What’s New?

Well, hello there Virtual Travel Buddies. Just because I’m not currently traveling doesn’t mean I’m not thinking about you.

The Good, The Bad and The Thank-You’s – Oregon

Cathedral Park

It’s my final day in the Beaver State (yes, that’s their real nickname) and I head out to explore downtown St. John’s which is a neighborhood of Portland. Portland has many “neighborhoods,” you see.

A Yurt By Any Other Name

Floor of Pennies

I take the extremely long walk to baggage claim to pick-up my tightly packed luggage and do some more walking to get to the car rental airport shuttle pick-up. Portland International […]
