A Repeat Visit

A trip north to Portland from our home in Southern Oregon always provides the opportunity to check out the culinary scene for which the city is known. While we enjoy visiting places we've never been before, we also like to go back to tried-and-true favorites. Such was the case on our most recent trek to the Rose City, when we dined at clarklewis in the Central Eastside Industrial District. First opened in 2003, the restaurant garnered several accolades right from the start (Best Restaurant of the Year, Oregonian; 10 Most Notable New Restaurants of 2004, The Wall Street Journal; 10 Hottest Restaurants, msn.com) and continues to hold a respected place for its locally sourced, organic, sustainable, seasonal menu in a town where it seems every restaurant makes those claims.

At a recent lunch with a friend, he mentioned my last GT blog about the Las Vegas 51s and said I must love gambling since I go there often.

The Argosaronic Islands Are Calling

The Saronic or Argo Saronic Islands of Greece call travelers to explore its seven small islands and islets brimming with history, natural sites and more. With most easily accessible by boat, the islands’ proximity to ports of Athens make the Saronic Islands an ideal destination for those preferring shorter boat rides. In fact, trips from Athens ports to the islands take only between 10 minutes and two hours, depending on the island you choose, making them perfect for day or weekend trips. From Piraeus port, you can access Hydra, Spetses, Aegina and Poros directly. Come explore these stunning islands with us and find the inspiration to plan your next trip to these islands. Hydra Hydra town curves around a slope overlooking the Argosaronic Gulf like an amphitheater and is considered one of the most romantic destinations in Greece. Most unique to the island is its lack of vehicles. People on the island get around on mules and donkeys as well as water taxis, making for a peaceful and laid-back day. Hydra lies a two-hour ferry ride from Piraeus port in Athens.

On a Lobster Roll
