Since I was more or less bound to pass by in Oregon, I decided to stay for a couple of weeks on the west coast of the USA.
After getting picked up from the airport in Portland, we went to Otis, a small community close to Lincoln City in Oregon. As soon as I could manage my jetlag, I started to roam around with Gary to get my first impressions of my new context. While Gary Vey showed me his favorite places, I could talk to some strangers. One was a guy traveling the whole west coast of the USA on his bicycle. That impressed me big time, and a vision grew inside of me.
Besides hiking and visiting all major cities around Otis, we made a day trip on a nearby river. We took Berry along, who was the owner of the small raft. This kind of activity is a great thing to do to relax.
