Portland Travel Log // Part II - See




I'm trying this new thing where I post all my images first and then share my thoughts. Let me know what you think of it. Does it have a better flow? Or do you prefer reading as you scroll through the pictures. To me, I like to get the visual out of the way and then read. So here goes...


I can get behind a good hike or nature walk, but nothing is more entertaining to me than the constant excitement of an urban landscape. From the signage, to the crazily painted walls and people watching. 

Every city has it's unique feel and I'd say Portland's is quirky and comfortable. What I mean by "comfortable" is that it has a small town sensation. 

Next to people/fun sign spotting, my favorite thing is to bike spot. I mean cute bikes galore. I crush hard on several two wheeled cuties every single time I'm in Portland. It's just not fair. I want them all. 

Back to signage, if you're every in the PDX be sure to keep your eyes peeled for all the cute restaurant/storefronts and signs. I can appreciate the care for detail and respect for aesthetic.

I mentioned how quirky this city is, but I think nothing verifies that more than a traveling vintage bus. I mean, "double decker dress shop?" Yes!

I shared the food trucks here (instead of in Part I, which was focused on eating in the city), because we were way too stuffed from breakfast to try any of the bus treats, but I couldn't resist some of the signs.
