Back to the "Real" World

Wow, has it only been a week and a half? Amazing how quickly I've assimilated right back into the day to day! Isn't it strange how experiences can sometimes make you question your perception of time? The trip is already starting to seem like a distant memory and I've just barely finished getting all of the laundry done.

It has been 10 days since our return to the OC and I've had a little bit of time to sit back and think about the adventure we just had. My conclusion? We are the luckiest people in the world! A U.S. road trip should be a required course in all college curriculum. There's no better way to really connect with this country other than seeing it and experiencing it. Plus you learn a lot about yourself along the way. I'm so glad we decided to take the trip despite all of the excuses we came up with beforehand. I guess sometimes you've just got to say screw it and just do it.

Over the last 10 days it's been really interesting talking with friends and family...I had no idea so many of you were actually reading my blog! I must say, it's nice to think I've got a fan base out there (and I didn't even have to bribe anyone!). And for those of you living vicariously through my travels, I'm not stopping anytime soon. Europe is next on the list, so be sure to keep checking in.

PS- Many of you have asked about the status of the Magic Van (or "Maggie" as James and I like to call her). She's parked safely in James' driveway and is available for rent (or for sale) if any of you are thinking about taking an impromptu adventure. In fact, at the end of April Maggie will be escorting our friends, Jake and Lovely, on a long-weekend voyage up the California coast to Big Sur. Vive le Voyage!
