Oregon painted hills - inducing moments of zen courtesy of Travel Oregon

Find your zen in Oregon

Well, it has been one of those weeks, but we’ve found just the tonic over in west coast USA once more, this time in Oregon. As the state is well known for its stunning nature and outdoor experiences, there’s a certain calm magic that passes off onto its people too. So it comes as no surprise that the folk at Travel Oregon have come up with some inspired ways to share it, releasing their favourite ‘Moments of Zen’ in hopes of offering some mindfulness to the rest of the world and to help #KeepYourMindTravelling. They’ve playlisted a series of 20-minute videos, offering OutThere travellers pieces of chilled-out Oregon that have made us want to visit for real.

Check out this little clip of a harpist set to the backdrop of its infamous painted hills and any anxieties you have will just wash away. For the full set, visit Travel Oregon on Youtube or to dive right in and be inspired by what the state has to offer, head to www.traveloregon.com
