We are Dan and Deb from the Portland, Oregon area. Sometimes we will be traveling with Nate, our 6'6" (!!), 16-year old son, at other times we plan to get away by ourselves. We are both professionals for a large healthcare provider and are also small business owners (photography). We work hard and look forward to our time off!
Living in Oregon, we LOVE the outdoors. Hiking, camping, kayaking, fishing, cycling--we spend as much time outdoors as we can. We love to go into Portland to try new restaurants and bars. During the winter, we tend to stay inside more---Dan works on his photography and I like to read and work on my genealogy research. And, we watch college football! Go Ducks!
We took our dream trip in Summer 2013--Norway, Sweden & Denmark. We fell in love with it and hope to go back someday. We have relatives in both areas, but we are always looking to exchange there. We haven't been many places, so we are ready to start traveling!
We also have an adult son, Justin, who is a new daddy!! Justin and his wife, Erica, may travel with us occasionally, but most of the time it will be the 3 of us.
In case you were wondering, our cover photo was taken up the road from our house.
We are interested in traveling throughout the world, including our own United States. While this is our main home, we have an RV and access to our family home at the Oregon coast, so a non-simultaneous exchange may be possible.
