Mine are 5 and 2 1/2 and we still struggle to find something perfect that they can both do. I know as they get older it will be easier, and they can go farther.

I love it. Great video!!! December 19, 2019 Reply Left brain Society EVERYBODY STOP COMING TO PORTLAND. YOUR OVERCROWDING EVERYTHING December 19, 2019 Reply T T You forgot to mention the large quantity of independent high quality coffee roasters and coffee shops spread around the city. Stumptown is actually pretty meh compared to the others. December 20, 2019 Reply Ted P Be sure to visit the heroin needle pile and pdx shit stack December 20, 2019 Reply Ted P Sad that people think Portland is a nice City. It used to be a nice City. I know I grew up there. Now it's a liberal shit hole complete with sidewalk tents, and heroin addicts on every corner.

Stay away…. December 21, 2019 Reply Thomas Daniels Portland is garbage, glad I escaped the progressive "utopia" of tolerance. AZ kicks the shit out of OR December 21, 2019 Reply Pepper Jack Maybe a little less face time would be nice. We're here to see the city December 21, 2019 Reply withelisa I have unknowingly followed your formula on all my travels! Lovely. Cafés and bookstores across southwest Ireland were especially… humanizing. Comfortable culture December 21, 2019 Reply b guitar I live in Portland and it's nothing but fruitcake hipsters and trendy posers. December 22, 2019 Reply David V. I'm not sure why this video was being promoted to me so hard, but I took the bit and really have to express how disappointed with myself for having taken the time. Seems the content is more about the vlogger than it is about Portland. Recommendations are obvious and generic at best, dressed up with slick production value (but also generic for youtube content). The picks could be find in ANY tourist guide about the city. If you are looking to explore the really interesting parts of Portland, leave the city center and pick up a copy of "Fugitives and Refugees" by local Chuck Palahniuk December 22, 2019 Reply Josh Ryan Should film all the homeless people here in portland… Then no one will never come here. December 22, 2019 Reply Fantasy Animates! Welcome to Portland, Oregon! If you look to your right, there’s a whole neighborhood of homeless people! And if you look to your left, there’s a naked man taking a bath in the water fountain! 😁 December 22, 2019 Reply Beautiful Rosemary Went home to visit last week and it's been completely taken over by transplants. It's still and always home, but wow. I wish it hasn't become so popular because it's losing some of that magic it's known for by all of the residents. Traffic was never that bad! Prices were lower. It's crazy! December 22, 2019 Reply p1cha Broooo stop coming here it’s sooo busy December 22, 2019 Reply Juice Iz Infinite Pdx! I love this, and your edits December 22, 2019 Reply Diamonique Taylor The video was very nice, I'll give you that. We thank you for the love, But PLEASE, FFS, can people stop moving here! As a native portlander, I'll tell you rn that it is NOT that glamorous and friendly 💀 yes, the nature is beautiful. yes, we have a crap ton of coffee shops and food trucks. But thanks to the mass migration of people coming to live here, the rent is through the roof and its ridiculous at this point. The city is over crowded and public transportation is a nightmare 90% of the time. I'm shocked that you didn't capture any homeless cities, which are literally everywhere. Pretty sure you avoided that to get your "flawless and lovely" video of here. Even though downtown has astounding buildings, the homeless and needle findings are worse. If you try to go anywhere on the freeway during rush hour, good luck with that because you wont be getting to your destination any time soon. And I might as well just throw in there that people cannot fucking drive to save their lives, all knowledge on rules of the road and driving are basically just thrown out the window with 98% of the people who drive. Mm, and If you plan on crossing on a 2 way street, be extra cautious because some people will look right at you and keep driving as you're trying to walk across a designated crosswalk. Not to mention the Gentrification getting noticeably worse, but we wont talk about that since alot of people seem to be blind as bats about it. But yeah, its gorgeous 🙂 December 22, 2019 Reply Drew Bonifacio GOD NO STOP SENDING PEOPLE HERE LOL December 23, 2019 Reply Jovan ok so the first one made me laugh she just in Hong Kong they do french toast the best hummmm then she says but oh in Portland they have a number of things they do the best what kind of backwards shit it this like what!!!! hahahahahaaaaaaaa……. December 23, 2019 Reply Jovan then on top of that she doesnt even know the names of the places shes been in these cities that means shes just the follower in these trips and not the planner of these trips so its not really her travel formula smdh December 23, 2019 Reply Jovan im glad that i travel and im not a first time traveler bc this list is lame as hell hahahahaaaa good luck if you are getting into travel and this is your reference…..then if Portland is home why dont you know the names of things interesting!!!!

Or is your life so empty that this is an only way to fill it up? December 23, 2019 Reply gustavo ramirez-rangel Too many homeless, there's garbage everywhere, the police are really pigs December 24, 2019 Reply Step Moon LEAVE US ALONE December 25, 2019 Reply Hans Gartner Fantastic review 💙 I have lived in Portland my whole life and you captured it perfectly. Seriously. Much love 💙 December 25, 2019 Reply Nick De Augustine I live in Portland and haven't done half of these, haha. Also, bad pun incoming… @4:29 Could it be that your son Henry is the grand or high king of hiking…? high king/hiking… sorry, that was bad, unlike this video, which is great! December 26, 2019 Reply Brianna Crowley I just got back from a trip to Miami where I journaled my "Recipe for a Good Vacation" because I needed to process. I love how this video articulated something so close to that through your lens. Also, if you are ever in Harrisburg, PA (Capitol building is objectively the most beautiful in 50 states!) you should check out Midtown Scholar–largest independent used book store on East coast (might need to fact check that stat) and Little Amps–fantastic local coffee shop and roaster that is delightfully cozy. Finally, we have so many hikes, but Eagle Rock will give you that view and is just a quick drive out of the little city on a river. Plus you could connect with Cody Wanner. Seems like a perfect match for your formula–just sayin' 🙂 December 27, 2019 Reply Luca Monti You are truly fake…. December 28, 2019 Reply Stephanie Vizcarra Love your videos! You should do a look book video showing all of your amazing style while traveling. December 28, 2019 Reply Cole Schlaht Portland, liberal ran cess pool full of criminals, drug addicts and homeless. Stay away the place has been ruined. December 28, 2019 Reply An Alternate Perspective We have a really similar formula. 1. Find the best food. 2. Find the best scotch bar. 3. Find the best coffee shop. 4. Area with locally owned shops.. 5. Best bakery. 6. Ask the locals what is not to be missed in that city.

Drug use rampant homelessness and up ticking in crime and a police force that is too small to deal with all of it. Not to mention the incompetent city government that we have running this place January 1, 2020 Reply James Asparro Great video. I grew up and lived in Portland for many years. My romantic book, "Salt of the Earth a Portland Story by Dr. James Asparro captures Portland in novel form. It's available at Amazon in ebook, paperback, and audiobook. Portland is a great place. January 2, 2020 Reply rebecca gerringer DON’T come here….it’s really really bad…high cost of living, they don’t like outsiders (not from here), it’s dirty and people aren’t friendly!!! Be warned!

Kristen Hannah fan here too!🙌🌹 January 23, 2020 Reply Kai P. Cruz I've been traveling for 28 years but I love the idea of your formula! What a great idea. I wanna try it. Also I love that your example is Portland. My husband grew up in Oregon so we go every year. And even if we've traveled everywhere, Portland will always be in my top 3 fave places in the world, of all time. January 23, 2020 Reply Wannabe Portlandy It's 2020 and people who call themselves Portlanders are still complaining about the homeless or that people are moving to Portland. I've heard of these complaints for nearly 9 years now it is so immature. First of all, if you get out of your bubble, literally almost every single city in the world has issues. Paris for instance, has so many issues that make your complaints look amateur night and yet they embrace tourists with open arms. There are countries who are at 90% below poverty like the Philippines who, despite their circumstances go over and beyond to be hospitable to tourists. My husband and his family are all from Oregon, some were born there, others grew up there and my husband has a ton of friends from Oregon who guess what–have all moved out of Oregon. People move in and out of States. People will come and go. Get over it. Also, can you not over exaggerate the number of people who visit Portland? Like seriously. I love Portland but literally only a few people in the whole world and in the whole of the United States who actually want to visit Portland. I have friends who have traveled the world and have zero interest to visit Portland. Portland is only a big deal to Portland fans but not a big deal in the global scene. CHILL. It will never have the number of tourists New York or California will ever get. January 23, 2020 Reply jian ruan Portland is where I was born and still here lol!!! January 24, 2020 Reply Marco Angelo Portland isn't worth the trip. Bunch of deadbeat hipsters with a woke complex who either bartend or schlep coffee. January 25, 2020 Reply Kayla Schregardus im from here I always wonder why people want to come LOL. I hate it, hardly and sun and mostly rain for 9 months. Traffic and housing is crazy, best food is food carts. Diversity seriously lacks, portland loves gentrification, any more reasons NOT to move?! January 25, 2020 Reply Rachel Headley Looved this Iz! (I saw Johnnys travel formula video too and I have to say yours is my fave 🤫) If you ever go back to Toronto and want the best city views I lived there for 12 years and always recommend visitors take the ferry to Toronto Island and ride it back at sunset, you’ll get the perfect city views backlit by sunset – it’s dreamy!Ps have you read the Great Alone yet? It blew me away. January 25, 2020 Reply Running Otaku Great video! I’m a few-years-ago transplant to Portland living in Mt. Tabor. One more suggestion to add to your list of things to do: visit a local farmer’s market or supermarket. My family loves seeing what’s grown locally and how much it costs, especially when overseas. January 26, 2020 Reply Christine Sheldon I actually live very very close to portland actually in seaside and I'll admit in portland yes theres many homeless but realize many of them chose to me homeless cause of how high rent is but over all it's a very fun place there and going ice skating is awsome also there food is great the hospitals are really nice and very good at their jobs it is fun to visit for vacation aswell as going to seaside to see the beach,etc so many fun things I love it. Also so many fun events as well as lots of celebrities come here and do special events etc infact I met Jeffree star at the Washington square mall for the morphe store grand opening January 26, 2020 Reply J Tech U just got a new follower!!
