About Me

I’m Brianne, an Idaho transplant currently living in Portland, Oregon. Everyday Runaway is a travel, wine and lifestyle blog for ordinary people who maintain a job, family or other commitments, but still enjoy escaping the monotony of everyday life through travel and quality experiences. I started this blog as a creative outlet on which to share my adventures, misadventures, musings and more (and what better way to share my private thoughts than to broadcast them on the Internet). I share travel tips / guides, wine / vineyard reviews, and document my adventures in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.


About this Blog:
I use my spare time (and money) to collect experiences, rather than things. Therefore this blog was created as a way for me to document those experiences, and share what I’ve learned along the way. For me, half the fun of the travel process is researching and planning. Between working in the travel industry, and planning my own vacation itineraries, I’ve accumulated a good amount of travel and destination knowledge. So I’d like to use this blog to organize my thoughts, research, reviews and photos in way that may be helpful – and hopefully supply some value – to anyone reading.

I named my blog Everyday Runaway because I don’t believe you need to quit your job, sell your belongings and live out of a backpack to “runaway” from the mundane, weekly grind of everyday life. Don’t get me wrong, I envy those who have the capability and confidence to take that leap – however, for most of us, that’s not a sustainable lifestyle. So this site caters to the everyday Joe’s and Jane’s who want to make the most of what they have – be it weeks or simply weekends.

Some random facts about me:

  • I love drinking good wine (or any wine, really)
  • My rescue cat, Bambi
  • Riding Horses
  • The Ocean
  • Reading (which led to writing)
riding horses on the beach in Oregon
… and sometimes I literally “runaway.”
