8,003 Miles from Portland, Oregon You'll Find...Kangaroos
Are you a traveler who's gotten over buying souvenirs everywhere you go? Maybe you're even totally done with posing for photos of yourself in front of world landmarks? Regardless, there's one sort of touristy thing weas beyond frequent travelersare powerless to resist, and that's waypoint signs.
You'll find these posts with arrow directions at places like trailheads, airports and heavily-trafficked plazas in urban city centres. It was at the latter we photographed this one, which takes pride of place at the entrance to Portland, Oregon's Pioneer Courthouse Square.
While the statue of Portlandia may only be five blocks away, the opportunity to hug a kangaroo is more like 8,003 miles away. Timbuktu? 6,726 miles. Walden Pond? 2,530 miles. Portland, Maine? 2,540 miles. It never gets old!
