    Short stopp in Portland

    August 4, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    🇺🇸
    After a workout and stop at Cannon Beach 🏝 we went to buy new sleeping pads. Our mattress (RIP) is gone... 😫 and for the rest of the trip we definitely needed new ones. After getting two pads at the sales 🤩😅 we took of for the next stop on our road-trip - Portland. Just south of the city we found a nice rest area to sleep. And thank good the new pads are still working!
    In Portland we visited the UPS store to send the broken mattress back to amazon. We have never done something stupid like that! Amazon is paying 160$ for the shipping of a 75$ worth broken mattress, to destroy it anyway, instead of relaying on our pictures and just refund us the money for the mattress 🙁😂. Weird story - welcome to the world of online shopping 😨.
    After that we went through town, saw the Pioneer Courthouse and Square, the Steel Bridge and a market right at the waterfront.
    We weren’t flashed by the city, so we decided to head back to the coast towards Lincoln City and further south towards Florence 🏝😍.

    Nach einem kleinen Workout und Zwischenstopp am Cannon Beach 🏝, haben wir uns heute eine neue Luftmatratze gekauft. Unsere Matratze hat nun für immer das Zeitliche gesegnet 😫. Da wir für den Rest der Reise unbedingt neue Matratzen brauchen, fuhren wir los. Nachdem wir zwei Pads im Sale 🤩😅 bekommen hatten, machten wir uns auf den Weg nach Portland, der nächsten Station unseres Roadtrips. Südlich der Stadt fanden wir am Abend einen schönen und kostenlosen Rastplatz zum Schlafen. Und Gott sei Dank funktionieren die neuen Pads auch noch nach der ersten Nacht!
    In Portland besuchten wir zunächst den UPS Store, um die kaputte Matratze an Amazon zurück zu schicken. Wir haben noch nie etwas so Unnötiges und Dummes gemacht! Amazon zahlt uns lieber 160$ für den Versand der 70€ teuren kaputten Matratze, um diese dann sowieso zu zerstören, anstatt nach unseren Bildern zu urteilen uns einfach nur das Geld für die Matratze 🙁😂 zurückzuzahlen. Seltsame Geschichte - willkommen in der Welt des Online-Shoppings 😨.
    Danach fuhren wir durch die Stadt, sahen das Pioneer Courthouse und den dazugehörigen Square, die Steel Bridge und einen Markt direkt am Wasser.
    Wir waren nicht von der Stadt selbst Mega begeistert und beschlossen daher zurück an die Küste nach Lincoln City und weiter südlich nach Florenz zu fahren 🏝😍.

    Portland, Fairview, OR

    July 3, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Astoria was a great place and we enjoyed our meal at one of the boutique breweries that dot the state of Oregon the one we ate at was the Bouy.
    Departing Astoria at 7.30am we headed toward Portland with our destination being Cascade Corporation, corporate headquarters for my work. We were greeted by Tod Finney, Tom Logan who shared the duties of doing a plant tour. Noela now knows that I do not just come here to party. Steve Keller bought lunch in the Cascade Café where we were joined and made to feel especially welcome by Andy, Anderson Susan Wright and David Nakamura. A big thank you to you all for a great tour and lunch. Thankyou also to Joe Gallivan for the invitation to your home.
    A visit to Paradise Harley followed and these guys were unbelievably welcoming. The day was rounded out with the girls visiting some shops, when we returned they did not have one shopping bag. Laundry day today and then dinner.

    Downtown, Portland OR

    July 5, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Portland is a beautiful city and we spent today cramming as much in as possible. The public transport here is brilliant, we jumped onto the Tri-met Maxrail at 8.00am for 5$ a head ride all day for 24 hours. With a quick stop and a coffee at Pioneer Square we boarded the max rail again and wnt up to Washington Park the home of Portland Zoo, the Japanese Garden, International Rose garden, Vietnam Vets memorial, a memorial to the Holocaust Victims and more.
    I was first taken to the Rose garden in 1994 and have always wanted to come back. From the terminus of the Maxrail there is a free shuttle every 15 minutes that runs through Washington Park. We got off the shuttle at the Rose garden, the rose fragrance is amazing and there are literally thousands of roses planted here. The oldest being a rose bush grown from a cutting from a plant 1000 years old.
    From here we went our separate ways with Carl and Paola going to the Vietnam Memorial and the Zoo and us walking the streets and taking in Portland downtown. Noela picked up some good bargains. We really enjoyed all of the different parts of the city including some of the weird ssites like the blue guy below. Reports from Carl and Paola are that the zoo is fantastic, and Carl got to appease his bear appetite again.
    We regrouped at the motel at 4.30 and visited the Columbia river adjacent to the airport where there is a whole community living in houseboats on the river. Portland is truly a wonderful place but for now we are packed and ready for our gypsy train to move on. Tomorrow we move on to visit Mt Hood and Sisters Oregon and some very special friends.

    Roadtrip from SF to Portland

    July 18, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    What a ride. Typical problem: too much to see and so little time! Great views on the road on highway 1, a night in Eureka (wouldn't recommend that) and on we went on highway 101 - mountains, lakes, beaches, sea, 2000 year old woodsRead more

    Portland, weiter geht's

    July 21, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    ---UPDATE--- nun mit Bildern.
    Nach einem wahnsinns Frühstück ging es zu Marc und seinem Mitbewohner Scott. “Ihr könnt bleiben, so lange ihr wollt. Bier ist im Kühlschrank.“ Gibt es eine bessere Begrüßung? Zu essen gab es frischen Lachs vom Grill. Perfekt! Die Bilder sind alle im Kopf und nicht mit der Kamera aufgenommen...Read more

    Portland

    July 20, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Diese Stadt kämpft gerade mit Boston um den Titel zur schönsten Stadt der USA.
    Marc getroffen, den wir in Island kennengelernt haben. Beim “Soccer“ gewesen und seit dem stolzes Mitglied der Timbers Army. Großartiger Tag und Abend.Read more

    Eagle Creek

    July 22, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Ein weiteres Highlight, keine 45 Minuten von Portland. Marc hat sich wieder als Touristenführer angeboten und uns hierher geführt. Die Wanderung war doch deutlich anstrengender, aber das erfrischende Bad war die passende Belohnung.Read more

    topography from the plane

    March 31, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    maybe the columbia river? then down through nevada, very dry can see the topography of the land. we did go over the grand canyon which was totally cool, but i didn't get a pic as i was in line for the bathroom :(. we didn't have the west jet app going down so didn't exactly know where we were going as we didn't have that map, but coming home we did. You cross over into nevada, arizona as you head down maybe even new mexico. Landforms were fascinating to see from the air.Read more

    Oregon Holocaust Memorial

    August 14 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    We went to see the holocaust memorial in Portland. 6 million Jews were killed in world war 2. There are objects on the ground of things that the people that fled left behind. On the memorial there are phrases that kids said when WW2 happened. This place makes me feel sad for all of the people killed in WW2 but what I don’t like is that the world still isn’t fair today and that makes me be able to relate to the people that were fighting in WW2.Read more

    Archery @ Washington Park

    August 14 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    A week ago Tal wanted to built a bow and an arrow. She was very creative and managed to find a small piece of wood for the base of the bow and wire for the string. When we got to Washington Park in Portland we found a professional archery. People can bring their own bows and arrows and practice in the area. Tal didn’t miss on that awesome opportunity. After that we went on a bike ride in the park - which was a bit challenging due to some steep hills but we managed to go through it and felt great accomplishment at the end.Read more
