The Weekend Edition: May 4th, 2014

If you’re new to the game, The Weekend Edition is where I informally retell my weekly happenings as they relate to travel, culture, and entertainment.

The Paper Airplane is back on schedule. I took a brief hiatus due to being out of commission for the past three weeks but I'm excited to get back to exploring the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Although I haven't been able to be out and about, I booked a campsite in Big Sur for the Pacific Coast Highway road trip happening later this month, read up on Oregon hiking trips, and did a little research for my dSLR upgrade. That being said, this Weekend Edition will be short and sweet. Be sure to follow along on Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest for the latest happenings and travel inspiration. This May I will be tweeting Portland's best view points of the city each week. Do you have any favorite places to see the city in PDX? Tweet me your spot and I will do my best to investigate. 

Reminisced over Tolentino, Italy on my first photo diary post
The first of many photo diaries of my travels, A Day Trip to Tolentino, Italy was a spontaneous trip my friends and I took while living in the central Italy region of Le Marche. If you are planning a trip to Italy in the near future, Le Marche is a great region to explore if you are looking to see an authentic side of Italian life and travel off the beaten path. Not only is the is the landscape and architecture in this central Italy region stunning, the history is rich, and the people are some of the most genuine and kind people that I had the pleasure of meeting while in Italy. Whenever I am homesick for Macerata, the Marche town I lived in for a few months, I follow along with Marche Breaks on Instagram and Twitter. Grazie, Marche Breaks.

As always, thanks for reading The Paper Airplane. I love to hear from all of you and am so happy that I've had the chance to meet some of my readers over the past few weeks. Don't be a stranger, feel free to reach out in the comments or via social media. 

Adventure on,
