We left Colorado on Tuesday afternoon and drove until we were about an hour away from the Four Corners Monument. We slept in the hotel for the night since we knew we’d be camping for the next few days without being able to use a shower. There are no showers at most primitive camping sites in case you were wondering. We woke up super early and flew into the Four Corners Monument right as it opened at 8 a.m. We walked around for a few minutes and headed back to the car. Continue reading “USA Road Trip: Part 2”
We’ve been on the road for 13 days at this point. In so many ways it feels like it been shorter or longer than that. My sister and I didn’t really set out with a clear goal for this trip except for visiting a few friends along the way. Continue reading “USA Road Trip: Part 1”
At the end of May a few friends and I flee from Connecticut to Denver, where we met up with two other friends flying in from Boston. It was a friend reunion of 5 years! I’m sure everyone else has seen each other during the 4 years I was gone, but I haven’t seen some of these individuals in about 5 years, so it was really exciting. Continue reading “Colorado Reunion”
In late April my youngest sister, Jackie, asked me if I would be interested in accompanying her on a road trip around the USA. I said sure, why not?! We had to push it back since I am going with friends to Colorado the week before to hang out and visit a good friend who lives out there that I haven’t seen in 5 years. Continue reading “Beginning Stages of Our USA Road Trip”
About a few months before I decided that I was going to move back to the states after my last contract in South Korea, my mom and I talked about meeting up somewhere. I told her I refused to fly back to the states for my vacation, as it seemed like a waste to me. I countered with Bali, but the flight was too long for my parents, so we settled on Hawaii. It was smack dab in the middle of the ocean between us and my mom and I have never been! Also, if it weren’t for my lovely parents, I wouldn’t have been able to afford it either! We were together for about 9 days and we spent 5 days on Kauai, and 4 on Oahu. Continue reading “Hawaii Getaway”
My mom turned 50 in September last year and I really wanted to surprise her. I asked my school in May if it would be okay for me to take an extra day off in October to go home and surprise my mother for her birthday. Originally, I hadn’t planned to do it, but I decided to check flight prices and direct was so cheap I decided fuck it, I’m gonna try. Granted my lovely credit card is what enabled me to be able to book the tickets, but I also received official approval from my school.
The last 10 days are like a blur to me. Which that in and of itself should tell me that the next time I go on vacation, I should take it easy. I traveled back home to Connecticut with my best friend from England, her boyfriend, and his old coworker. It was an interesting experience to be a tour guide for four and I can’t say that I will do that again. Live and learn as they say.
My doggy, Puddin. Continue reading “A Whirlwind Vacation”
