Laura and Chris stayed at my Airbnb for six days after Christmas. Chris was an attorney in Alaska until he got tired of it. He bought a boat in Portugal, and met Laura who’s from Belgium. They got married. A true love and a boat in one trip to Portugal. Interesting things happen when you jump off the merry-go-round.
They’ve been traveling the seven seas—or some of them anyway. They left the boat moored in Panama for the winter and flew to Centralia to look at a piece of land they might buy and live on. A far cry from sailing the world you might say, but this is a pretty sweet place to live.
It’s also a beautiful place to visit. You can find me here if you are coming to this great little corner of the country.
