I was pretty excited to travel to Portland Oregon last month. I was looking forward to the brisk Pacific coast air, mountain sides covered in lush greenery and the windy roads.
What I hadn’t anticipated after travelling for 12 hours was:
1. Having a GPS from Dr. Suess. The GPS telling us we were just a block away from the hotel when we were really 40 minutes in the wrong direction from the hotel in a dilapidated neighbourhood.
2. The number of underage homeless people. To be fair I’d been warned.
3. After a gruelling trip, arriving at the hotel with the following food choices:
a) Grilled lamb tongue salad
b) Potted duck confit
c) Chicken liver …
When all I wanted was a sandwich.

Well you know after a long trip, being in a cramped car, airplane, whatever, I love unwinding with a crisp 1972 White Riesling and chicken liver. Sounds devine 🙂
It sounds good when you put it like that but……….. 🙂
So did you get the burger?
LOL – no, I didn’t get that far down the menu, I got stuck at the liver 🙂
You ordered the liver?!? Or you found a different place to eat? 🙂
No 🙂 I walked to Starbucks that first night and settled on a coffee and some sort of sugary loaf of goodness…
