Tag Archives: Road Trip

I am so backed up on blogging that it really isn’t funny, but oh well, I really have nothing to complain about. Its been a hectic couple of weeks, but a really good couple of weeks. I probably won’t be able to backlog much due to the massive upcoming trip I am going on, but maybe a couple here and there should do.  The picture above is from our second hotel on our road trip up from San Francisco. It actually made really really good waffles. Me Like.

I’m thinking I might not post all the road trip pictures since I am lacking on time. That means no embarrassing road trip pictures like this one:

What is Katherine doing in the picture? Who knows.

Its official. Road trips with good friends is one of the greatest things ever. Also, before you get your panties in a bunch, the driver never EVER drank while driving. Also, the minorities were never allowed behind the wheel, which did not bother me at all.

This was one of the stops on our road trip from San Francisco to Seattle. It is absolutely stunning. STUNNING. Lots of other words can describe it, but I will just use that one. We woke up a bit hungover/cranky in the morning and after probably the most awkward breakfast of all time with the most awkward waitress ever, we headed up to the viewpoint.

Me: Isn’t it JUNE?!

Couldn’t help but notice that the snow on the road towered over our car. I almost cried.

Also, this was the first time I ever stayed in an A team or whatever they are called cabin. They are crazy! And awesome.

Here we go. Once again we have another year zooming by, but unlike other years, when I look back at this one I think “HOLY F*CKING SH*T!!!!” To me, it seems like so many people around me are more than ready to say goodbye to the year 2009. I can truly honestly say that I don’t share that sentiment in the slightest. It is hard to explain why without making me sound like I am boasting, but I am going to do it anyway.

This time.
I’ll have no fear.
I’ll be standing strong and tall.

I rang the New Year with some great friends
Another Group Pic

I backpacked Southeast Asia

I still can’t believe the awesomeness that was this trip. I started the trip with two amazing friends and ended up with even more wonderful friends. From the 14 hours bus rides, the two day boat journey down the Mekong, the sickness, the craziness that is Bangkok, floating the Viang Vieng river, crashing a motorcycle in Laos, eating amazing food in Vietnam, meeting the most wonderful people in Cambodia, exploring the ruins of Angkor Wat and relaxing on the beautiful islands of Thailand. So. Incredibly. Amazing.

I spent a month in Africa
1 - Table Mountain Victory
Spending time with one of my best friends Tfaith, meeting and becoming secret lovers with his future wife, conquering Table Mountain, camping the Garden Route with a backpack and a blanket, conquering pickpockets and scary alleyways, introducing South Africa to power hour and having my life changed in a small township outside Cape Town. Africa…..there are no words to how incredible it was.

I surprised my best friend in NYC for her birthday

I saw two of my best and closest friends marry each other

My mind is blown away by this year. Exploring San Francisco, visiting Omid in Houston, Jordan’s Bachelor Party in Phoenix, seeing my sister dance, Halloween in the Castro, Stanford games with Niamh, Fourth of July in Seattle, San Antonio Debauchery, Atlanta Debauchery, New York Debauchery, Jumbo Margaritas with Brian, conquering the world with Deborah, crazy adventures with Micah, seeing my sister dance. I know I am forgetting so much, but that is good because there was just THAT much that happened in 2009. Thank GOD for picture sets to remind me forever.

e la vita la vita si fa grande così…….e comincia domani

It was the year I decided to follow my dreams, and most importantly I did it finally being myself.

I guess I am scared to ring in the New Year because it is going to be really hard trying to top this last one. But you know, its going to be one hell of a fun time trying.

HERE IS TO 2010!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!

So the drive from Seattle to San Francisco was brutal. BRUTAL.
I left at six in the morning from Seattle and arrived at my apartment around 10:30 pm.
Also, for some reason as soon as any form of liquid touched my mouth I instantly needed to pee.
Touche God.

The drive from Georgia to Arizona was cakewalk compared to this drive.
That road trip consisted of roads mostly looking like the following:
highway93

The roads from Seattle to San Fran were mostly like this:
Goliath

So combine that road with lots of wind, a trailer strapped to the back on my SUV, semi’s and bad drivers everywhere, plus the craziness that is driving in San Francisco…..I definitely was shaking from all the anxiety when I finally arrived at my apartment.

It could had also been the 2 bajillion Monster Energy drinks I had, but we shall never know.

But yes. I am here. With internet hopefully tomorrow.

So many posts to do and catch up on.The first week here has been hectic, crazy and awesome.

I think ill start with video from Evy’s visit and going away party.

Woot!

I totally forgot that I had yet to post the pictures from San Antonio.
Which is foolish of me because they are great.

We of course had to visit the Alamo.
Because people died there and stuff apparently.
This is me cartwheeling the most likely place that Ozzy Osbourne took a piss.
