I love to travel. I seem to visit Portland on all the even years. I moved there in 1998. I have visited there in 2000, 2002, 2004, and now again in 2006. It is a pretty good patern. I would not be unhappy if I visit Portland every other year for the rest of my life.
I am dying for a road trip. There is something that is so freeing about getting in the car and going somewhere. I know that I am a little spoiled because I get a good amount of vacation from work. I took my last vacation in November and the road is calling me again.
I am sorry that Dreamgirl will not be able to come along with me. I would love to take her along with me. I want to show her a city that I love. I want to show the places that I envisiton when I think of Portland. My year in Portland was so important to me, I want share some of it with her.
I am looking forward to seeing my friends up there. It is cool to see Don and Jenna. I miss having lunch with Don ever week. I am hoping to see a few other people while I am up there. I have not kept in the best contact with people in Portland, but they still seem to pop up when I visit.
What I love the most visiting Portland is just hanging out in the city. Portland it a great city to just hang in. I miss Powell Books, the Saturday Market, the Kennedy School, Hathworne ave, and all Pioneer Courthouse Square. I am looking forward to just hanging out in the city.
