    Missing Portland

    I lived in Portland for 7 years.  I thought I hated it.  I really hated my job.  I think about going back all the time, but I don't know if I could find a job unless I go back to the same wretched company I used to work for.

    I used to live in Portland,

    it's my favorite city ever. You know how people say, "I left my heart in San Francisco" ? Well, I live in San Francisco and that isn't applicable, for me. I left my heart in Portland. From the way the river looks on a gloomy morning, to the smell of rain and wet soil.. Sauvie's...

    I move to Tualatin, OR

    which is right near Portland in 10 days! I have some friends who live there and they love it! I have never been there myself but all the research I have done made me fall in love! Any advice or personal experiences that would help?

    A One Time Encounter With Portland Made A Huge Impression On Me

    About five years ago, I helped my friend move from the Midwest to Portland for a new job.  It was an adventure and I was more than happy to help, and when we arrived in Portland, it instantly made an impression.   It was sooooo green and beautiful and so different that this...

    Recent Visit

    I recently visited Portland Oregon to hang out with my best friend for four days. I really enjoyed her company, and the city that she lives in. Portland wasn't nearly as conservative as the town I grew up in. It felt country, until you got down town. I really loved it there, and...

    Wonderful City, But Not For All. . .

    This was my feeling 5 years ago.  Portland is an amazing city.  I moved here from Northern California (SF Bay Area) with my then boyfriend and 14 y/o daughter.  Perfect place to raise a kid and lots of "couple things" to do.  Outdoor concerts...
