Hello! Sorry for not posting last week. We were away traveling, and once we came back, we both got hit with a bad cold, which rendered us to the couch to binge watch Making A Murderer. We couldn’t watch anything too funny least you wanted us to both end up on the floor in a coughing fit. It was quite the sight. But thankfully, except for the occasional coughing fit and voice crack, we are better now and excited to share with you our vacation pictures! We are thinking about moving out west and decided we should probably go and visit before we commit to anything. We went to Portland and Eugene, Oregon and then to San Francisco. It was a blast! So different from being in Boston, that’s for sure. Here is a little travel summary of what we did in Portland. Hope you enjoy!
First up: Washington Park and the Rose Gardens
A quick stop to Voodoo Doughnut and then on to Powell’s Books. After getting lost a couple of times in Powell’s we walked along the waterfront where we were finally greeted by the sun.
Day 2, or the day where we saw how many layers we could wear before turning into the Michelin Tire man, started out by walking around Mt. Tabor.
Lunch at Blossoming Lotus where we shared the most delicious vegan nachos
After lunch we wandered around Mississippi until we ended up in a cute tea shop where we proceeded to stay and wait out the rain for the rest of the day working on a puzzle book together. For dinner we met up with Rose’s aunt and cousins at The Sudra. That place had amazing food and I would highly recommend it to anyone planning on going to Portland! Day 3 started out with us heading back to Washington Park and going to the Japanese Gardens.
After the Japanese gardens we headed to the Chinese gardens, which weren’t as exciting but still fun to walk through. Afterwards we ended up in another tea shop and had the most amazing matcha latte.
We ended our Portland trip on a sweet note with ice cream from Salt & Straw, also a highly recommended place to go to if you are visiting!
That was our trip to Portland! Hope you enjoyed seeing what we got up to. Check back to see the rest of trip to Eugene and then San Fran!
