We went to Portland, Oregon for a week and attended a 2 day conference at Storyline with Donald Miller (all about changing the story of your life). Since we were there we decided to add on a bit of holiday and went with a friend from church.
It was a wonderful time to get away and do something completely different. My sister and I had been to Astoria, Cannon Beach, Seaside a few years earlier and had only spent 2 hours in Portland so it was fun to actually explore Portland this time.
|Our hotel (Mark Spencer) and the lobby of the famous Ace Hotel |
Our hotel was right in the heart of the city and we faced the main street street. They lobby was so lovely and we loved the 24 hour cappuchino/latte and steamed milk machine, they also offer wine at 5pm every day and tea with cookies at 3pm.
|The beautiful Nob Hill District (we all loved it)|
We all loved this area and the shops were wonderful. This is a must see area of town.
|Portland Saturday/Sunday Market (we couldn't believe how big this market was and it seemed endless)|
This was a huge market and it runs Saturday and Sunday. We've never been to a market this large before. Prices were not cheap though even though there is no sales tax.
