An Epic Long Weekend in Portland, Oregon

Not too long ago, Derek and I hopped on a plane for a short hour-or-so flight to spend a long weekend in Portland. And man oh man, what an epic adventure this mini getaway turned out to be.

From the delicious farm-to-table cuisine (read: food trucks everywhere) to the delightful balance of vibrant-city-life-meets-incredible-and-accessible-nature, I now know why so many people catch the infectious Portland fever as soon as they arrive. This place radiates good vibes.

Although we were only in this pocket of the Pacific Northwest for a few days,  we certainly did our best to take advantage of all the unique fun it has to offer. Long story short, we hiked, drove up/down the coast, ate way too much, met some pretty fascinating people, and somehow managed to eat a bit more.

Below are a whole bunch of photos, if you’re in the mood for a little scrolling.
