On one of our very hot days we took a long roam over to Portland’s Lan Su Chinese Garden.
Our first morning in Portland we got up early to meet my mom’s college friend for a big brunch at Mother’s Bistro and Bar. And as it conveniently turned out, gluten free brunch at Mother’s in Portland was not only possible, it was EASY.
Everything’s more nostalgic when you put music in the background.
(I can actually confirm this because I was part of a research study on the subject last year #nerd)
Anyway, I’ve been in England for almost two weeks now, but right before that we took a massive and overdue family vacation through the pacific northwest. And as per I snuck my camera along. So enjoy this little video I made!
If you have a half or whole day to spare in Portland, Oregon and you’re looking for the budget way to sightsee Portland, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. My recommendation is to use the NS streetcar as your transport and hop off along the way to see the city. The route is straightforward with tons of stops in the best parts of town. Read on for what stops to use, what to see, and a FREE downloadable map at the end of the post!
I hate city bus tours. Hate. Not only are they extortionate and false and over-touristy, but my hate probably also originates from an incident involving a particularly verbose tour-guide, a moose, and a concussion. Nevertheless! No expensive bus tours for me.
