Stefani Stoyanof, the jetsetting jeweler behind Swim to the Moon, doesn't do anything small. She and her husband Marco were splitting their time between Greece and Texas when they decided to take an epic trip - which turned into a 13-month journey around the globe - before the pair settled full-time in Athens. "It's not an easy decision to leave your comforts behind to enter a world of uncertainty, but we found ourselves needing a break from the day-to-day monotony," explains Stefani, who ended the trek with plenty of new ideas for her line and a fresh appreciation for artisans everywhere.

It can be easy to miss how this work has preserved things that make Portland stand out today." We asked Kristen to give us a little rundown of the can't-be-missed scenic spots for outdoor adventure and a little background on the organizations that keep this region looking - and feeling - so good.
