FULL ON OREGON . . . IT WAS SO MUCH MORE

Post image for FULL ON OREGON . . . IT WAS SO MUCH MORE

by Debra

It’s been a little more than a week since The Professor and I returned from a 3-day trip to Oregon; while I attended ‘Full On Oregon’ hosted by Travel Oregon, The Professor had his own solo ‘full-on’ experience getting to know the city. To say that it was spectacular is an understatement . . . I kid you not . . . it was one of the best trips I’ve experienced in three short days. In fact, I’ll be sharing my thoughts about some of the women I met in a future post later this week . . . stay tuned, you’re in for a real treat . . .

I had intended to list all of the incredibly talented artisans who participated in this weekend . . . and then realized that this would be more than 50!! If you happen to be traveling to Oregon and want info on some of the places we visited, I’d be happy to share that information with you – just ask! Or you can contact Travel Oregon directly and they’d be more than happy to help.

FULL DISCLOSURE HERE: While Travel Oregon paid for and sponsored Full On Oregon, I am not being compensated for this post, nor was I asked to provide any type of review; the opinions expressed here are strictly mine.

loved hearing ur voice, Debra! 😉 😉 The inflection is just wonderful and so genuine. I feel like I really got to see Oregon for a few minutes. You’ve sold it as a place that any American must visit. Great work.

I am so pleased that Travel Oregon invited you and that you accepted. We Oregonians are so passionate and protective of what living here means—and you not only “got” it but you expressed it so eloquently in words and in images. A thousand thanks. Hurry back.

Got so excited, I commented before it was even over and accidentally re-started the video. But I know it;s good, because I did’t fast forward because I wanted to see what I had already seen again. 🙂
