Photo Tour of My Summer Whereabouts

The great city of Portland. The city of Roses they call it. This here is my home, where I spend all of my time. I love the city, it's weird, friendly to the eye, and there is always something going on around the city. 

I spend a lot of time paddling on a boat in the Willamette river. This is by far my favorite thing to be doing in the summer. I mean how cool is it? Dragon boating for the W!

Luc Lac!!! I love loveee loveeeee the food here. They have the best Vietnamese food for a reasonable price and I mean look at how chic this place is. 


Portland's Saturday market. I don't think you've been to a market until you have been to this one. 

Cannon Beach. Windy weather and cold water the beach is always about 15 degrees cooler than the city which makes it the perfect getaway when the weather is hot. I was there yesterday with my mother, sister, cousin, and friend. I am trying to teach myself to Skimboard. It's so difficult!

The Columbia Gorge is another of these wonderful spots I visit when it's too hot to be in the city. You could never tell that's where I was when I took this photo but I reassure you that the river is there in the background.

The local Saturday market. Place you are most likely to find me during the summer.

Or at this nice ladies house playing with her dog. I use to spend a lot more time at her house but not so much anymore, however I am still there a lot.

My room. how could I leave this place out? I am here about 75% of the time. My room is the place I come to after a long day of adventures, so how could I not include it?

This post is a COLLAB with Leila @dear future self if you haven't taken a look at her blog please do! She is a wonderful blogger and a lovely person!

  1. Wow, these photos are amazing! Did you take them yourself?

    I love the city too, although I live in a more rural area. I just love the bulling streets, the sounds...

    The atmosphere of cities are just electric, don't you think?
