Too many days in Portland: what I did and how I did it

Portland. I had such dreams that on this return trip, you would be everything I wanted and more....

Portland. Like a caricature of its own self. But hey, my view was probably also tainted by the fact I was staying in an airbnb that could have been the bad house in an episode of Scooby Doo.

There were some great things about Portland though and one was right around the corner from said house. Coquine. So good I ate their twice. Like amazingly good. Like you should go to Portland just to go there good. Great space for lunch and then converts to a cosy dinner venue. 

Other good thing about Portland. Beer. It's great. Craft breweries everywhere. Food vans. Just google them and pick one close to where you are staying. Donuts from Voodoo are still good too. Antique shops are a must - pretty overpriced but great for a browse. And Powell's bookstore. It's a wonderful place to while away a few hours. And in the end, Portland is just that. A place to take your time, take it in and take it down a notch.
