One of the best things about travelling is coming back home. I always appreciate having my little nest more once I have been away from it for a while. We are back from spending a week in Portland, Oregon for the Evolution 2010 conference that Reed attended. Besides the conference, we also spent three days exploring the region in general.

Oregon might just be the most beautiful place I have ever been. We went to the coast, drove along the Columbia River Gorge, traveled through huge forests and out to a beautiful plateau. When we were in town, we were in the midst of a large, decently old, city with museums and restaurants, weekly markets, open-air music, and with no need at all for a car. People were very friendly and laid back, and they don’t drive aggressively (a huge change from Houston!).

It wasn’t all perfect, of course. Portland was cold–it made its way up to 80 degrees one of the days we were there, and people acted like they were melting. Most of the time it was between 50 and 70. There were many people living on the street and begging. Things were more expensive there than other places we have lived.

All in all, though, I would love to go back. There was no way to do more than the tiniest fraction of what interested us. Over the next few days, I’ll write up our trip in more detail and with pictures.


More pictures, please!

Ooh, ooh, more details, please!

Anyway, I’m glad you liked Oregon overall. I hope you’ll get a chance to go back sometime in the not-too-distant future and see more of the state. Southern Oregon has a lot to offer such as Crater Lake, the Oregon Caves, whitewater rafting, the Southern Oregon coast (and the redwood forest in Northern California which you’ll have to drive through to get there), and wonderful smaller towns and cities like Ashland which is particularly amazing during the Shakespeare festival. Not that I’m biased or anything. ;)
