My boyfriend and I live in Portland, where I was also born and raised. He is also a native Oregonian, hailing from Ashland. We are both avid travelers, but the Pacific Northwest is where my heart is! We have a small, beautiful home that feels a bit like a cross between a beach house and an enormous tree house. We love our place and enjoy sharing it.
We appreciate guests that make themselves at home, clean up after themselves, and generally treat our home with respect. I work full-time, so I don't have much free time on the weekdays to hang out and show you around. This doesn't mean you aren't welcome, just that you will have to be an independent traveler looking for a comfortable and welcoming "home base." (I am full of recommendations and suggestions, though!) If you arrive on the weekend or in the evening, I might be able to pick you up, but public transportation from the bus and train station to my house is very easy.
Duncan is currently in school, so quite common areas may be needed for studying.
