In our longest house sit so far we suffered a few mishaps, a murder or two (chicken) and Christmas magic as we fell in love with Portland, its unique style and great food.
We hit Seattle's finest tourist spots, Chihuly's famous glass garden, the Space Needle, EMP museum and Pike's Market in a fun-filled winter weekend.
As winter approaches we cosy up in Eugene for a house sit before hitting the road to explore Oregon's wet and wild coast and the equally soggy Columbia River Gorge.
What didn't we do in California? Two house sits, attended a wedding, first college football game, ate Ethiopian in San Fran, supped Napa wines, and got a tattoo!
Join us on the final leg of our big US road-trip, hiking the breath-taking north rim in Grand Canyon NP and getting soaked on the Glacier Point trail in Yosemite NP
