Last month, I flew out to Portland to meet up with my best friends who now live on the west coast! I actually told my friend Katie that our other friend Mariana wasn’t coming on the trip anymore so the first night we were in Portland she was shocked when Mariana flew in and surprised her!

(Note, these tours didn’t involve hiking.) Read on to see what we did! Continue reading
