Splash Because You Can

Without Rain There Would Be No Puddles


If you live in Portland, you better like H20.

I surf. I fish. I snowboard.

Maybe one day my boys will want to ride a wave, carve down a mountain, and stand in a river with me.

For now, they’re content making a splash.

Ryan Chin is the author of Without Rain There Can Be No Rainbows, a multimedia memoir about his teaching experience in New Zealand. He likes to call it a pet and teacher memoir sandwiched into an overseas adventure. The book is available at Amazon, B&N, iTunes, and in Portland at Powell’s Books. He considers sitting in the car for an extra five minutes by himself a legit vacation. He has mastered the 1 hour spring-break and is a 24 hour road trip Jedi.
