It only took four days in Portland for me to completely fall in love with the West Coast. The evergreens, the teal water, and the coffee shops. The mountains, artsy people, and every bit of passion in between. I could easily see why people choose to spend their entire lives in Oregon, or even just a few hours south in California. Life is seemingly so much less stressful than it is here on the East Coast, and it's all about creating something beautiful for yourself, rather than just chasing after the next thing.
Making this video was an experience in itself, and I'm so excited to continue capturing my travels as they come. I'll be back to the Pacific Northwest so soon. I can just feel it! But for now, I'm just getting glimpses of these trips for you — and me and my wanderlust, too.
