A short visit to Portland

Here I am again. After sometimes of laziness writing a blog, I am trying to write again. A lot of things were happened but didn’t get a chance to put it here.

First I need to put my short trip to Portland last spring after the conference days in Denver.

Why Portland? I think I am kind of person who is influenced by the life style from magazines or other media. Khakis color, wood, simplicity, city life, buildings, interior, foodies, photography, and so on….most if those things that I like came from Portland.

I stayed a couple of night in a street close to Alberta street which famous for the art. I found this place from AirBnb and got a very nice host and room just like a hotel. I would like to stay with them again next time.

I spent all the days by myself exploring the alberta street, pearl district and surrounding. This kind of city that I like. Totally different from Seoul where I live now. Less high tech, less tall buildings, no skycraper, people greet everywhere. I would love to come back here again someday!

PS: I shopped alot in Powell Book Store, the biggest bookstore there.

I met Rosie, a girl who originaly comes from China and study in US, she was travelling alone as well. Thanks Rosie for this lovely pic.

This street has a tradition of having a Last Thursday event, every month. Lucky I was there. People there will sell alot of art and open their gallery on the street. Some street performances also open during that event.

    1. Wow that’s cool! I love this area so much. There are so many places that I want to visit still. Do you know Tea Bar? I would love to visit it. I wish I could go back there again 🙂
