Day 7: SEA to JFK to Montauk in 12.5 hrs

Another day full of traveling. I was up by 530a, and heading to the airport by 6. Landed at JFK around 5p, and caught the LIRR out to Montauk at 617p, arriving at 907p. Nothing too exciting really. All I had during the entire day was an orange Tazo tea,…

Day 6: 11 Hours at the City Hostel in Seattle

Day 6: 11 Hours at the City Hostel in Seattle

This was my first experience at a hostel. Ever. I didn't really know what to expect, but since I only needed a place for about 11 hours, I figured it would be fine. The people working at the hostel were great. Very friendly, and helpful. The place was constantly busy,…

Day 6: 15 Hours in Seattle

Day 6: 15 Hours in Seattle

After about 3 hours of sleep, I woke up excited and energized to head to Seattle. Too bad I was the only one who wasn't hungover. We didn't leave Portland until around 1130, and while Jessie manned up and made the 3hr drive to Seattle, the guys & Maya passed…

Day 5: Just Call Me David Lee Roth

After our walking tour of Portland, we went back to the apartment to rest up a bit, where I consumed the second half of my Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. We had dinner at the 5th Quadrant where I ordered more local beer along with a beer and cheese dip. It…

Day 5: So Much More Than Your Average Grilled Cheese

Saturday we started off the day in the most perfect way possible: enjoying the sunny skies while devouring some absurdly delicious grilled cheese. We went to The Grilled Cheese Grill which is yet another food truck in Portland. Except this one is way cooler. They have optional "indoor" seating inside…

Portland People

Portland People

So let me introduce you to the fine people who let me crash with them in Portland: Jessie. I thoroughly annoyed her in 6th grade until she became my friend. Unfortunately I haven't seen or spoken to her much since I moved to New York over four years ago, until this…

Day 4: A Full Day of Food Under $10

Day 4: A Full Day of Food Under $10

Today I got a driving tour of Portland, along with a ton of awesome food. We took a walk through Washington Park, mainly through the International Rose Test Garden. I'm not really a fan of roses. I actually think they look extremely generic and boring. But it was free, and…

Day 3: 4 Airports

Day 3: 4 Airports

It’s day 3 of my 30 day journey, and I’ve already been to JFK all three days, which is an hour and a half commute (each way) from my apartment in Manhattan. After going to bed at 230a last night, I left my apartment this morning at 7a EST, and…
