Portland Guide 2/2

I totally forgot to post this when we actually went haha. So I'll keep it pretty brief! 

Day 2 started with breakfast at Fried Egg I'm In Love. It was such a cute little place with good food, too! All the food names were phrases from songs haha. 

After breakfast we went to Powell's Books which was honestly just as cool as you hear! It was huge and there were so many fun sections and just cute little touches. 

We walked around a bit and found some super cute little stores and fun street art.

I was so sad that our s'mores place wasn't open until 5:00pm haha. Oh well! I guess it just gives us a reason to go back!

We also went to the Japanese gardens which were so pretty! 10/10 would recommend seeing them. 

We went to Pittock mansion for the view and it did not disappoint! 

Me being awkward in every photo lol. I like having people in photos and I don't want to be that person who has like, 0 photos of themselves because they are always behind the camera, BUT I also feel so awkward being in photos hahahah. 

We did dinner at ¿Por QuĂ© No? which was just a cute little hole-in-the-wall feeling taco shop! 

We parked a few blocks away and it was so cute to walk around the area a bit!

We stood in line forever in the cold to get the infamous Salt and Straw ice cream! 

I'm glad we got this one last trip in before the pandemic hit! And I love that we have such a fun city just a few hours drive from us. It will definitely make for fun weekend trips in the future!

Portland Guide 1/2

One of the things that excites me most about living in a new place is all the weekend trips! We made the 3 hour drive down to Portland over Martin Luther King Jr. day weekend and it was honestly so much fun! I am totally sold on Portland and want to go back ASAP. There was amazing art everywhere, and the food was SO good. Oh, and the people were really nice, too. 10/10 trip overall!

We stayed at this Airbnb (super affordable) and it was in the prettiest neighborhood, that I am obviously now convinced I need to move to lol. Anyway, here's a little guide to what we did and what you should do too!

So, as I was saying yesterday, we headed back to Portland to catch our red eye flight. Necessary stops were made at Starbuck's (which we do have here but hey it's good) for a pink drink and Jimmy John's (which we don't have here and miss greatly) for a #6.

In Portland we drove around downtown and went to Cathedral Park. I can't believe how pretty Cathedral Park was!!!! I'll let the photos do the talking.

This hoodie I have been wearing on repeat can be found here!

Our last stop before the airport was Blue Star Donuts! I think I got strawberry basil... or something like that. I remember it being v delicious! J got something poppyseed and said it was ok but not his fave. 

After that, we caught our flight and went home! We got into New York at 7:00am and were welcomed back by the shuttle to our car being late (they were on the other side of this area we were supposed to meet and never called us or told us there was another side lol), our shuttle driver arguing with his boss about money when he was supposed to be getting our car (like literally right in front of us with our car keys in his hand lol #priorities) and some drama at work! We were like, "welcome home!!" lol. Needless to say, our personalities are definitely not made for New York or Connecticut (idk if there are other "mean" states in the northeast, but I am just speaking from my experience). 

Anyway! It was a good little trip and I'm glad we did it! I have two weeks left of my internship and only a few weeks of school after that! So it all really feels so close. I feel like my "real life" is about to begin and I'm excited!
