Things to Do in Portland

Things to Do in Portland, Portland, Oregon (B)

Here’s another trip that we didn’t plan on taking last year: Portland. I love traveling to new places and when I woke up one morning and found out that JetBlue was selling $55 one-way tickets to Portland, I could not pass up the opportunity. The problem was, I couldn’t find a flight back at the price that was convenient for us so we booked a one-way and crossed our fingers that we could find a one-way back from Seattle (we figured we throw in Seattle in the mix because we were already near Seattle). Luckily, we found a one-way back on Virgin America. As soon as that was booked, we then booked a one-way bus ride on the Bolt Bus. If you buy it at the right time, you can get the bus fare for really cheap. For Charles, Kris, and myself, it cost us about $25 for all three. Super cheap right?

Mother’s Bistro & Bar would have to be my favorite place to eat in Portland. Mother’s is a cute, little place with delicious food. Charles ordered a stuffed frittata but the migas that I ordered was soooo good. The chipotle sour cream was on point but it was the salsa that completed the dish. I love the decor of the place (if you can’t tell already, decor is something I really pay attention to everywhere I go) and we got wonderful service. ......
