Road trippin from Santa Monica –> Vancouver
Hello hello! If you follow my instagram stories (if you don’t, shame!!), you already know I have been on an epic road trip from Santa Monica to Portland for the last few days.
It was been a TON of driving (total driving time is something like 26 hours) but we have seen some pretty amazing sights. Pictured above, obviously. 😝 We drove part of the California coast, and part of the Oregon coast. Honestly I had no idea half the stuff we saw even existed so close to home! Girl was like 😍😍😍 for most of the drive.
I am writing to you from Portland, Oregon. We spent my bday night here last night at The Nines Hotel (highly recommend, the inside of this place looks like a Tiffany Box which OBVIOUSLY makes me v happeh) and went around and did some beer/cocktail tasting. There are so many “micro” and “nano” breweries here it is hipster heaven.
Anywho, today we are driving from Portland –> Vancouver which will definitely not be as scenic, so this will probably be the last of the photos I share from this trip. If you have ever driven from Portland to Vancouver (Canada) you also know it is a pretty borrrrring drive. Luckily, Troy (bae) and I have my beautiful singing talents to entertain us for the drive. LOL. I’m actually the worst at singing. Like, the worst ever. 😭
We are stopping in Seattle today, which means I will likely hit up Din Tai Fung (aka the best Chinese dumpling spot everrrrrr) for some Xiao Long Bao. If you know what this is, you know what’s good. Basically Xiao Long Bao is a traditional soup-filled dumpling from Shanghai that is just TO DIEEEE FORRRRRRRRRRR. THEY EVEN HAVE TRUFFLE FLAVOURED ONES!!!! (Not excited one bit.😁) Anywho, follow instagrammmm for updates on my dumpling journey. I will likely post about it here too because dumplings = life. 😊
OK GOTTA GO. Time to get on the road peoples.
Luvs ya. 😘
