Been forever since I’ve updated, mostly because of me just not having any inspiration/motivation to continue blogging. So today I’ll be kicking off my first update of 2020 with a travel post. My cousin and I went to Portland for a couple days to see comedian Andrew Schultz and got to sightsee the remaining days of our visit.
I pulled some stuff from my notes that I used to make our itinerary, so for those of you thinking about visiting, here are some things you can add 🙂
Started our trip with a bit of a bummer but, as luck would have it we got pulled over 10 miles out from leaving the airport while on our way to Multnomah Falls lol I guess it’s cooler to get a ticket traveling than in your hometown driving to work or something, right? We also had quite the view waiting for the sheriff to ticket us lol
I thought it’d be a lot colder than it was, it was a solid 40-50 degrees during our stay which was nice, the air always felt clean and crispy.
The surrounding forests and nature, in general, is very pretty and so different compared to San Diego. It was nice to visit somewhere green lol I’m not used to seeing so much moss on rocks and trees. One of our Uber drivers told us it usually ~only~ rains about 9 months out of the year, which is unheard of for us down here lol It was also my first time being up close to such a large waterfall, I’m not sure what I was expecting it to sound like but def didn’t think it’d be as loud as it was.
Visited the Portland Japanese Garden and it was beautiful. It’s very open so there was a lot of walking to be done which made it a little difficult since I was still wearing my boot post surgery lol Our Japanese friendship garden here in San Diego is tiny compared to this one.
