Come Visit Me

stay·ca·tion -noun

  1. A trendy and lame euphemism for being lazy and overly frugal in the act of vacationing.
  2. A prime example of the continued bastardization of the English language.
  3. A super fun event when joined by friends from out of town.

This past week, friends Steve and Kristen spent two+ days in Portland in the midst of an out-n-back cross-country road trip. As a result of their visit, numerous novel experiences were enjoyed:

  • Organizing a Portland-By-Bike tour
  • Spectating at the infamous Burnside Skatepark
  • Consuming at Voodoo Doughnuts
  • Truly enjoying the Rose Garden which is apparently at peak season right now
  • Viewing the unbelievable human & swift gatherings at Chapman High School
  • Hiking the spectacular Siouxson Creek Trail

So if you haven’t been to Portland in a while, or just feel the need to hang out with me, you should come give me more good reasons to take days off of work.

  1. Portland looks like such a stunningly beautiful place. Friends of ours from South Africa came over this last week and we got to see them a few times, give them a guided tour of the area. It’s fun to show someone else stuff you love.
