OREGON & WASHINGTON
This post will be more about photos today. After the sunny Californian post let’s move up north to rainy Oregon. First thing that comes to my mind is the famous city of Portland, the highest mountain Mt. Hood and Cannon Beach. If you’re looking for the most hipster city, it’s definitely Portland and I’m not exaggerating. The season of spring is really beautiful in there because of all the blooming trees. I totally fell in love with Prince Coffee. A coffee shop I can even imagine living in! The buildings in Portland are made out of red bricks, every corner feels stylish. The downtown is pretty small and cute and you can find so many nice stores in there, such as Bridge & Burn, Le Labo, Work/shop, Appetite and coffee shop Pip’s Original Doughnuts was also really cool. While we were there I also visited my friend Kayleigh who is also a blogger and her cute cat with even cuter name Bisou (ohhoneyblog.com). After one walk through the city I felt so inspired to create something. I have a feeling this place is right for me but I still can’t decide if I like it more then SF :)
Washington also has so many places to offer but what thing you notice right away is how many trees are all around you! It’s such a big state that you can drive all day just to get from one place to another even though it feels pretty close on the map. Olympic National Park is a big part of Washington, it’s so beautiful, full of deers and moss covered trees. When we were there I felt like I’m in a totally different world. We spent few nights in a little charming cabin in Mt. Rainier National Park. It was cold and rainy outside but we had a great time inside the cabin. We made a fire, warmed ourselves up with a noodle soup (gluten free for me of course), watched a movie and cuddled in blanket we got from amazing Retroroom. Life was just perfect! Beaches in Washington are hundreds times bigger then beaches in Oregon. So big that even your camera can’t capture that. We had to stop in Seattle too of course. The city was so intimidating when we first arrived. It kind of felt like New York. There are cute coffee shops and other stores everywhere (such as Elm Coffee Roasters, Zeitgeist Coffee, Mooreaseal) and every place is in industrial buildings. We also visited the famous Public Market.
