Around Portland and Yamhill County

If you have ever visited Portland, Oregon, you should turn on your relaxed mode, take it easy on the fashion sense, turn on your food button, and eat like you haven’t eaten before.  The lifestyle here is about natural and organic. The food is so good. Fruits and veggies are really fresh. Talking about fresh, flowers here are gorgeous and everywhere.  Summer in Portland is just perfect (high at 70F). The weather is  ideal to walk around the city. NW 23rd street is a fun street to explore. There are many cool restaurants, nice boutiques, and local souvenir stores. Don’t forget to try out different flavors (they’re weird but yummy flavors) from a famous ice-cream store called Salt & Straw.  Downtown is another fun area. While you’re in this neighborhood, you should have some fun and try the food from food trucks near Powell’s book store. It’s located in the Pearl district (fun area too) and if you love books, make sure and visit this book store.  It’s the largest independent and used book store in the world (occupies a full city block with 5 stories high). Oh! especially, don’t forget to visit the Saturday Market in the Portland University district at the end of the Park Blocks. It’s a fun market experience. There are a lot of outdoor activities around Portland,  like visiting the Rose Garden, Washington park, hiking up to Multnomah Falls, spending a day in the countryside, taking a scenic tour on  the JetBoat (at OMSI), adventures on the Columbia river with many kinds of water activities…

Here are some pictures around Portland.

One of the pretty bridges. Willamette Falls. Hiking up to Washington Park. At Saturday Market.

The view from our airplane. Rose Garden. Peonies at Zupan's Markets. My DIY bracelet, made from wild flowers. We had fun at Washington Park.

Pretty poem on a street.

In the countryside: Yamhill County.

A sign for Merriman Vineyard. Pretty roses. Cows. Bones of dead animal.

Beautiful wild flowers at Merriman Vineyard.

We enjoyed picking wild blackberries and cherries. Those fruits were so juicy and sweet.

I loved the feeling when we drove through this road. I'm in love with it. It's pretty wild nature-just so beautiful.

I’ve been lazy to carry my big camera with me. My Iphone and Instagram give me options to make my beautiful photos. Make sure to follow me on Instagram @lifeintravel for my instance daily picture updates. Tag me #lifeintravel your summer pictures. I’d love to enjoy them. :)

Thank you for reading and have a wonderful day! xo…Hanh :)
