Trip to Oregon, USA


While I was away from blogging land, a lot of blogworthy things happened. Time to catch up!

The most important thing that happened during my absence was my trip to Oregon, USA! My boyfriend is half American, and grew up in Eugene, Oregon. During the Holidays I joined his family for a trip there. It was amazing!

So what did I do while I was there?

Fall in love with the cute mail boxes...


Shop for nice goodies like this suuuuuper cute bag!


Drool over this pink camera (but not buy it, I am a Canon girl after all)...


Love Aunt Carol's Flamingo collection, especially the Christmas flamingos...


Buy 3 pairs of Toms shoes...(I had borrow suitcase space from both Mr.Licious and his dad to be able to carry all the stuff I bought home :o)


Went to Portland, where the indie shops are amazing and plentiful!


Tried beer flavored ice cream in this fantastic ice cream shop...


Ate a Voodoo Donut...


Spotted this sweet sign in someones yard...


Bought this awesome monkey...


And these cool Powell's Books magnets...


Saw the Pacific Ocean for the first time...


Apart from all that I also...

- Used hipster iphone photo apps too much
- Found out that Beavers fans are truly despised in Eugene
- Saw an American Football match on TV for the first time (go Ducks!)
- Got to know and love Mr.Licious' American family
- Ate way too much yummie goodies (Pieshakes? WTF? Delicious!)

In other words: I had an absolutely fantastic time, and I can't wait to go back some day!
