Place 71 – Day 5: Portland, OR – Terrific Lunch

Finally, Some Sleep

We both slept great last night, so much so that we had 10 hours sleep and woke up a bit later.

Our flight out of Portland wasn’t until 19:00, so we had to find something to do for the day.

We sat and ate breakfast then we got ready, packed and checked out of our room.

We looked for some things to do, but we only had 3-4 hours so we couldn’t go too far.

Eventually, we bit the bullet and went to watch a film.

Isn’t It Romantic

We took the short walk to the cinema and bought our tickets for a film called isn’t it romantic.


Isn’t It Romantic

Our Rating:- 5.5/10


We hadn’t seen much about this film, so it was more just to kill time.

It was alright, but nothing to write about (literally!).

Amazing Lunch

We still had about an hour to kill before getting the train, so we went for some lunch.

We heard about a place nearby which is meant to be fantastic, but when we got there it was busy and they only had the bar area for food, which was a little cramped.

Luckily, they told us about another place just down the road which is where we went.

This place was called Cheryl’s and they had a lot of options.

Curtis ate an eggs benedict and Kim had a croque madam.

This food came with a side of a cheesy/oniony/potato combination, which tasted just like a cheese and onion pasty. Weirdly, this was topped with cornflakes.


Cheryl’s On 12th | Portland, OR

Rating:- 9/10


The food was great and the staff were great also. We couldn’t have had a better last day in Portland!

Airport

We got a train to the airport which took about 40 minutes, and it was a quiet train, too.

We got to the airport and used the machine to check in. This printed something saying we would get our seat assigned at the gate, which worried us a little.

We were flying with Delta, so we went to their desk to ask about this, but they said that is normal for the cheap ticket we have purchased.

We sat and relaxed by the gate for an hour or two and then just before boarding we got our seats which were, luckily, next to each other.

Flight #1 – Portland > Seattle

Our flight was easy and fast once we got on it.

We were sat right at the back and had some good leg room.

Airport Antics

We landed in Seattle and had to take the plane train to the S gates.

We got to the correct gate and realised there was nothing nearby, so we went back on the train to B gates so we could grab a drink from Starbucks.

We got our drink and went back to S so we could go to our gate.

We got to our gate and then it said it was now in an A gate, so we got back onto the train and got to the A gate.

As soon as we got comfortable, we realisedthe gate has moved again, so back on the train we went and this time to a B gate.

We got to the B gate and finally boarded the flight!

Flight #2 – Seattle > Victoria

We realised we had comfort plus seats, which was great! We got to board first, had a charging port at our chairs, more leg room and a comfortable chair.

We had a fun time listening to a couple of passengers debate behind us, which helped pass the time!

Victoria

We landed in Victoria and once getting through immigration, we got the transfer bus we booked to the city. Our driver was very funny, cracking multiple jokes and funny lines.

We walked from the bus stop to a hotel which Linda kindly booked for us to stay at for a few nights!

We got in and then went to get a bit of McDonald’s as we were feeling a little hungry.

We got back to the room, exhausted, and went to bed.


This Time Last Year!
