I'm a Spanish teacher here in Portland, OR and have been exploring this fine city for the last 5 years. I love my neighborhood and all the amazing things that Portland has to offer (especially in the summer and fall) so I'm always excited when people come explore this place. Originally from Romania, I've traveled and continue to travel the world with friends and family. Life feels so short with the millions of sights and songs and smiles out there to experience.
I love taking photos, cooking for friends and coming up with creative little projects (of which I actually finish maaaaybe 20%). I once decorated my fridge like a crystal palace with rabbit-fur lined egg bowl and 24k gilded goose eggs, etc.... one of my AirBnB guests took a photo of some of the items, photoshopped her face into the egg bowl and printed it out it for me. BEST THANK YOU NOTE EVER! No pressure :)
While I probably won't be in town during your stay, I'm happy to share recommendations for my favorite dining, wining, hiking, music, dancing, celebrating, picnicking spots (you name it). My typewriter will be ready to go with paper for you to leave me your own recommendations, a poem, a story, whatever made your visit special.
