Levi only had to work for about five hours during our trip to Portland. Pretty sweet, right??! We felt so incredibly fortunate that this trip worked out so perfectly. While Levi was gone, I stayed in the hotel room and did some work on my laptop. After I was done, I decided it was time to get outside and get some Portland coffee.
I got dressed and took a walk by myself. I love walking in a new city all alone, getting acquainted with it.
I couldn't get over all the trees for the entire trip. It blew my mind that I was in a proper city surrounded by trees. Big trees. Driving on the freeway there is like driving through a forest! The first night we were there, we took a little walk before bed, and I had a full-blown laughing attack over all the trees. It was so weird. And beautiful.
After my little walk, I arrived at the downtown Stumptown Coffee on SW 3rd and ordered a macchiato. When I walked up and said I'd like a macchiato without looking at the menu, the barista asked if I'd ever had coffee there before. I said no, and he went on to explain to me what a macchiato was. Apparently, I don't look like I'm from Portland or like I know anything about coffee... I think he thought that I thought I was ordering a Starbucks caramel macchiato. Ummm, please, Mr. Barista, I know what I'm doing.
GOOOOOOOOOOD stuff. I miss it so much. Levi met me while I was drinking my coffee. We were both all done with work and ready to explore Portland together!!
