Owen Baxter’s Adventure in Portland: From Rugby Fields to Red Barns

After introducing Owen Baxter, our beloved rugby star, we’re excited to share his recent journey from the bustling rugby fields of England to the serene landscapes of Portland, Oregon. Join us as we explore his experiences and adventures in this vibrant city.

Owen’s trip began with a luxurious twist as he boarded a private jet for the first time. Flying from London to Portland, he was treated to an experience unlike any other. The comfort and exclusive services on board were impressive, but true to his humble nature, Owen appreciated the experience without becoming enamored by it. While the private jet offered unparalleled luxury, Owen’s grounded personality shone through. He enjoyed sharing the details with friends and family, eager to recount the comfort and gourmet meals prepared by a Michelin chef.

Upon arriving in Portland, Owen was ready to dive into the local culture. Portland, known for its eclectic vibe and stunning natural beauty, welcomed him with open arms. Our first stop was a picturesque farm with a classic red barn.

The Red Barn Tradition:

Owen learned that red barns are a staple of American farm culture. Historically, barns were painted red because farmers used linseed oil and rust, which were inexpensive and readily available. The red color also helped barns stand out in the vast rural landscapes, making them easier to locate. Owen embraced the role of a farmer, dressing in jeans overalls and a straw hat, and took some charming photos with local cats and vintage trucks filled with flowers.

Biking Through the Gorge:

Next, Owen explored the scenic beauty of the Columbia River Gorge. Biking along the trails, he was captivated by the sight of Mt. Hood towering in the background. The Columbia River Gorge is renowned for its breathtaking vistas and lush, green trails, making it a perfect spot for an outdoor enthusiast like Owen. The experience offered a refreshing contrast to his rigorous rugby training sessions, providing both relaxation and inspiration.

Owen’s trip to Portland was a delightful mix of luxury and local charm. His adventures ranged from experiencing high-end travel to embracing the simplicity and beauty of farm life and outdoor activities.

As Owen wraps up his Portland adventure, he’s about to embark on a new journey to the majestic Rockies. What will he discover in Lumberlandia with its local lumberjacks and classic American BBQs? Stay tuned for the next post to find out!
