Portland | Vacation Pt 2

Our first evening in Portland consisted of good ramen at Miho Izakaya and then relaxing in the Rosebud. It’s been a dream of mine to stay at the Caravan Tiny House Hotel and it did not disappoint in its coziness. Since it was nearly 70 degrees, we had all the windows open to let the warm breeze through. It was definitely an interesting night to not only hear all the bar noise from next door into the wee hours of the morning, but having the roof right there in your face made late night bathroom visits a challenge.

The next day, we browsed the Pearl District and hung out at Powell’s Bookstore.

Sunday, we spent a windy afternoon at the Lan Su Chinese Garden, got the full Voodoo Doughnuts experience and even spent some time at the Ground Kontrol Arcade. Area 51 shooter game, anyone?

I had a Puh-Erh flight and the earthy flavors brought back memories of Hong Kong and Guangzhou, China.

My American Eagle grey leggings and my Ann Taylor blouse made a pulled together but neutral outfit for this very windy, chilly day.  Once again, my BCBG faux leather jacket and neutral boots made an appearance.  Of course, my Midori came with so I could record details and slip in business cards and mementos along the way.

Our last full day was beautifully sunny, so it was perfectly timed that we spent it hiking Multnomah Falls. We revisited the Pearl District after, lunching on French food at Little Bird and yes, heading back to Powell’s, so I could get my fill of book browsing. Dessert was had at Papa Hadyn, where Brian got a Bourban Chocolate ball, which was basically a truffle the size of one’s fist and I had the Chocolate cube, a box of chocolate filled with chocolate mousse and served with ice cream. It was a real treat.

This day I sported my American Eagle skinny jeans again, with an Ann Taylor collared shirt, my Banana Republic leather bracelet and a beaded bracelet a good friend made me.

Thanks to a friendly tip from a Tiny House Facebook Forum follower, we breakfasted at Petite Provence the morning we were leaving and sure enough, it was a hearty meal all around. Then off to the airport, where we got to take our foot selfie with PDX’s famous quirky carpeting.
