I’m writing this as we just got home from our 48 hour train ride and I’m a little bit sleepy. We had an amazing time in Portland and Seattle and will be sharing pictures from our trip soon! The highlight of the trip for me was driving up the Oregon coast and exploring little seaside towns, the beach (too cold to swim!), and ending our excursion in Astoria (where The Goonies and a bunch of other movies were filmed) in a brewery overlooking the river with a glass bottom to see seals.
I was nervous about taking the train for such a long time, but it really wasn’t too bad and went by relatively quickly. We spent our time taking photos, reading, talking, eating, and sleeping. The food is actually pretty good on the Amtrak so that helps. The views were absolutely gorgeous, we went through the mountains in Washington and Idaho and saw the plains in Montana. We saw rivers, lakes, waterfalls, lots of animals including a bald eagle, and also a row of people mooning the train. So I suppose you could consider it a success, haha.
Anyway, these photos are of the last outfit shoot I have to share with you from Novelstyle. Ileana who runs the shop was sweet and will give you 20% off with the code ADVENTURE20. Most of the brands she sells, if not all of them, are European and definitely not something you can easily find if you live in the United States and all of them are adorable!
