Poor & Pretty Travels: Portland & New Orleans

Poor & Pretty Travels - Portland New Orleans feature

I was going to post about something completely different today, but I’m too excited about my upcoming travels! I have to share them with you. :)

Poor & Pretty Travels - Portland New Orleans

Next month, I’m heading to Portland, OR for The Hello Sessions (I won a ticket!) and the week after, I’ll be in New Orleans for the Being Boss meet-up. I can’t wait! I have a few must-see’s/must-do’s on my list, but I’d love for your input too!

I’m even more stoked about Portland because my friend Brittany is joining me, so we’ve got this whole girlfriends’ getaway planned. Here are a few things that are definitely on our list:

  • Grab doughnuts at Voodoo Doughnut
  • Sniff around the International Rose Test Garden (hopefully they’re still in bloom!)
  • Ice cream Salt & Straw
  • Sip tea in Lan Su Chinese Garden
  • Eat at Pok Pok
  • Nerd out at Powell’s City of Books
  • Shop in Union Way

And New Orleans — I have been wanting to go back there ever since Suzi and I went in 2008. The food, the music, the voodoo, the culture! We had such an incredible time. I’m really bummed that our tour guide, Lloyd Sesat, passed away a few years ago. He was so fun, and I was hoping to tour with him again. ♥ Besides attending the Being Boss events, here’s my agenda for NOLA:

  • Beignets at Café du Monde (and buy the beignet mix to make at home)
  • Get a tarot card reading
  • Do a walking tour
  • Take a ride on a streetcar
  • Eat. A lot.

Have you been to Portland or New Orleans? I’d love to hear your recommendations in the comments!
