Oregon roadtrip: Canon Beach, Seaside, Portland

Since this is still a fairly new blog, I’m going to do some throwback posts about my favourite places I’ve been before I started this. Last year for Easter, we drove from Vancouver to Portland, stopping in Seaside for a few days. I love Oregon. It’s not too far from home, it’s gorgeous, and there are so many outlet malls.

I hated Oslo: what no one tells you before moving to Norway

The photos on Pinterest of Norway are stunning, and most articles on the internet are very positive. Maybe that’s why I was so rattled things didn’t work out, I had different expectations? I was absolutely miserable there. I really wanted to like this county; I was really not expecting to leave with this much negativity built up inside me.
