Random Information

It’s amazing how much useless information you can pick up just by chewing fat with the locals. Apparently:

  • Ladies wearing makeup work in the strip clubs. Portland people believe that you only wear that in Hollywood. How niche is Portland? They have a vegan only strip club (apparently). I am all for seeing attractive women but I don’t want to eat tofu doing it.
  • If you don’t have cream in your coffee you are considered some kind of social outcast. You would get more respect if you said, “I have killed three people in a State Forest”.
  • If you do not have a bike you are considered in the same group as point 2 above.
  • The cheapest place to buy chocolates (1st hand experience) and cigarettes (hearsay) is any pharmasist. They are everywhere, Target and every 2nd street corner.
  • Portlanders are the only people in the USA that think because you are from Australia you don’t drink Fosters and see kangaroos everyday.

Until tomorrow, remember to cheer for Nadal. It’s Australia Day here so I am having a quiet beer, hoping that a damper foodtruck will appear from somewhere.

Even Subway (which is 24/7) want to feed you ’till you explode…

… and here is a hot chocolate from Creo, a local chocolatier. I looked like an idiot when I starting licking the plate, because those speckles are part of the plate, not part of the dusting of chocolate.

This blog started life as a series of emails with poor quality photography to family and friends whilst overseas to let them know I was still breathing.  It has since grown into it’s own little part of the internet.  A place where I ramble on about my love of travel and food.  Hopefully you find some enjoyment and inspiration out of it for future travel plans.  I have got a buzz from seeing it evolve into this flurry of pixels. 

If you like what you see, subscribe below and updates will be sent straight to your inbox the next time I am travelling and/or eating.  The only spam you may get is of the food variety, but then again I don’t care for that tinned stuff anyway.
