I couldn’t help but have the Portlandia theme song repeating over and over in my head as we cruised into the ultra cool city of Portland, Oregon.
As we made our way from Portland airport, our super friendly Uber driver enthusiastically told us that Alberta Arts District was an awesome neighbourhood, and lucky, because that would be our home for the next four days. He gave us advice as to what to check out and after dropping our bags off at our AirBnB we went out to explore the neighbourhood.
Just a little post-spring cleaning to keep your eyes entertained. Have been wanting to update Sunday Best for a little while but due to all sorts of reasons, it’s taken me a while to get to it.
Not a revolution, just a small evolution, hope you like the fresh new look!

After a long drive from Big Sur, our next stop on our 2015 US holiday was vibrant San Francisco.
Arriving at our AirBnB late on a busy Friday afternoon, The Castro District was buzzing. Commonly known as The Castro, it’s one of the first gay neighbourhoods in the United States and full of personality, great food and a welcoming neighbourhood. It’s also really well positioned for exploring, with the Mission District walking distance away and a main tramline ready to take you directly into the CBD in about 15 minutes.
After our last city jaunt in LA, San Francisco was a welcome change in pace and size. As long as you don’t mind the odd gravity defying hill, San Fransisco is a very walkable city. Its neatly packed streets are filled with colourful homes to uncover, each with their own personality. We quickly felt at home in San Francisco.
