  • One of our must stops while we were in Portland was to our friends at Jones Bags. We came across Jones a few years ago after looking to go back to true carry bags, and have been carrying the Original Jones Bag for a few years now. 
Like so many others, Jones Bags brings back fond memories.  My first Jones bag?  My 1982 blue and gold high school golf team bag.  Nothing made me more proud than that bag. Jones meant you made the team.
.
 Over the years, and many Jones bags later, I’m convinced that learning how to carry it backwards took 2 strokes off my game. .

  • HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY
.
For us Valentine’s Day is a day like any other day. When we look around and see all the fuss that is made of it, and all the commerce, we don’t wanna participate in it.
Valentine’s Day was probably an invention of the flower shops 😊
A handmade card or handwritten love letter is way more important to us then flowers and chocolate. You should show respect and love to your partner, family and friends every day, and not on a certain day dictated by others.
This is why we only have this Valentine picture… in a supermarket in front of shelves full with flowers, chocolate and balloons. 
We are spending our Valentine's Day surrounded by our loved ones, without all the fuss, and we know we will think back often and remember happily.
.
How did you celebrate Valentine’s Day?

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY
.
Für uns ist Valentine’s Day eigentlich ein Tag wie jeder andere. Wenn wir uns umschauen und den ganzen Hype und Kommerz sehen, möchten wir uns ungern einreihen.
Valentine’s wurde wahrscheinlich von Blumengeschäften erfunden 😊
Ein handgemachte Karte oder handgeschriebener Liebesbrief ist uns wichtiger als ein Strauß Blumen und Schokolade. Man sollte jeden Tag seinem Partner, Familie und Freunden Respekt und Liebe entgegenbringen und nicht an einem Tag, der einem auf diktiert wird.
Daher ein Valentine-Bild von uns in einem Supermarkt, vor Regalen mit Blumen, Schokolade und Luftballons. Den Valentine’s Day haben wir im Kreise unserer Liebsten verbracht, ganz ohne Firlefanz, an den wir noch oft und gern zurückdenken werden.
Wie habt ihr Valentine's Day verbracht?

  • Just a few days ago we visited a museum, which was high on my list to see. The Evergreen Aviation Museum in #mcminnville !
As I (Menekse) come from a family full with pilots and airplane lovers, that day was one of the highlights of our trip to the US.
We enjoyed it so much, and as we thought it can’t get better, we were allowed to sit in the cockpit of the Spruce Goose!!!!!!!!!!
Well… isn’t that like birthday AND Christmas together?!
.
If you wonder what the Spruce Goose is: here are the first lines of the description from the website from the #evergreenaviationmuseum, which we highly recommend to visit!
.
„The largest wooden airplane ever constructed, and flown only one time, the Spruce Goose represents one of humanity's greatest attempts to conquer the skies. It was born out of a need to move troops and material across the Atlantic Ocean, where in 1942, German submarines were sinking hundreds of Allied ships. Henry Kaiser, steel magnate and shipbuilder, conceived the idea of a massive flying transport and turned to Howard Hughes to design and build it. Hughes took on the task, made even more challenging by the government’s restrictions on materials critical to the war effort, such as steel and aluminum. Six times larger than any aircraft of its time, the Spruce Goose, also known as the Hughes Flying Boat, is made entirely of wood.“

  • PORTLAND…
.
Every time we're in Portland, she captures me.  Even the drive into to the city, you are rewarded with her spectacular views.
This skyline, and there.. Mount Hood.  The beautiful bridges, where I can't stop myself from starring.  There is so much to see and to do here. 
If there's one city I love as if it's my hometown, it's Portland.
A little bit Nuremberg, a little bit more Berlin, with a whole lot of warmth and lots and lots of room for every personality.  A city where you don't get looked at funny when you walk down the street with a smile on you face.
A city where strangers greet strangers.
Portlanders are characters.  Creative, individual, unique, and a penchant for "weirdness"! "This one love will never end. When will I see you again?"
.

PORTLAND…
.
Jedes Mal, wenn wir in Portland sind, nimmt sie mich gefangen. Schon wenn man in die Stadt reinfährt, wird man mit spektakulären Ausblicken belohnt.
Diese Skyline, da hinten Mount Hood, die wunderschönen Brücken, an denen ich mich einfach nicht satt sehen kann. Hier gibt es so viel zu sehen und zu unternehmen. 
Wenn es eine Stadt gibt, die ich unangefochten liebe als wäre es meine Heimatstadt, dann ist es Portland.
Ein bißchen Nürnberg, ein bißchen mehr Berlin, ganz viel Herzlichkeit und viel viel Raum für jede Persönlichkeit. Eine Stadt, in der man nicht schräg angeschaut wird, wenn man gutgelaunt durch die Straßen läuft.
Eine Stadt, in der Fremde Fremde grüßen.
Portlanders sind ein eigener Schlag Mensch. Kreativ, individuell, einzigartig und mit einem Hang zur „Weirdness“. „Diese eine Liebe wird nie zu Ende gehen. Wann werd‘ ich dich wiedersehen?“ @traveloregon / Werbung

  • URBAN GOLF, TOUGH LIES
.
Joining @scottmazariegos and his group of urban golfers was such an unforgettable experience. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed the company very much.
This picture is one of my favorites of James. You don't see graffiti often while hitting a golf ball.  Talk about tough lies!!!
.
Who has ever played Urban Golf??

  • WHAT DID YOU DO TODAY?
.
.
Us? Well, we just played what was probably our most fun round of golf ever! While the great winter storm of 2019 kept most Portlanders inside, we were invited to play Urban Golf, and had an absolute blast with some of the coolest people we've ever met!!
.
We would like to thank @scottmazariegos
and the rest of the group for a great day!!

  • INCLUSIVE GOLF… .
.
…not exclusive golf! Today we visited Chris and Max at the Portland Golf Collective and it was such a blast!
Two young creative minds who love golf and reflect that love in everything they do. These guys show how golf can be. Honest, fun and without any pretentiousness.
With companies like these, we know that the future of golf is in good hands. We wish you guys all the best and great success. Stay the way you are!

  • SUPERBOWL SUNDAY 
Today is one of those days where Americans go absolutely crazy… Superbowl Sunday!!
We are getting ready to watch the big game with our family.
Two days ago the anticipation started. We drove to one of LA’s icons – Randy’s – to get some of their delicious donuts.
As we arrived we saw that Nike had repainted the giant donut in the Ram’s team colors. What a cool idea!
Cars drove by and rolled down their windows to yell „Go Rams!“ which brought the people waiting in line to cheer happily back. It was sure fun to be in the middle of this and watch it all.
And the donuts were excellent as well..
Especially the signature donut, which was made especially for the Rams and Superbowl Sunday.

SUPERBOWL SUNDAY 
Heute ist einer der Tage, an dem die Amis Kopf stehen.. Superbowl Sunday!!
Wir machen uns auf jeden Fall fertig um später mit der Familie den American Football Marathon anzuschauen.
Vor (mindestens) zwei Tagen hat die Vorfreude auf diesen Sonntag bereits angefangen. In LA fuhren wir zu einem der Wahrzeichen LA’s – Randy’s – um uns leckere #donuts zu holen.
Dort angekommen sahen wir, dass #nike den Riesendonut in den #rams Farben gestrichen hat.  #guerillamarketing at its best sag ich da nur!
Autos stoppten um „Go Rams!“ zu schreien, was die wartende Menge zu freudigem Grölen brachte. Es hat sicher Spaß gebracht das Ganze zu beobachten. Und die Donuts waren auch hervorragend…. Besonders der signature donut, der eigens für die Mannschaft und den Superbowl Sunday gemacht wurde.

  • Our two weeks in California are coming to an end. Tonight our alarm will go off at 2.45 a.m. and we will fly back to PDX.
We had two fantastic weeks here, that went by so fast it is unbelievable. 
In San Diego we had time to stroll around and just go with the flow. The people there are so unique, and it is filled with so many individuals all with their own style.
It is a place where you wanna be.
.
And LA: what a cool city. We did as much sightseeing in three days as we could manage because of the traffic.
LA is a city of broken dreams but also where dreams come true.
.
Overall we loved both cities and are very happy to have been able to visit. We will keep California in our memories and hearts forever. .
.
.
Zwei Wochen in Kalifornien sind nun fast vorbei. Heute Nacht wird der Wecker um 2.45 Uhr klingeln und wir fliegen zurück nach #pdx .
Es waren zwei fantastische Wochen, die so schnell vorbei gegangen sind, dass wir es nicht fassen können. 
In San Diego hatten wir Zeit zu bummeln, haben viel gesehen und uns treiben lassen. Die Menschen hier sind so einzigartig, so viele Individualisten mit eigenen Charakteren.
Ein Ort an dem man sein möchte.
.
Und LA: was für eine coole Stadt. In drei Tagen haben wir angeschaut, was wir inklusive Verkehr geschafft haben.
In LA merkt man, dass es eine Stadt ist, in der Träume platzen können. Aber auch in der man es ganz weit nach oben schaffen kann.
.
Summa sumarum war beides toll und wir sind so happy hier gewesen zu sein. Kalifornien wird uns für immer im Gedächtnis und im Herzen bleiben.

Who doesn't love them?! Thank you #california for spoiling us with your sunshine, blue skies and lots and lots of beautiful palm trees.
