30 Seconds in Portland

Hi!

Portland. I was there. Not for long, but I was there. How do you do Portland in in less than 20 hours? Well this is how I did it.

10pm – Go to a brewery, we arrived pretty late so we popped into a pub for some grub and a drank.

1am?? – Go to sleep? Prepare for next day.

Slumber

9am – For my new internet friends please note that I am not an early riser. If I was though, I would have snuck away to check out Forest Park, it is supposed to be incredible. But since I am a zombie, until I have a fat coffee that is precisely what I did. So 9am..Have coffee (not from Starbucks) ask the barista what you should do for the day and then find yourself a cute delicatessen for breakfast. Latkes for errbody.

10am – Go to Powell’s Bookstore and go get a book! That place is like nine stories tall and an entire block long. I can guarantee they probably have what you are looking for.

11am – Go thrifting.. duh. It’s Portland.

12pm – Sit in a square; or in a park or something that is outside and nature friendly and surrounded by people. There are a ton. Pioneer Courthouse Square, O’Bryant Square, Chapman Square. Just to name a few. Click here for a full list. This would be a good time to start reading your new book.

1pm – Talk to a hippie trying to save the children on your way to find lunch. (This will take at least 20 minutes, but it is kind of crucial for the Portland experience that this happens.. so just do it.)

1:25pm – Go find lunch.. more specifically go find lunch at Food Truck Corner.. Do I need to explain why or do we understand each other? Here is the address.

2pm – Savor the misty weather of this yummy Northwest city. Enjoy your lunch. Walk back to your hotel and pack.

This is how you do a Portland overnight in less than 20 hours. What did I miss? How do you do Portland in less than a day?

Happy Friday friends.

Colombia not Columbia

It’s urgent that you visit Bogotá. Bogotá lives in Colombia. Colombia has things that are important. Things that are important include coffee, cheese, arepas, fried things, corn sent from heaven, a bread delivery service, etc. and that’s really all you need to know.. yes. Post over.

You should also know it is Colombia.. not Columbia. It’s not the sportswear or the University.. we are talking about the country people. Please do not get confused. Trust me when I tell you, I just spared you a very, abusive scolding, from an extremely, proud Colombian, at some point in your life and yes take note that most Colombians fall under the extremely proud category… And to answer your question, it’s true, I did receive that scolding at one point in time from a very proud Colombian, thanks Laura. Viva Colombia!

Go to Colombia!

As you all know, I took time to travel through part of the great country of Colombia this past weekend. So I made you a video.. I know I was supposed to bring you a video on Friday, but I didn’t.. so here it is now. I hope you enjoy! Can’t wait to tell you more about my trip later this week!

Until then, see you in Portland!

To Colombia We Go!

Hello. I’m supposed to be writing this post from New York, specifically Flushing, however my travel plans were disrupted by a few birds that decided life was just way too much for them to handle. They committed birdie suicide by flying directly into some very sharp propellors, which left me stranded in St. Thomas – poor me right? Right. I didn’t even get to leave the airport. Wah. So unfortunately, I am coming to you live from my couch, in not so sunny South Florida.

That being said apparently this is becoming the blog of weekly updates and unfulfilled plans.. plans that just do not quite make it to the drawing board. My initial post was going to be a quick “How To..” post about an over looked city with hella good dim sim; but since I never made it, you will never know. *MUAHAHAHA* cue villain serenade. Just kidding, it’s an important piece that I’m planning with a killer photog friend of mine Magthree ***Featured Below***!  So give it time.. give it time.

Compliments of Magthree.. Boss Status

Florida Keys Livin’

Good Morning Friday! As you know Fridays are for videos, and this specific Friday is for videos of the Florida Keys! YAY. The fam-bam and I take an annual trip to Key Largo every summers-end. This summer our trip was almost canceled because of the lovely Harmine the Hurricane. Alas she skipped right over us! I’m trying to get better at this video thing, so bare with me for the time being!

However, if you do find my videos semi-barable, make sure you subscribe to my YouTube Channel to get all the current videos before anyone else!

Happy Friday! xx Kye

The Two Week Rule

Good Morning Friends! This is going to be a quick post since I drowned you with words last week. Think 500 words or less. Also I am in Atlanta and its 8am and I was not prepared to bring you top-notch info today, I was in The Florida Keys all weekend. Oops. Rest assured I have a video prepared for Friday, just no words to go along with it.

Actually I intended on having words, but I had quite the day yesterday; after realizing I was working at 10am NOT 10pm, I spilled coffee on myself not once but twice, split my finger open, was blocked in by a construction vehicle when I was leaving for my already late start to work and got a run in my tights while en route to said job. So without further ado here is the two-week rule.
