The Portland Bucket List

It might not be obvious to everyone, but the city that Edwin and I are co-inhabiting in is Portland, Oregon.We are both originally from a smaller town about an hour south, Salem, Oregon. We were officially moved into our apartment in June of 2012 (I really moved in late May because of work).

The hilarious part of the whole Portland living adventure is how little of Portland we have experienced for how long we've lived only an hour away.

Since moving, we have created a Portland Bucket List. A list of all of the things we want to do while we live here, things we have to get to and experience because they are just too cool not to. We've included the things we've already accomplished, because it makes us feel good. We also reserve the right to add to and edit this list at any given time.

Here's the list!

It also includes lots of hiking.

Which means I need hiking boots sometime soon.

I'm also not a hiker.

Adaptability is key.
