summer road-trip to portland

Being from the West Coast, we take a lot of things for granted and one of them is the ability to pack your things and head for the open road (check out our blog post on top 10 road-trip songs). As children, some of our most memorable trips were road trips and Portland was a place we had not been to for a long while!

A friend of mine describe Portland as a city with all of the cool and best parts of Vancouver in one place. The people were friendly, the food was tasty and the shopping was greaaaaaat! 













One of our cousins that we traveled with currently studies at the Art Institute in Seattle so we stopped over for lunch on our way back, and I have to say that Seattle was looking awfully nicer than I remember it being on most days. It was sunny, the mountains were clearly visible in the distant and the water very blue.
