ahh portland and melbourne! yes usually when one visits one they visit the other!
Hehe. I am visiting friends in both places. You have to fly through the East Coast of Australia to get to from Perth to the USA so it's not as illogical as it seems!
If you need any Melbourne tips I am more than happy to help and my brother just visited Portland recently, I will quiz him for you!
cannon beach is gorgeous! and there is some fab hiking outside of portland. gah! you are going to have a blast!!!
Oooh, how exciting, I'll put my thinking cap on for you Melbourne-wise (have you been before?). I look forward to hearing about Portland when you get back. Lx
Please share some of your brain poops (or loveliness).
