Hello, goodbye

Banner_Melody_2

 

My journey with Solestruck ended last week and the past week leaving Portland and saying goodbye to some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met has been so hard. I ended my time abroad with a trip to Tokyo to be with some friends and I’ve had a blast but I think of Portland and everyone at Solestruck everyday. Right now, I’m back home in Singapore and this will also sadly be my goodbye on the Solestruck blog. It was extremely wifi-unfriendly in Japan so this post has had to wait, but I hope you guys (and everyone else in the office: Hi! I miss you alllll!!!!) like this photo diary of my experience…. I’m getting all teary eyed just typing this!!! Ok pix, pix!

You guys were so nice to allow me to experience to very first thanksgiving. We drank, we gave thanks, we hugged and I got to know everyone a little better, we got real drunk and we danced all night.

Getting a picture of this sign was so difficult, we slowed the car down and screamed real loud as I tried to snap but failed the first time, and then finally a week later, it was perfect! And we screamed even louder because we got the shot!

The city is all about great food and aside from food trucks, everyone brought me to try their favourie spots and it was so much fun exploring and trying new things!

Solestruck will forever be a part of me. And thank you to everyone who has been reading, for allowing me to share my experiences on this blog! And bearing with my super long posts.
