una paseo hasta Seattle?
corrections: ¿Quieres dar un paseo hacia Seatlle?
In my not so humble opinion the above sentence is sort of ackward
how about, ¿Quieres ir a Seattle? Would you like to go to Seattle?
Pasear, paseo
Pasajero
Caution, pasajero can also mean temporary
Esta vida es pasajera

dar un paseo means "take a trip around"

no estaba seguro a donde queria llegar means

"he wasn't sure where he wanted to end up"

"Paseo" in this context is a "trip." I think the second sentence means something like "I/He/She wasn't sure where I/he/she wanted to arrive." It could also be "stay" instead of "arrive." I need more context to be sure.
