One of the things I loved about my time in the US is how with hardly any planning on my behalf I kept having amazing experiences, in places I’d never known existed and with incredible people to top it all off. All I had to do it seemed, was to respect ‘the flow’ and just go with the opportunities that came my way. This was … Continue reading The Pacific North West
After our second night of debauchery in Denver the band broke up, with Mark taking a flight back to Minneapolis for a fund-raising event. After over a week of traveling together it was sad news, however he invited me out to Minneapolis for a camping trip the following weekend and I decided that I would fly out to Seattle from there as well. Nate, Pat … Continue reading The Band Breaks Up
After a few days of nothing but drinking and eating to excess on buffet’s and giant burgers, we all needed to get a bit of exercise and fresh air, and what better place to get it than the rocky mountains?

Check out … Continue reading The Road to Denver and ‘Utah Girl’

Following the events at Ocean Beach the night before, the drive to Vegas can best be summed up in the term ‘hilariously hung over’. Nate, presumably sad on the inside as Natalie was not coming to Vegas drove while the rest of us recovered and joked around, taking in the change of scenery from beach town to arid desert. As dry as the landscape in … Continue reading Vegas Baby!
I had never really considered going to San Diego. To be honest, I had no idea where I was going to go after LA, except eventually end up in Seattle three weeks after I landed. However, when Megan tried to sell me the idea it took little more than pointing out how great the Mexican food will be for me to jump on board. And … Continue reading The West Coast Bender Begins: San Diego
