The Road Trip Continues: San Francisco

The road trip continues from Napa to San Francisco.  Sarah had to fly home for a few days, so this one was all me.  I didn’t really mind, I like traveling solo and that gave me more time to catch up with my friend Alan, one of the friends that I was originally traveling in […]

Napa, CA: Welcome to Wine Country

After recovering from our 3 week sleep deficit in Portland, we embarked on out ten hour drive to wine country – Napa, California.  Ever since our visit in Napa, I feel like my senses are heightened.  My sense of smell is stronger.  I keep getting whiffs of random things and can pick out exactly what […]

Chicago: Reunited and It Feel So Good!!

Day One: After almost 10 hours of driving, we arrived in Chicago from Niagara. We could have gotten there in an hour less time if we drove through Canada, but without our data/ Google Maps working we knew it would turn into an even longer trip. What did we do before gps? Or even Mapquest?! […]

From Boston to NY to Niagara: The Road Trip Begins

After 3 months living the funemployment life in Portland, I flew out to Boston to watch Sarah become a doctor real quick before starting our road trip. Immediately after the hooding ceremony, we grabbed some free food at the reception, escorted Sarah’s directionally challenged mother (sorry Val, it’s true) to her car, and head off […]
