We arrived in Portland 5 days ago after a very long day of travelling, have to say the kids were brilliant apart from when Maxi fell over and smashed his nose in Canadian customs. First night was spent in a hotel and we were very glad to leave the cramped space but now we are in a Townhouse down by the river. It's very nice but too nice for my brood and I think we will have lose a fair amount of our deposit. Will be glad to leave here and find ourselves a nice family home with a back garden.
The city is nice, very clean and a great public transport system. However I'm finding it very difficult to get out with all four kids. First day we go to a great water fountain but Olivia declares she needs a wee so I have to dress all four and try and find public loos. None to be found so I end up having to go to a coffee shop and then she decides she doesn't want to go. That's the end of our day out as I can't face going through all of that again.
So that brings me up to date so far
