I am taking a car trip from Southern California, to Oregon and possibly Washington border. I have been to Ashland, Oregon multiply times, and to be honest i enjoy it very much. People that have visited both states would know the difference, but the ones that have not seen Oregon, let me tell you, it is much better than you would ever expect.
Southern California… well there are couple words that can describe it: desert heat & fake boobs 🙂 These two things that Southern California is mostly known for. With that said, Oregon state to me is like a breath of fresh air! Honestly, the moment you pass that “Welcome to Oregon” sign you feel like you are on the different planet. People are super nice, the weather is not as hot, the green nature makes much more oxygen, that you actually feel like you can breathe and not die from it, and most important there are no sales taxes… so shopping becomes a joy, rather than a teeth pulling splurge 🙂
So this trip i decided to drive all the way to Portland, since i have never been there. I have heard that the weather in Portland is the same as weather in Kiev, Ukraine, because both cities located at the same sea level.. so this time i decided to make sure for myself and see how beautiful Portland is. So my next post will be about Portland 🙂
And while driving for hours i was entertaining myself by reading quotes on Pinterest:
“People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered, forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of being selfish and having ulterior motives, be kind anyway. if you are successful, you’ll win some false friends and true enemies, succeed anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you, be honest anyway. What you spent years building, someone can destroy overnight, build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous, be happy anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow, do well anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough, give the world the best you’ve got anyway. You see, in a final analysis, it’s between only you. It was never between you and them anyway”
