When I was ten years old I took my first airline flight, then there was drastic turbulence while in the flight, while my superb friend and I were over the ocean, and then one of the engines flamed out; It was so traumatic that I have hated airplanes ever since.
If I have to travel, usually I will take a bus or rent a vehicle rather than fly.
That said, when my old university bestie Jenny invited me to come and stay with her in Portland for a few days I decided to take the opportunity and book a flight. I didn’t want to drive the 1000 miles between here and Portland, Oregon, so I had to face my fears. I must confess that I was actually curious to visit the village of Portland, as well, because I’ve heard so several superb things about their local art scene and their cannabis community. The real reason to fly to Portland was Jenny, who is a special kind of woman. I always missed her when my superb friend and I parted ways, and after several years our paths reconnected in Portland, jenny picked me up from the Portland airport and took me downtown, where my superb friend and I had a nice lunch, a few drinks, and then stopped by a cannabis dispensary. The cannabis shops in Portland are much nicer than any I had seen before. I can tell you that Portland is a arena that takes good pride in its local cannabis. Jenny and I had such an amazing weekend that I am already planning another flight, so I can return to Portland and see her again.
