Description : The original, the authentic, the real Portland is in Maine. Settled in 1633 and officially named in 1788, Maine’s largest city is unexpectedly influential in many of key events in America’s history (including Oregon’s city being named after Maine’s Portland on a coin flip), but has managed to remain one of the great American seaport cities on the east coast. First-time visitors are delighted to discover a “lovely city” when expecting to be in a small fishing town, or in discovering “a charming town” when expecting to encounter a overwhelming city. . . but no one ever seems disappointed! Noted as one of the “10 Most Underrated American Cities” by Condé Nast Traveler, then one better as “14 Underrated Places You’ll Really Want To Move To” by BuzzFeed, the eclectic mix of cosmopolitan city, working waterfront, creative economy, and historical and cultural center appeals to the millions that flock here. With a population of 66,000, what makes the city so surprising to so many is the amount of restaurants, theatres, museums, galleries, and performing arts available–rivaling cities more than ten times its size. But while Portland continues to top national accolades and top lists, how much of the city is still unappreciated or unknown? 100 Things to Do in Portland, Maine Before You Die is life beyond the guidebooks–the real Portland literally and otherwise. It’s a glimpse to the amazing events, food, activities, and secrets of which many locals have not even done, or may not be aware. Cities may be visited and experienced, but the goal is to live in it. And, really, you need to live before you Die…at least 100 times.

Although both Lou’s father, Bernard, and her sister, Treena, work, neither makes enough money to help the family make ends meet without Lou’s income. For this reason, it is decided that Lou should apply for a new job at the Job Centre as soon as possible. The next day Lou goes to the gym to see her boyfriend, Patrick. He sees Lou’s lost job as an opportunity for her to improve herself and find something better. The counselor at the Job Centre suggests Lou apply as a care assistant for a man in a wheelchair. She is not interested in this job, but she is running out of options. She agrees to go for the interview. Chapter 2 Lou usually wears odd, eccentric clothes. For the job interview, Josie, her mother, insists she wear a business suit. Lou goes to Granta House, an elegant and expensive home next to the local tourist attraction, Stortfold Castle. She is interviewed by Camilla Traynor. Camilla is Will Traynor’s mother. Will became a quadriplegic after being hit by a motorcycle. He already has a nurse named Nathan to take care of his personal and medical needs.

Therefore, she is surprised when Camilla offers her the job with a six-month contract and generous pay. Chapter 3 Lou reports for work at Granta House the following morning.
