Another city checked off my list: Portland, Oregon. It was refreshing to see an urban city mixed with such vibrant and lush green trees. We did all the touristy things including Powell's bookstore, VooDoo Donuts (overrated if you ask me), went hiking, checked out a few breweries, and my favorite... just pig out. Some top food spots include: Khao Man Gai, Blue Star Donuts and Lardo. I also enjoyed checking out the artwork the local artists displayed, and even got a signed graphic novel of Chuck Palahniuk from Powell's! The International Rose Garden is also a must-see, an amazing view of rose bushes in every color of the spectrum.
