Discovering Portland

Discovering Portland

Every time I’m in Portland, I discover new things the city has to offer. I stumbled into Machus, which sells men’s designer clothing and accessories from around the world and tried on a few items. You can’t beat the zero tax on designer items. 

 I also participated in the Bridgetown Comedy Fest, which is a 5 day comedy festival, featuring comics from around the states. The fest has been around for six years and has been called “the fastest-growing comedy extravaganza in America.” My friend Quincy Jones was premiering his HBO special during the festivies, so it was an event I couldn’t miss. 

International Doughnut Day just so happened to be going on while I was there, so I celebrated with a box of Voodoo Doughnut treats. My trip in total was short but I know I’ll be back again soon to discover more great things.

Traveling with the Birch bag from Poros

Traveling with the Birch bag from Poros

Nothing is worse than running out of power on your mobile devices while you’re traveling. If you’ve ever had this problem before, I would suggest looking at Poros. Simply plug in your mobile device into the Poros bag, press the button on the inside, and you’ll have the power to fully charge your smartphone/tablet multiple times while on the go. This means, no fighting over power outlets at the airport or running out of juice while you wait for your next connection. This stylish bag is perfect for weekend get away trips and fits comfortably in airplane overhead bins. The Birch bag comes with either an mini usb or thunder bolt connection. If you use the code “Antonio20” you’ll get 20% off your first purchase.

 Road Trip Quebec Maritime Part 3

It was nice to get a relaxing break from the previous days activities. Our next stay was at the incredible Hotel Riôtel Matane. This hotel was extremely relaxing and located directly on the beach of the St. Lawrence River. After a brief overnight stay we headed on the road to ferry the river toward Baie-Comeau. The video about is a recap of our experiences.

Road Trip Quebec Maritime: Part 2

What a wild ride! Day 2 of our Quebec Maritime experience landed us on a tree top adventure through the frozen forest. The Aerial Park is located not far from the property we stayed in the night before, Domaine Valga and includes 94 games of increasing difficulty levels. I was not an instant pro at these games but it was fun to attempt.

QUEBEC CITY

QUEBEC CITY

What a charming town! Quebec City is filled with snowed rooftops, narrow roads and puffing chimneys. The area reminds me of a city plucked from Europe and set on the edge of Canada. After walking around I realized there was no way to see everything in my short time, so I settled on a few things.

First, I experienced Old Quebec, which is the only walled city north of Mexico. Walking down the historic streets of Old Quebec is like going through a time warp. The architecture and timeless shops make it hard to believe you’re not in old France. I especially enjoyed the random ice sculptures and fireplace scattered around to warm up your hands.

The second place I experienced was the Hotel de Glace. Hotel de Glace is the only ice hotel in the Americas. I would highly recommend a visit even if you weren’t staying at the hotel. This frozen hotel is equipped with a full bar, fur beds, hot tubs, inner tube slide and dance floor great for dancing.

The third place I would recommend is visiting the Observatoire de la Capitale. The Observatoire de la Capitale gives you the highest viewing area in the city. The windows in this enormous building will give you a 360 degree view of all of beautiful Quebec City.
