When the Aussie was here visiting, we took a road trip out West. From Saturday to Saturday, we drove from Minnesota to Utah and back, passing through Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho (briefly), and South Dakota. Minnesota isn't the most strategically-placed state for a road trip. You have to drive through a lot of grass ... and I mean a lot.
After three weeks in Greece, I boarded another (short, this time!) flight and embarked on a quick trip to a city I'd never really given much thought to prior to ... like, well, a month ago. I kind of spontaneously decided to go to Istanbul. When in southern Europe, right?
I'm on my last day of spending a week in L.A. before heading to Australia. The chaos of planning an overseas move overwhelmed me to a point I didn't think was possible, and I'm so glad that my amazing friends in SoCal welcomed me into their studio apartment to spend a week decompressing.
Spending two weeks in the East Attica region of southern Greece was pretty cool. East Attica is on mainland Greece, and it's very coastal and mountainous. As this was my first time in Greece, I was really happy that we were staying in a not-so-touristy part of the country.
