Quick update on me — Between my job and free time I have been traveling nonstop for the last few months. However I’ve manage to collect a few videos and photos along the way to share with you! The next couple weeks I’ll be featuring Central and Southern California! What to do, how to get there and so on and so forth!
So enough back story lets jump into that good — good. A couple of months ago we decided to rent a car on one of our trips and take a stroll up to the Sign of the Stars.
**I call this a stroll only because yours truly is not the most athletic one in the room — an abbreviated hike is probably the best way to describe what went down here **
***Hello internet world! I know I have been MIA. We had the Matthew scare down here last week in South Florida, which meant I spent two full days preparing for one inch of rain. That being said, we are feeling super blessed that all we received were mild winds and a little water, our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone that was affected. It’s heartbreaking to see how much damage this storm caused not only to our sister states but also to our Caribbean neighbors. Sending so many good vibes. Below is the post that was meant for last Wednesday, hope it is still semi-relevant. xx Kye***
An art I have perfected, is the art of doing nothing. Yes this is a travel blog. Yes I know, you are wondering why I am talking about doing nothing. But we are talking about the art of nothingness because it does pertain to travel, and it’s importance is immense.
Portland. I was there. Not for long, but I was there. How do you do Portland in in less than 20 hours? Well this is how I did it.
10pm – Go to a brewery, we arrived pretty late so we popped into a pub for some grub and a drank.
1am?? – Go to sleep? Prepare for next day.
9am – For my new internet friends please note that I am not an early riser. If I was though, I would have snuck away to check out Forest Park, it is supposed to be incredible. But since I am a zombie, until I have a fat coffee that is precisely what I did. So 9am..Have coffee (not from Starbucks) ask the barista what you should do for the day and then find yourself a cute delicatessen for breakfast. Latkes for errbody.
10am – Go to Powell’s Bookstore and go get a book! That place is like nine stories tall and an entire block long. I can guarantee they probably have what you are looking for.
11am – Go thrifting.. duh. It’s Portland.
12pm – Sit in a square; or in a park or something that is outside and nature friendly and surrounded by people. There are a ton. Pioneer Courthouse Square, O’Bryant Square, Chapman Square. Just to name a few. Click here for a full list. This would be a good time to start reading your new book.
1pm – Talk to a hippie trying to save the children on your way to find lunch. (This will take at least 20 minutes, but it is kind of crucial for the Portland experience that this happens.. so just do it.)
1:25pm – Go find lunch.. more specifically go find lunch at Food Truck Corner.. Do I need to explain why or do we understand each other? Here is the address.
2pm – Savor the misty weather of this yummy Northwest city. Enjoy your lunch. Walk back to your hotel and pack.
This is how you do a Portland overnight in less than 20 hours. What did I miss? How do you do Portland in less than a day?
