Sorry I’ve been away so long. Yikes. Finally made it home and have been relaxing the last couple days. Soaking in the sun, getting sunburned, jumping in the warm water, catching a few waves.. oh you know. Pretty much doing absolutely nothing and feeling quite guilty about it. Hawaii has sucked me back in as its child and now I gotta battle island life with a little productivity!!
Oregon seems like ages ago. I cannot believe a couple days ago I was chipping frost off the car windows and wearing 6 layers of clothing just to keep warm. I had such an amazing time with my family over the holidays and spending a couple days in Portland with my good friend. OH, and I have got the pounds to prove it. Oh my. Traveling, road tripping, and life on the road is a tricky thing without a restrictive diet. 600+ calorie donuts, snack foods on long drives, trying new places [because you have to eat at the best places when you're in a foodie town], and no exercise besides an occasional hike or stroll through town. It has taken its toll. Hellooo extreme squats and power yoga. Gahhhh.. but no one really cares about that!? The trip was amazing and it’s hard to believe it has finally come to an end. I couldn’t have asked to end it any other way then with family and close friends.
I think I might put together a little On the Road Guide to America and give little tips, cost factors, places to stay, must see’s, and all that fun stuff soon. From my perspective.. just for fun. Why not? We’ll see. For now I have to go sooth my sunburn with some lotion and get a couple of squats in before bed. hahhh.
The Pacific North West.. until next time.
