Our Trip to Nike HQ (Oh, and Portland)

It’s one thing to visit and explore some place new. It’s a whole other experience to visit a place where the person has wanted to go there their whole lives and then ultimately work, live, and retire there. That would be Nike Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon for Cody. I am a big city person. No suburbs for me. The bigger the city, the better. Or so I thought… This city way exceeded my expectations. Yes, it much smaller than SF and NY, but for its size it had so much to offer. GREAT food. The public transportation was the easiest. I could walk to anything. Literally anything. AWESOME shopping. (Hello? Tory Burch and Kate Spade stores.) And the people… the nicest. Portland is quite the little gem.
