Growing up in California I always heard of the Madonna Inn with their famous themed rooms, pink cakes, and kitsch charm. A few weeks ago during for a quick overnight stop I was able to stay in the Vous Room. Ornate blue wallpaper, a round bed, and an all orange bathroom were just some of the amazing details this room had to offer. I couldn’t help myself from taking a bunch of photos.
I snagged cheap tickets for a fun weekend getaway to portland a few months ago and I spent all last week planning it. Lots of activities were on my agenda and we managed to do most of them despite the ridiculous 100-degree heat.Our airbnb was extremely well decorated and had a beautifully stylized bohemian look.
It was also the weekend of the awesome craft fair Crafty Wonderland that featured a bunch of local artists. A rapper who performs with cats was also there and it felt like a skit from Portlandia.
After the fair we walked around a bit and found ourselves in downtown Portland where we found cool art and strong coffee.
I haven’t had too much time to sift though all of my vacation photos yet, but since being back I’ve helped my boyfriend create a pretty sweet video summing up our trip. All of the places we’ve visited were breathtaking and amazing, definitely the best first Europe trip I could have asked for. Specially we’ve visited Amsterdam, lots of Ireland, and Budapest. Check out the video and let me know what you guys think!
In two weeks i’ll be jetting off to Europe for the very first time. Destination no.1 will be Amsterdam, land of the multi-colored tulips spanning fields and fields. A real tulipalooza. I’m pretty excited to visit and I still have to compile a list of places I want to go.
Does anyone have any Amsterdam sights that I should check out?
One of the stops during my east coast trip was Syracuse. There wasn’t too much to see but I was able
to keep busy visiting the beautiful old buildings surrounded by bright summer greenery.
The first night I went on a water taxi with my awesome boyfriend Mike. We got to see amazing views of the island and
received a dainty glass of champagne – I highly recommend it. And if anyone is wondering, the sky was
not that purple/pink when I took that Brooklyn Bridge photo :p
It’s been over a week since I’ve posted anything and its due to my recent trip to the east coast.
Even though it was only a 10-day trip, I was bouncing around state to state going from
New York to Connecticut then New Jersey.
I’ll be posting up my trip pictures soon, but till then I wanted to just keep everyone updated 🙂
