I am the wife of the same husband for almost 4 decades, mother to a daughter and a son and a grandma. I was born and raised in Oregon, until we moved our family to a small town in southern Illinois. After 7 1/2 years we moved back to Oregon. As empty-nesters, my husband and I moved to Sacramento, California where I worked as a Tour Planner/Manager/Tour Guide.
In 2014 we started planning a grand adventure. We quit our jobs, rented out our home, sold most of our stuff, storing ten boxes of photos, taxes and keepsakes and started out on a journey in early 2015 to slowly travel the world. After 14 months traveling through 20 countries we found Chiang Mai, Thailand was a place where we wanted to have an extended stay and were making plans when we were invited to come “home” for Thanksgiving 2016 because a grandchild would be born!
We are thrilled be a grandparents and are presently living “normal” lives in Portland in order to be close to our growing family. As a local tour guide I love showing off my corner of the world to visitors, but planning future travel is always on my mind.
I invite you to Meet Me in the Morning either in Portland or Further Abroad for all things travel.
