we are an easy going couple who like to travel light and cheap to maximize fun in a new place, and take in as much as possible when we're out on the road. when we're at home, we like to kick back, listen to records, and cook--and while we can sometimes be homebodies, we definitely have our own share of portland adventures. between the two of us, we've lived in 14 Portland area codes spanning 15 plus years, and pride ourselves on being able to direct you towards most anything (or anybody) you might need to find.
come hang out with us and we'll show you the best parts of Portland, and maybe discover some new places together.
