Travel Throwback (Part Two)

Sunday, January 15, 2017

Happy Sunday! 
I'll be taking today to get ready for the week, making sure I'm on top of everything and organized. I thought today would be a good day for the second part of my travels from 2016. I showed you my trips to North Carolina and my Surprise Birthday trip to Nashville. Today it's all about my trips to Portland and Michigan.

 (This is Brianna! We're literally the SAME person)

This Portland trip was a big deal for me. This was the first time I had ever traveled alone (flown). It was a super cool experience but best believe I called my mom a million times for reassurance I was doing everything right! Lol. Let me back up to why I was even here. I have a super close friend names Brianna, who was living here (she's then moved) and I wanted a vacation while also getting the chance to see her. This was the perfect opportunity for that. She showed me all around the city and I got to see a lot of cool things. In the picture above, we were at the Rose Garden/Japanese Garden in Portland. If you ever get the chance, you have to go! The grounds are so beautiful and perfect opportunities for a photo op ;) lol. 


"You can't come to Portland without visiting Seattle!"
The words of my friend Brianna. She managed to give me the chance to check out the city of Seattle and fan girl because of Grey's Anatomy. I got to see the very first Starbucks, EVER, as well as check out the Pike Place Market. Here there were cool flower stands, vendors. It's a definite must see. They weren't kidding when they said Seattle is always rainy and dreary. Getting caught in the rain looking like wet dogs, grabbing coffee to stay warm and driving back to Portland in the drab was all worth it!


My trip to Michigan came up out of the blue. My best friend Molly and her Dad were going to see the Michigan game and asked if I wanted to go. I'm not huge into sports, but she is, and this was an experience I'd get to share with her. This was one of the best trips I've gone on. I got to meet a lot of her family who welcomed me into their homes with open arms and treated me like one of the family. Just that alone made the trip more enjoyable and enhanced the experience. I got to see her childhood home as well as have my first ever Miller Burger! If you're ever in Michigan, you have to go, you will not be disappointed. The Michigan game was an experience in itself. This was the biggest game I've ever attended and everyone's energy was so exciting! Although I'm a gators fan, I was proud to yell, "GO BLUE! 💛."So thankful for the experience of traveling to a new place and to her and her Dad for taking me!
