I am a Portland, Oregon native. I love traveling the world, having adventures, volunteering and meeting locals. On my most recent trip I traveled around the world, literally, on a Dutch tall ship. We sailed 10,000 nautical miles to some amazing places including Antarctica, Tristan da Cunha island and Portugal. My favorite Airbnb experience was on Pico island where I was hosted by a lovely French couple who cooked some amazing meals using food from their garden.
