I am picking up right where I left off back in November. After exploring San Diego, it was time to move on to Oregon. Last year was the very first time I had been to the third state on the West Coast. Although I had been yearning to go for so long, I only managed to do so it in 2016.
A friend joined and we started off in Portland. Four full days were dedicated to exploring the city and the nature surrounding it. And boy am I glad we decided to go for the nature on that one memorable day we rented a car and drove all over the place. Because Portland by itself is a complete underestimation of what Oregon really has to offer.
Breath-taking beaches, huge waterfalls, and amazing mountain views.
If I were to return to Oregon, I would love to dip into the smaller towns and see more of nature than we managed to explore on our first trip out there. I hope the pictures give you a taste of a state that is amazingly beautiful in many different ways possible.
