Portland – Oregons hip port city

I really would’ve liked to report a bit about the drive from Bend to Portland, but in fact, the street over the Santiam Pass was so smoky, even my car smelled like the one of a smoker after I drove there. The wildfires in southern Oregon happened to be even…

Oregon – old friends and the solar eclipse

Finally, finally, I was allowed to enter the United States again. But before I did that, I drove up to Whistler once more. I got company by Rico, a fellow German who wanted to get down to Oregon for the solar eclipse. We got to know over Facebook and planned…

Yellowhead Highway- let’s go to Saskatchewan!
