So, I’m going to Portland, OR for five weeks starting on Tuesday. It’s a working vacation/writer’s retreat, as I’m finishing a draft of my novel. I’m also hoping the change of pace & scenery will help ease some of this heartache.
1) I’m staying with friends and house-sitting, but I’m also keeping my eyes peeled for more house & pet-sitting gigs, so I don’t stress out the very generous friend who I’m staying with the longest. If any of you know of any Pdx house-sits or pet-sits from about July 25th-August 16th, please do let me know.
2) What are some fun & relaxing things to do in Portland?! I go to a lot of readings and performances for fun, and I’m a fan of concerts and shows and good dance parties. I love a good cafe where I can sit and write for hours. I love long pretty walks and bike rides.
3) Portland perverts, does Pdx have much of a queer kink scene? Are there play parties &/or other pervert functions I should know about?
