เที่ยวพอร์ตแลนด์ โอเรกอน – Kenny and Zuke’s Delicatessan, PDX, OR (EN)

There’s something going on in the food scene of Portland, Oregon. Relatively a newer state when compared to others, especially those in the Eastern side of the country, Oregon is known for being the ‘Wild Wild West.’ Its beautiful and abundant natures still trump the architectures. Its big trees still the big draw. Its clean air and friendly atmosphere still the unique fantastic native characters. However, when it comes to food, people here are totally creative and wild. Take this downtown Jewesih Delicatessan for example. Homegrown from a passionate kitchen, Kenny and Zuke’s Delicatessan is now probably Portland’s only...

เที่ยวพอร์ตแลนด์ โอเรกอน – Breakfast at Byways Cafe, Portland, OR (EN)

It would take me a whole month to write about every breakfast we had in PDX. For there, we stayed for 31 days and liked every single morning. Rain or shine, dry or puddle, warm or chill, Portland, Oregon – the small town cordially called after its airport code as ‘PDX’ – is the land of food plenty. For us, this place is a tasty utopia, and here is one meal that I single out this time to showcase the fact. If I have to rate the place that I like most for breakfast, the first has to be ‘Byways Cafe’ in the Pearl District which is a short walk away from our place on Washington and 11th. Byways, small and lined with...

เที่ยวพอร์ตแลนด์ โอเรกอน – A Guide to Portland, Oregon (EN)

After five fabulous days in Seattle, it’s time for us to pack our bags and make a move southward to our beloved city of Portland, Oregon. Our plan is to be totally unpacked and spend a whole month living an easy-paced vacation consisting a lot of eating, walking, dog-watching, reading and perhaps doing some tax-free shopping. 😀 Our transportation of choice, since we vow not to drive this time in the US, is, of course, the Amtrak train which takes about 3 hours. One thing about Amtrak is that if you book ahead enough, chances are that you could get the extra comfort of the business class at the price of the economy. So book ahead if you do...

เที่ยวพอร์ตแลนด์ โอเรกอน – The Pittock Mansion, Portland, OR (EN)

One thing so great about traveling in Portland (Oregon) was how easy it could be to use Google Map and navigate the way. After all, we were in the very land of Google, hence the best change to test its accuracy. Say, we, staying in downtown Portland, wanted to go to Pittock Mansion which was about 3 miles west of where we were. Using Google to map out our journey on public transportation one morning about 10am, we took their suggested route by taking a number 20 bus from Burnside and Stark, getting off at Stop #687 on NW Barnes and walked up to the mansion. It was a beautiful walk as you will see in our video. The weather was clear and cool then...
