Madrid: Cheap Flights and Layovers

Madrid: Cheap Flights and Layovers

Some adventures are worth the long layovers. And some long layovers are totally worth the adventure.   To get where we’re going with this blog I need to take you a couple steps back in time… This is Jeannine – aka J-Money (J$) 6 years ago – back in the Summer of 2012 – we met on a bus in Bosnia, and hit it off (Someday I’ll write out the full story for y’all, because we love our Travel BFF…

2018: A Year for Adventure

2018: A Year for Adventure

I’ve made no secret to anyone in my life how much I love adventure. I love exploring, seeing new things, and getting to know new people and places. Beyond that, I love photographing all of it! 2017 was fraught with uncertainty and illness and being stuck inside for far too long. I did get some adventure in, don’t get me wrong. Scotland was amazing. Hiking new places and old places was amazing. Meeting new people and exploring with them was…

You guys! It’s Fall! And it’s ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL OUTSIDE!! While Spring is still my favorite season, I love the changing colors of fall. I love that it gets a little cooler outside. I love that football is back. Fall has a lot going for it. I had the opportunity this week to take out the family of a co-worker I adore and get some lovely family photos with the gorgeous fall colors. She introduced me to Sunset Blvd in Sherwood…

Cheers to Wine Tasting

Cheers to Wine Tasting

It would be a big surprise to most everyone who knows me to find out I’d never been wine tasting in Oregon before. I know. I know! But I’ve only been drinking wine for a few years. I started during my summer in Europe, and it was easier than I expected it to be. Wine is everywhere in Europe. In some places it was cheaper than water (Hey-oh, Spain!). I started with strawberry wine and graduated quickly to the heavier…

Mt. Hood Adventure Loop

Mt. Hood Adventure Loop

I talk to a lot of people about adventuring. Since I take a lot of pictures and am out in nature as frequently as I can manage (and I make friends/talk to people wherever I go), I have some “go-to” adventure days that I recommend to people. This Mt. Hood Loop day is one of them. It’s a great option for people who are new to town or visiting as it provides multiple views of one of our greatest treasures:…

Sunrise at Mt. St. Helens

Sunrise at Mt. St. Helens

There are few things I like more than sunrise. I love being the first person on a trail in the morning. I love the quiet. I love ushering in the new day with the sun. And I love the colors dawn brings. Many of my adventures begin early in the morning, and sometimes I’m just crazy enough to wake up at 2:30am, drive more than 2 hours, and watch the sunrise over the mountains. A couple weeks ago, I did…
