A Few Cool Cities

Timm and I are not city people as we both much prefer nature and solitude. However, there are a few cities we’ll visit along our route, such as Hollywood, Seattle and San Francisco. One city on the route I’m looking forward to visiting is Portland because this is where Marylhurst, my MBA school is located. Portland is also where Jay lives, my good friend from our MBA program. We’re looking forward to meeting him and going hiking with him and his wife.

In this section of the blog, we’ll write about our experiences in the cities. In addition, we may end up living out west so as we journey, we’ll check out different places as possible future home locations.
