It’s been two and a half years since moving to Seattle and we still only feel like we’ve experienced a fraction of what the PNW has to offer. One place we love visiting is Portland. I’m a huge fan of Lebron James so for my birthday Marissa got me tickets to see him and the Cleveland Cavaliers in Portland. My very first NBA game! That’s crazy to me. Growing up around sports and playing everything under the sun, I still haven’t been to an NBA game.
We called this the efficiency trip. We took the Amtrack down (which we highly recommend) dropped our stuff off at the hotel, ate dinner, went to the game, fell asleep and caught the first train back to Seattle in the morning. Portland is such a unique and beautiful city, the people are super friendly, the food is amazing, and they truly love their Trailblazers.
Hopefully we don’t wait another 30 years to see another. (Marissa says I’d be easier if they brought the Sonics back.) Thanks Rip City. ~Erik & Marissa
