About Us

Hello world and fellow travel enthusiasts! Welcome to the interweb home of The Wandering Dragons.  We are married, travel-loving birds of a feather – Micah and Moani. We currently reside in the greater Portland metro area in beautiful Oregon.  Moani was born and raised on a distant spec in the Pacific Ocean known as Maui, while Micah was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Together, we have two rambunctious pups and one spoiled, lazy cat.

We created this space to share our love of traveling to new and amazing places, eating the most delicious foods, and taking in a good drink or two.  Though one of us is a carnivore, and the other is a happy herbivore (sometimes pescatarian), together, we find compromise in the food adventures we share.  Our main intention, really, is to help to inspire others to set out on their own travel adventures and see the world in all its splendor.  Each moment we have on this earth is so precious.  We encourage you to make the most of it!

If you’re interested in working with or contacting us, visit our Contact Us page for more info.

Thanks for following us on our adventures!

Safe Travels!

xx Micah and Moani xx

    Thanks for checking put our post; As usual, we always come across people we’d love top be friends with in our area right before leaving. Where do u guys live? We just sold our Walnut Creek house. Anyway, since it’s too late to become good friends in person we’d love to follow your blog and keep in touch with some cool Bay Area people in case we get homesick after leaving. Well, this isn’t really home but I’ve been here for 27 years. We hope you follow us also
