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!
