We are a couple of mid-20 somethings living in downtown Portland, OR. I am an anthropology major (with a film minor, oddly enough) at Portland State University (trying to decide on my focus and where to attend grad school!) while my fiance, Gabe, is a musician and aspiring film composer who recently graduated with a BA in English (from Portland State!)
We can both be quite the homebodies but enjoy a good adventure. Two summers ago we bought a car and took a month long cross country roadtrip. We slept in the car, at hotels and crashed on the couches of family members along the way.
Last summer we tackled a very small portion of Europe (Paris, Venice, Tuscany, and Rome) using Airbnb for all of our destinations - we had very pleasant experiences at each stop! This last summer (2013), we took another cross country road trip, this time for 6 weeks, scouting out places we may eventually like to live. Again we used Airbnb several times, which was just such a wonderful resource for us! We also got engaged while in New Orleans! :D
In our spare time we like to watch movies of all genres, whether while cuddling up at home or at the theater. We watch A LOT of movies. We also try to read fairly often. Gabe prefers to read non-fiction (philosophy & neuroscience are hot topics for him), science fiction and satire while I'll read just about any book that has been recommended to me and/or sounds interesting - I tend to stick to fiction and catching up on the classics I've never read. I also enjoy comics, but mostly Batman, and we both enjoy playing video games - but not too much! We're just a couple o' dorks! Our favorite thing to do though, is to travel...and eat fabulous food along the way! :D
