A Portland Photo Diary & Insider Guide

What to Do

Powell’s Books

A visit to Portland is not complete without stopping by one of the most iconic independent bookstores, Powell’s City of Books in the upscale Pearl District. One could easily spend an entire day here with the many floors and stacks of books in this massive bookstore. We even found our hardcover book, Dame Traveler: Live the Spirit of Adventure on the shelves! You can also grab a copy on their website.

Portland Japanese Gardens

The gardens made me feel like I teleported to Kyoto. The Portland Japanese Gardens are located in the West Hills and are incredibly peaceful. On a clear day, you can even experience spectacular views of Mount Hood. You can pre-purchase timed tickets online. $18.95 per adult.

Catch the Sunset from Portland City Grill

Great spot for almost 360 views of PDX from the 30th floor.

Alberta Arts District

This was one of our favorite areas in Portland. Thanks to how multicultural the Alberta Arts District is, the neighborhood is super vibrant with tons of colorful murals and endless trendy restaurants and boutiques. Every inch of the place is photogenic. Explore the area on your own or on a good tour with Eat Adventures!

Day trip to Portland’s Wine Country, Willamette Valley

With over 200 wineries, tons of farmer’s markets and beautiful scenery, the Willamette Valley is the perfect place to spend a day sipping on some of Portland’s best wines and it’s only quick 30 minute drive from downtown. Our favorite wineries were Domaine Roy & fils and Fairsing Vineyard.

Day Trip to Multnomah Falls

This stunning waterfall is an Instagram favorite and is so easy to get to from PDX. You can get there by car or take a shuttle from Portland’s Gateway Transit Center to the falls. Round trip fares are $10.

Where to Eat

Bollywood Theater

In the Alberta Arts District, this spot serves up very authentic Indian street food and Instagrammable interiors.

Bunk Sandwiches

Your go-to spot for a sandwich fix, especially their grilled cheese.

Shalom y’all

We absolutely loved the vibe of this location downtown. The space is small and cozy but the best spot to have lunch is at the gorgeous bar. The service was friendly and the food is just sublime.

1927 s’mores co.

Located downtown, 1927 s’mores co. is the most charming little slice of heaven. The moment you walk in you feel like you’re entering summer camp and the s’mores take you right back to your childhood.

Tusk

Dinner at Tusk elevates the Middle Eastern dining experience. The romantic and trendy ambiance is incredible and the delicious dishes are creative while also maintaining the authenticity of the Mediterranean cuisine.

Hey Love

Fun spot for drinks and group friendly.

Where to Caffeinate

Stumptown Coffee Roasters

We love the location inside the Ace Hotel thanks to its retro ambiance, cozy couches and delicious coffee. Pictured here: Dame Traveler: Live the Spirit of Adventure book.

Case Study Coffee

We absolutely loved this cozy coffee shop in the heart of downtown. Gorgeous interior, friendly service and delicious coffee.

Where to Stay

The Nines, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Portland

This luxury hotel in the centrally located, Downtown PDX has one of the most beautiful views of the city from their rooftop, Departures. The excellent service is consistent with the Luxury Collection hotels and the posh aesthetic makes for a perfect stay.

Ace Hotel

One of our favorites in PDX, the Ace Hotel is a classic. The hipster and vintage style is perfectly aligned with the PDX vibe. It’s located in the Pearl District, making it super easy to explore the area by foot with easy access to some of the city’s top restaurants, bars and shops.

Woodlark Hotel

The interior design of the Woodlark is an Instagrammer’s dream. Light and airy spaces, vintage vibes and lovely attention to detail. Located Downtown.

An Insider’s Guide To Hanoi & Ho Chi Minh City

An Insider's Guide To Hanoi & Ho Chi Minh City

Both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City blew me away with their majestic detailed architecture, storied history, rich culture and, of course, its endlessly friendly locals. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Between the bowls of delicious pho my mother and I slurped, washed down with refreshing Vietnamese iced coffee, always, between the wild honking of horns every hour of the day, between the playful interactions between the children we met along our journey – we became smitten with Vietnam’s two cities. Here is an Insider’s Guide to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

Hanoi

Hanoi, the cultural capital of Vietnam, has endless sights and destinations to see. Truly, the best moments in Hanoi happen in a flash. And luckily, the city is extremely walkable, so we were able to soak in every fleeting, beautiful moment.

Old Quarter

Hanoi’s Old Quarter is endlessly interesting. You’ll find locals hanging the laundry out to dry, colorful displays outside of family owned businesses and restaurants, souvenir shops galore and spices wafting through every inch of the area.

Cong Caphe

This cafe was so adorable! Cong Caphe is a trendy cafe chain in Hanoi, with nostalgic twist. I highly recommend a visit!

Loading T

If you love architecture, make a stop at Loading T Cafe! It’s located in an aged, French colonial home with the most gorgeous tiled floors. Their menu is filled with all sorts of treats, perfect for a break while walking around the city. And, obviously, order their Vietnamese iced coffee! (I’m not kidding, if you travel and love coffee… Hanoi is your place!)

Lotte Hotel

Take a look at these views, and ask me how beautiful this hotel is. I couldn’t recommend the Lotte Hotel more! Waking up to the sprawling Hanoi city skyline below us was a dream come true. It felt like we were able to wake up in the clouds every morning. Add delicious pho and Vietnamese iced coffee delivered fresh for room service into the mix? If I weren’t such an adventurer, I’d stay here all day long!

Hanoi Railway Street

The tightly compacted Railway Street in the Old Quarter is so stunning. Yes, trains do pass by regularly! You’ll see the daily trips locals make to and from their homes (which are scary close to the tracks). I love little areas like this. It feels like a slice of authentic Vietnam every traveler dreams of.

St. Joseph Cathedral

St. Joseph Cathedral is a French colonial cathedral was constructed in 1882, with neo-Gothic/Parisian inspired architecture. It truly stands out in the city – and even I caught myself thinking I was somewhere in France when we passed by!

Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City delighted us in every way. The bustling former capital of Vietnam, also known as “Saigon” is busting at the seams with energy and life. You’ll find much more traffic, crows and chaos – but also serene scenes of local life, adorable neighborhoods and temples galore. Here’s some of my favorite finds in Ho Chi Minh City.

An Insider's Guide To Hanoi And Ho Chi Minh City

Cafe Gian Giao

Translated loosely, Cafe Gian Giao means “Cafe Scaffolding” – which is obviously inspired by the industrial, constructional vibe of the eatery. You’ll find traditional fishing canoes filled with plants next to concrete electricity poles. It’s a totally unique place to grab a bite that I’d highly recommend!

An Insider's Guide To Hanoi And Ho Chi Minh City

Cu Chi Tunnels

Travelers who want to learn more about the Vietnam War should definitely check out the tunnels of Cu Chi. The immense maze of connected tunnels shows how ingenious the Vietnamese battle plans were. So many traps, puzzles and mazes! It’s impressive to experience each long and thin tunnel… just be sure to not get lost!

Independence Palace

Independence Palace, or the Reunification Palace, was built on the site of the former Norodom Palace. Visitors can visit the well preserved palace, including its original tanks from the Vietnam War, its quiet gardens, secret rooms and command bunker!

An Insider's Guide To Hanoi And Ho Chi Minh City
An Insider's Guide To Hanoi And Ho Chi Minh City

Caravelle Hotel

The Caravelle was once home to the Australian and New Zealand Embassy, and the main center of communication during the Vietnam war… but now it’s become quite a fabled placed. It’s featured in many Vietnamese books! It’s worth a trip to see for yourself!

An Insider's Guide To Hanoi And Ho Chi Minh City

Saigon Opera House

You don’t have to be an opera aficionado to appreciate this gem! The concert hall puts on regular performances… so be sure to check out what is playing when you visit.

People’s Committee Of Ho Chi Minh City

The grand and opulent exterior of the People’s Committee building is a sight to behold! The building serves as the City Hall, so it’s not open to visitors – but the outside is stunning.

Rex Hotel

The Rex Hotel is a perfectly situated hotel in Saigon. Our accommodations were super welcoming and warm (always appreciated!), and I absolutely adored the overgrown greenery in its open air spaces. Gorgeous!

An Insider's Guide To Hanoi And Ho Chi Minh City
An Insider's Guide To Hanoi And Ho Chi Minh City

Notre Dame Cathedral

Another French-inspired Cathedral in the heart of Vietnam. The Notre Dame Cathedral (of Ho Chi Minh City that is, not Paris!) had all of its intricate tiles and materials shipped in from France. It’s a great place to see some of the European influence in the city right downtown.

An Insider's Guide To Hanoi And Ho Chi Minh City

Central Post Office

Saigon’s Central Post Office’s yellow and green exterior is a stunner. You’ll find tourists galore here, taking photos and exploring its expansive interiors. It’s a great spot to mail a post card or letter home while in Vietnam (while also getting some stunning photographs).

An Insider's Guide To Hanoi And Ho Chi Minh City
An Insider's Guide To Hanoi And Ho Chi Minh City

Explore Saigon’s Bustling Streets

Of course, take some time out of your schedule to just soak in all of Ho Chi Minh’s busy street life. I loved snapping photograph after photograph of every scene that unfolded in the city. So many flowers, overgrown greenery, waves upon waves of motorbikes and colorful exteriors of the downtown area.

The Loft

The Loft’s white bricked interiors are so welcoming! This cafe is actually up above an art gallery, where you’ll find marble tables, lots of natural light… and of course, delicious Vietnamese iced coffee! It’s the perfect place to take a break while exploring.

An Insider's Guide To Hanoi And Ho Chi Minh City

The Reverie

Feast your eyes! The Reverie is a bedazzled jewel of a hotel, offering some of the most opulent lodgings in the country. The interior decor is endlessly detailed and intricate, I loved exploring the different rooms and lobby areas – just soaking in all the color and textures. It’s truly an unrivaled beauty in Vietnam!

Thien Hau Temple

As a culture loving traveler, I always take the time to research the important historical and religious sites wherever I go. The Thein Hau Temple was a must-do in my book, as it was dedicated to the Chinese sea goddess Mazu and the deified form of Lin Moniang – who saved her family from a typhoon with her powers. I loved watching the locals come to the alter and lighting incense. It’s always a blessing to be able to experience these sort of places first hand!

Advice Instagrammer's Guides Travel Planning

This Instagram Hack Will Make Planning Your Next Trip Totally Easy

Instagram has released a small yet mighty update to its platform that is perfect for travelers looking for the best hidden gems around the world. As we’ve written before, Instagram is our favorite itinerary planning tool. Today, I’m sharing the Instagram hack that will make planning your next trip totally easy. Let’s go!

Saved Locations

When a tagged location is shared on Instagram, clicking the link will take you to a page filled with other shared photos from that same place. I love skimming through image after image, finding inspiration in every snap! Should I happen to find a unique twist or vantage point, I’ll save that photo into my “saved” section (which looks like a little flag or book mark on the right side). Previously, this was as good as it got! But not anymore.

Now you can directly click the linked location. Why is this such a win? Well, these links will directly take you to your favorite mapping application. (I happen to love Google Maps to save locations and sights when I’m adventuring.) This is probably the greatest Instagram hack because it makes planning an absolute breeze. Simply click a location link, open your map, save the location. Boom. There you go!

7 Most Picturesque Spots In Tasmania’s Western Wilds

7 Most Picturesque Spots In Tasmania's Western Wilds

Tasmania’s Western Wilds will leave you dreaming of the expansive, seemingly never-ending, ever-changing landscape for years to come. It’s just part of the experience of seeing Australia’s hidden gem with your very own eyes. Today, I’m sharing seven of the most picturesque spots I discovered along my adventure in the lone, jaw-dropping area of Tasmania.

Cradle Mountain From Dove Lake

Cradle Mountain steals the show when it comes to the most picturesque spots in the Western Wilds… but ensure to build enough time in your schedule to stick around the area in case the mountain is covered in clouds! The Cradle Mountain area gets on average, 242 rainy days a year. February has the least rainy days and August has the most so plan accordingly!

Experience The Gordon River Via Cruise

Take in the equally serene and epic views of the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Gordon River. We loved experiencing the natural beauty from our cruise! Seeing the mountains and landscapes smoothly appear in front of us while on the upper deck was the perfect vantage point for taking in the wildlife of the Gordon River area.

Insider Guide To Exploring Tasmania's West Coast

Queenstown

Learn a little bit about the Western Wilds past by visiting its quaint and quirkiest town – Queenstown. This former mining town has become a must-see stop along your journey, if you ask me! It’s also home to what the locals call – moonscapes – that are truly one of a kind!

Insider Guide To Exploring Tasmania's West Coast

Pumphouse Point

When we began preparing for our trip to Western Tasmania, one of the first beautiful spots we came across and instantly added to our wishlist was the Pumphouse Point Retreat. We’re always seeking out unique experiences for hotel stays… and this place exceeded our expectations. The property offers many photo opportunities, especially the Pumphouse itself which you can also stay in.

7 Most Picturesque Spots In Tasmania's Western Wilds

Nelson Falls

During our drive from the Pumphouse in Lake St. Clair to Queenstown, we made a pit stop at Nelson Falls which was absolutely breathtaking and a nice way to take a break from the 2 hour drive. I couldn’t recommend adding this to your adventures around Tasmania’s Western Wilds more!

7 Most Picturesque Spots In Tasmania's Western Wilds

Mount Owen In Queenstown

Mount Owen’s landscape is one that we could have spent hours and hours taking in. Set on the blue waters of Lake Burbury and conveniently located directly east of Queenstown, Mount Owen is a photographers delight and the perfect destination to add while when road tripping around the Western Wilds.

Tip: To capture this view, book a tour with Roam Wild Tasmania since you can only access the summit of Mount Owen on a guided tour with this local Queenstown tour company.

From The Seat Of A Scenic Flight Over The Western Wilds

We took a scenic flight from the Par Avion Cambridge Airport and I truly wish this experience for every traveler visiting Tasmania’s Western Wilds! There’s nothing like seeing the landscape unfolding in front of you from above.

An Instagrammable Guide To Mexico City

An Instagrammer's Guide To Mexico City

I’m certainly not the type of traveler who bases their adventures solely around what is beautiful, but I’ll tell you what – sometimes timing is everything. I say this because I just so happened to plan a trip to beautiful Mexico City in the midst of its peak Jacandra bloom season. When I say that Mexico’s colors and vivid culture was bursting into life, I’m not exaggerating. There is so, so much to love about this city! Today, I’m taking you along my journey to show you an Instagrammer’s guide to Mexico City’s most picturesque and gorgeous spots. Here we go!

An Instagrammer's Guide To Mexico City

Where To Explore

A heads up to flower lovers who want to see Mexico City’s famous Jacandra blooms – come at the end of March! We found the most concentration of blooms near Bella Artes… but they truly are scattered around the city! March is also the perfect time to explore because you can take in the Festival del Centro Histórico de CDMX, Mexico City’s biggest cultural party of the year!

An Instagrammer's Guide To Mexico City

Zocalo City & Historic Center

Do yourself a favor and schedule yourself some time to just walk through Mexico City’s many districts and centers. The historical center of the city is simply a joy to walk through. There is so much to take in and so many beautifully aged and modern sights side by side!

Palacio de Bellas Artes

This is a hub of great places to explore as the gorgeous Palacio is very close to a quaint park to take in the blooming flowers, as well as the House Of Times (Casa de los Azulejos)!

Roma Notre, Condesa & Polanco

These neighborhoods of the city simply stole my heart. Roma Notre (my favorite), Condesa and Polanco are all walking distance apart and stocked with some of the most charming homes and architecture. Get your cameras ready, because these sections are delightfully cool and covered with greenery.

Where To Stay

As you might have guessed, I’m a big fan of using Hotel Tonight for these quick, yet meaningful long weekend trips! I love that no matter how last minute, it’s there to help me find centrally located, safe and accomodating lodgings no matter what (p.s. you can use the code “nyakoub” for $25 off your stay). Give it a try and thank me later!
​​​​​

Hotel Zocalo Central

Hotel Zocalo Central has one of the best rooftop cafes/bars in the city, if you ask me. We loved waking up at sunrise to take in the beautiful waking city while sipping on coffee. Centrally located to the city’s main square where the festivities were starting, and so accommodating… I’d love to come back!

A slice of Paris in Latin America. This station along Line 2 and Line 8 of the Mexico City Metro system immediately transported me to my time living in Paris. It is located in the Colonia Centro district and truly popped against the purple blooms around it!

An Instagrammer's Guide To Mexico City

Palacio de Bellas Arte

This is a must for culture travelers! The Palacio de Bellas Arte is the hub of Mexico City’s notable art events. But besides music, dance, theater and art – it’s an excellent place to lose yourself to inspiration while taking it in!

House of Tiles (Casa de los Azulejos)

The “House of Tiles” is Mexico City’s 18th-century palace built by the Count del Valle de Orizaba family. Take in its exterior, covered by blue and white tile of the Puebla state. Even if you don’t have the time to go in, it’s absolutely a must to take it in from the outside!

An Instagrammer's Guide To Mexico City

Chapultepec Castle

This castle has some of the best views. I mean if historians say that the sights from the terraces “can’t be surpassed in beauty in any part of the world” – why would you not go see for yourself?

An Instagrammer's Guide To Mexico City

Museo Soumaya

This moderist exterior really stands out in Mexico City’s skyline. Perfect for art lovers, the Museo Soumaya is perfect for a rainy day to take in some of the coolest art exhibits in the city.

An Instagrammer's Guide To Mexico City

Coyoacán Area

Museo de Frida Kahlo

Learn from our mistake – ensure that you buy the tickets at least 3 or 4 days in advance online or else they will be sold out! It happened to us! Needless to say, we were devastated as I’m a huge fan of Frida. Great excuse to go back to Mexico City, though, right?

An Instagrammer's Guide To Mexico City

Palacio Postal

The coolest postal building ever? I think yes! The Palacio de Correos de México aka the “Correo Mayor” is located in the historic center of Mexico City, very close to the main downtown area. Take in its opulence and beauty!
