I guess I’d have to talk about Instagram… and Zach… and how amazing he is… and all that mess. But hell, I will bore everyone with that story later. (Promise.) So moving around that big ol’ bottomless pit of a conversation…
Let’s just talk about what is happening currently, and about the two random mini-vacation/stay-cations I’ve been on since the beginning of March.
I up and decided to go to Portland one day. Cause, well Portland is awesome, and I haven’t been on a damn vacation in over 4 years. I finally work a job where I can take some type of time off without freaking out about losing the ability to pay my rent on time. It’s a new feeling and it’s pretty amazing honestly. So when I got my cushy tax return back this year, I decided to treat myself to an adventure. I had a place to stay, and a tour guide for the weekend… and I ended up having the most amazing four day vacation of a life time. I know that the trip changed my life, and made my life start moving in a brand new direction, which is amazing, since I was starting to feel pretty stagnant.
Portland is nothing like you think it is.
It’s also not like asheville. I think visually they are similar, but it’s not like they are sister cities or anything. I felt amazingly comfortable there, but that may have been slightly to blame on the amazing company I held all weekend, and it was a really awesome trip.
The food scene in Portland is just stunning. If I didn’t mind the rain and the cold I would be packing up my forks and moving on over there just to experience all the amazing food culture that there is in Portland.
Hawaiian food? seriously? yes. thank you. put it in my mouth.
Portland is awesome, but I informed my new mate Zach that Asheville is also pretty damn nifty. We have amazing food, and waterfalls, and great beer… also the weather doesn’t suck. So he decided to up and come here too. Kind of like switching cities for the summer, but really we were just trading off showing off our towns.
I’ve talked at length about how much I adore Asheville, and really this story is so much better expressed in photos, especially since my brain does not work right now… So, let’s do that instead.
All in all, these two short trips have solidified my ideas and path in life. It involves amazing people, and most importantly one very amazing man.
And that my friends, is simply the beginning of a fairy tale… the rest of the chapters are soon to come, and they are also wonderful. Stay tuned.
