We are a couple of recently married late 20-somethings living in Portland, OR. I am a recent graduate from Portland State University (with an Anthropology major and a film minor, oddly enough) and I am currently floating around, enjoying my lack of responsibilities while I try to figure out my next step. My husband, Gabe, is a musician and aspiring film composer with a solo indie-pop project.

We can both be quite the homebodies but enjoy a good adventure. In August 2011, we went on our first trip together: we bought a car and took a month long cross country roadtrip. The following August we tackled a very small portion of Europe (Paris, Venice, Tuscany, and Rome) using Airbnb for the first time and for all of our destinations - we had very pleasant experiences at each stop and were immediate converts! The next August (I think we are seeing a trend here!), we took another cross country road trip, this time for 6 weeks, scouting out places we may eventually like to live. Again, Airbnb proved to be such a wonderful resource for us. We also got engaged while in one of our favorite cities, New Orleans! :D As for our most recent August adventure, we got married!

While traveling, we enjoy a mix of seeing the sights and taking it easy. Sometimes we'll go out all day and wander the city, take tours, what-have-you, and other times we might need to stay in and enjoy some relaxation time. We've been known to be quiet and keep to ourselves but we also really love to get to know our hosts if they want to sit down and chat or even come out and about with us. We try our best to just go with the flow.

In our spare time we watch a ton of movies and have been known to binge watch shows on Netflix. We also try to read fairly often. Gabe prefers to read non-fiction (philosophy, religion, and neuroscience are hot topics for him), while I'm more of a fiction gal with no particular genre preference. We also both enjoy the occasional comic book and playing video games. We're just a couple o' dorks, really! Our favorite thing to do though, is to travel...and eat fabulous food along the way! :D
