Portland is definitely our most visited city in the USA, and it might even be my favorite city!
Since our last Destination Diary, we’ve been back to Portland multiple times, and it’s time for an update!
Sean Ogle rejoins us on the podcast after several years to share his insider perspective on Portland and share some of his favorite spots around the city. Turns out he was holding out on us while we were there! Guess we’ll just have to go back!
We talk about some of the best restaurants in town, including brunch, pizza, food carts, happy hour, and just plain weird. As one of the best cities in the states for coffee, breweries, and desserts we of course touch on these as well. My favorite ice cream shop is there after all, how could we not talk about it!
Our Destination Diary series provides a great overview of a place that we’ve been, or in this place, lived!
Heather and I had the great fortune to be able to live in Japan for 2 years as we taught English, and started Extra Pack of Peanuts!
In those two years, we visiting many different parts of the country and learned quite a bit about how to travel around cheaply. Today we share those tips with you, along with a great list of where to stay, what to do, and what you should (and maybe shouldn’t) eat while you’re in Japan!
It has everything. It’s small but has everything you want. You can drive without it being a pain. And you can get to the mountains, the beach, and most importantly, the wine country with less than a 30-minute car ride.
Today Heather joins me as we break down our time in Capetown, from the deal with transportation through amazing (and some not amazing) food and wine we had along the way.
We have spent more time in Chiang Mai than any other city in the world.
Except, of course, Philadelphia.
And yet somehow, we’ve never done a Destination Diary on it!
So today, long overdue, is an account of some of the best places in Chiang Mai. The best restaurants (for all different types of food), the best places to stay, some of the most fun activities, and the best straight razor shave you’ll ever get!
Today we bring you a very special destination diary, one close to our hearts.
From the best places to eat and drink around town (including the dive bars) to the most interesting museums for children and adults, it’s all here.
Everything we mention could be done in a couple of day itinerary in Philly (except for maybe all the food. That’s a lot of pizza!) and is great for single travelers, couples, or those traveling with children.
What’s your favorite place to go in Philly? Did we miss something important that we need to do when we get back from SE Asia? Let us know below!
