I'm Stumped

There's no better way to enjoy Portland, OR (aka Beervana) than to drink wayyy more beer than you know you should with some of your favorite people...and that's exactly what I did! I spent 8 wonderful days in "Stumptown" exploring the beautiful city, eating my heart out, and drinking my liver to death. 

From the moment I arrived, I hit the ground running and took full advantage of the surprisingly perfect sunny weather there. I roamed the streets, parks, bridges, and so much more. Since this was my first trip to Portland, I visited tons of touristy sites (pictured below). But by 5pm every day, my trip turned into a beerfest with my friends, my cousin and her grad school buddies. 

I left Portland with a crazy hangover, a gnarly cough and cold, and 5 more lbs but it was all offset by the many new memories and friends I've made (including the most amazing 71 year old lady I met on my flight to PDX)! And to top it off...I even learned how to use public transportation! 

I definitely can't wait to head back and visit again soon!

A random patch of land the length of two city blocks where the goats roamed. This little bit of randomness made my trip sooo much better!
