Oregon Pt. 3

Of course I had to see downtown Portland while I was visiting. It is a beautiful city.

This is where all the hipsters go...

I thought there would be more to do, but the only thing we did on this trip to the city was go to Nordstrom. But it worked out incredibly because I was able to find FOUR- count em'- FOUR pairs of shoes in my tiny size 4. Oh my, it really was a blessing. I've been looking for MONTHS with no luck. And in one stop I get four.

On another trip to the city, my parents took me to the Saturday/ Sunday Market. It was quite the experience. I didn't find anything I wanted to buy, but it was a fun! I've learned that Portlandia really does a good job of portraying Portland...

After the market, we headed over to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. This was so much fun! We took a tour on the Blueback Submarine and that was such a great experience! I'd never been in a submarine before.

I snapped this photo through the submarine's pariscope!
hello downtown portland!

I think I enjoyed the "grossology" section of the museum the most. It was so interesting and I already knew a lot of it, from school.
The esthetician is climbing the wall of skin. Ironic? Or just gross?

I definitely had a great time in the city of Portland.

Your shoes are amazing

It's ironic that sometimes there's less to do in the city than anywhere else isn't it? Funny how that works. But I'm so glad you found some shoes! I didn't realize your feet are so small. In all of your pictures they look in proportion to you body (my feet are too small for my body). The shoes you bought are great! I actually love them all, but especially those second ones with the buckle--too cute!

And how cool that you went on a submarine! I've only ever been on the Nemo one at Disneyland haha. And that rock-climbing picture of you just cracks me up! I mean, that's some gross-looking skin there haha--who would want to touch it? The esthetician of course! ; ]

Nordstrom is just opening here in Canada, thank goodness :) Pioneer Square is kind of a Portland must tho so at least you did that!!!!! Next time, hit up Powell's if you love books. It's like 5 stories tall and an entire city block! So awesome. Looks like a great trip!

If I were a hipster I'd go there too :) And hooray for new shoes! It is always the super tiny, large, and size 8's that are impossible to find. Congrats on those awesome fringe boots! They are bomb

As a native Portlander, there is so much more to this city! On your next trip, make sure to hit Powell's City of Books, VooDoo Doughnut, Washington Park and all of its attached local wonders. You MUST visit the shops along NW 23rd and 21st, eat from a food cart, and get the best massage of your life from The Dragontree! There is so much to this city. You just have to know where to find it :)
