My favourite things in Portland

by Karen Viehoever on 26 February 2014, 10:02AM My favourite things in Portland I moved to Portland from the eastern part of the USA in my early twenties, and delight in the wisdom I showed at that early age!  I still love to visit the East Coast, but Portland, Oregon is where I want to live.  Why?  Here are a few of my favourite things… Everyone is welcome.  Portlanders can’t help it.  We are friendly.  Strangers talk to each other and be warned; visitors brandishing maps will be accosted by well-meaning residents who want to help.  Not everyone looks the same, either.  We have hippies and hipsters, people with politically incorrect nick names and identifying initials, like L G B T Q.  So what? The outdoors is everyone’s playground.  Granted – Portland is a vibrant city but part of the charm...

Australia’s grape escape

Australia’s grape escape

Western Australia’s south west is well-known for its waves and wine, but now there is a gourmet food culture to match with truffle tours and a new beachside foodie festival. In the past whenever I thought about Australia the first thing that popped into my head was the red earth of the Outback. So it came with great surprise to be travelling through rolling green hills and lush vegetation...

Great Rail Journeys from Vancouver

Great Rail Journeys from Vancouver

First-time visitors to British Columbia normally choose one of the two routes between Vancouver and either Jasper – ‘Journey through the Clouds’ – or Banff – ‘First Passage to the West’. Both are a complete contrast to the Coastal Passage journey and both options take the same route from Vancouver as far as the overnight stop at Kamloops where the tracks...

Big, bigger, biggest

Big, bigger, biggest

They say that everything’s bigger in Texas and they sure weren’t fibbing- big hats, big smiles and big portions, my fly-drive trip to the Lone Star state was definitely big on all these things and more. My one week trip took in San Antonio, Bandera and Austin which was a great mix of cowboys, culture, history, live music and good old southern hospitality. Here is the first part of a se...
