During March of last year, Rachel and I took a mini road trip from Maine to Michigan and back. We were gone for 9 days and traveled through 8 different states. We had such an amazing time, as we always do together. Rachel and I always manage to turn any situation into an adventure filled with tons of laughs, creativity, and genuine connection. I can’t believe that this trip was already a year and a half ago. However, as I never got around to blogging about it, I figured now was as good a time as any ;).
For this trip we chose the states that we wanted to visit, but left everything else up to whatever we felt like doing in that moment. So for our first stop we found a beautiful field in Pennsylvania which had this awesome old-fashioned little building, wide open spaces, giant trees, and people riding by on their horses as I happened to be half-naked taking self portraits xD. But I figured I’d never see any of them again, so, who cares? Sadly none of those photos are going to be included in this post, you’ll have to head over to my Flickr to find those whenever I post them =).
We tried to keep our stays in hotels to a minimum to save ourselves money, so we couch surfed and stayed with friends along the way for the most part. However whenever we did stay in a hotel we were incredibly grateful to have our own beds, privacy, and no social-interaction requirements. As we’re both quite introverted individuals, we often just wanted to sit in bed on our laptops, rather than entertaining other people ;). One of the many reasons I love Rachel so much; we just get each other without much effort.
Part II of our road trip diaries will be posted soon =).
