My View – May/June 2016

My life is always in some sort of whirlwind it seems, but that’s okay, it keeps me busy doing so many of the things I love.
 
I hope you find this issue entertaining and informative. I know I have enjoyed putting it all together.
 
Back in April I visited Angela Rogers with Cedar Creek Alpacas. What a fun day that was, wandering around inside the alpaca pen and getting to see first hand how wonderful their fleece is. The rain and mud were an easy price to pay for the experience that is for sure.
 
I also attended the Oregon Governor’s Conference on Tourism held at the Wildhorse Resort in Pendleton. It was a great conference, lots of energy, and I met so awesome new friends. If you ever get a chance to go to this conference…go! Travel Oregon puts on a great event. My very favorite TV personality, Samantha Brown of the Travel Channel, was the keynote speaker. Her advice to all of us who have been bitten by the travel bug was to ‘take a walk’, especially while traveling. Get out and see what makes a place special. Take a walk and learn about the people of the area you are visiting. I thought it was great advice.
 
I plan to take my walk on the Camino de Santiago, which is in Spain, and I could not be more excited about it.
 
While I am on my walk I am going to be sure to document my journey on the new fabulous travel site that recently went live online…..jrrny.com. Be sure to read all about Washington Maverick John Kueber and what prompted him to create jrrny. I had a great visit with him and I am excited to see where jrrny takes him…..and me!
 
Another great visit I had lately was with Lars Larson. We don’t always see eye to eye on all of the issues, but I really enjoyed the time spent with him in his Portland studio.
 
Thank you so much for reading my publication, and thank you to those who let me walk into your world for a moment, or two, as I try to sum up your life in 500 words or less. I am truly honored by the friends I meet along the way and hope I can tell your stories for the rest of my life.
 
Until next time…..Carpe diem (Seize the Day) Lori
