So for those of you who don’t already know, I love to read! Fortunately/unfortunately depending on who you ask, I got hooked on Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Saga. Not just the movies either. I read all of the books before there were movies. The last 3 books I read in under 2 weeks. I was reading at home, on my breaks at work, after work. My girlfriends started out borrowing my books and I believe they now all own their own set. The entire collection is a permanent fixture in my library.
In addition to loving the books, the movies are fabulous also… you have to enjoy them for their cheese factor. And please do not see the movies first and write off the books all together… that would be a poor choice in my opinion. If you have seen the movies. You are in for a treat. Living in the Northwest, where this story takes place, some of the movie set locations are within driving distance (a couple of hours). Visiting Portland this weekend was also a great opportunity to visit a few locations. See if you can tell what part of the movie we are in…..
The Cullen House (Portland, OR)
The Carver Cafe (Damascus, OR)
YAY Kalama High! (Kalama, WA)
So there you go… I’m a dork. I have read the books, watched the movies and visited a few of the “local-ish” movie sites. If you live in the area and want to visit some of these popular Twilight destinations as well, this is the most informative website I have found… Dark Destinations T for Twilight then scroll down and you can click on any of the exciting movie locations. They also have 1 to 3 day personal tours out there for about 250 dollars without food and board! lol That my friends, is overboard.
