Solo travel experience

I traveled after a breakup. I always loved visiting Portland. I went to the Japanese friendship garden, hiked multnomah falls and just ventured out. I loved going there and I wanted to live there but couldn’t foit the bill. Met some very nice people as well. I miss the coffee.

Solo travel experience

I made a solo trip to Portland in November last year. I only had 2.5 days, but I tried to make the most of that time. I ate and drank at many cool breweries and restaurants. Breakfasts were the most important. Portland definitely knows how to do a proper breakfast. I attended a great concert at Revolution Hall. I managed to watch people and walk along McCall's waterfront. One morning I went to Multnomah Falls (if you go early, there's hardly anyone there). Seeing a photo of Multnomah Falls put Portland on my travel list. I stayed in Southeast Portland (which I really liked) and walked almost everywhere.

Solo travel experience

I went on a quick solo trip to Portland and its surroundings. I loved the full-day trips and a few of the neighborhoods in the city. I had a wonderful time there. The city has a really relaxed, friendly atmosphere, and the people are incredibly nice.
