Time to break the blog ice, finally:) It's been an amazing 2 weeks, with very little internet access, and now we have to catch you guys up on everything...where to start?!
Venice Beach - we aniticpated a somewhat relaxing weekend, getting ready for a long flight, but really contined our streak of celebrating we began back in Denver, a looooong time ago. It was a weekend of brothers who became our Brotha's from Anotha Motha's - they took us in and showed us a great time, and we truly appreciate their hospitality and their friendship:) Dirty Danowski (Beth's bro) showed us around VB, we cruised our bikes around the strip, ate the greatest banana pancakes at Benice, played vball and hackeysack, and soaked in the oddball character of this very un-LA beach scene. I put on my pinstriped mucsle pants and showed the dudes on Muscle Beach how to pump some iron. Not really but only because I forgot to pack them. We rode our bikes and skateboard (pitcure Heath on a big banana board!) to the bars and they somehow carried us home after, back to Dirty's for our late-night badminton extravaganza
It was a weekend of an odd sort of limbo - suspended in time, not quite real yet that we were leaving, because our focus was still on hanging with friends and celebrating - we hadn't really turned our thoughts to what we were about to jump into. I don't think we let those thoughts come until we got on the plane and landed in Nadi and really got our feet wet.
H of HI:
Hello America! We are in New Zealand, but this entry is about LA! I'm going to keep these short and sweet with good short storylines from each place. Cause you always gotta have atleast one good story from each adventure, right Timmay!?!?!
My first story is a threadline for our entire trip. It's about flowin'! Everytime we just go with it, everthing just comes foward perfectly. If it wasn't for helping Beth out of a jam over the holidays with a place to stay in the mountains during a blizzard, which happened to be Matt & Mike Niemans place, we wouldn't have met Dirty. Awesome place in Venice Beach, friendly roommates, useage of bikes to get around, comfy futon, badmitton in the back yard - George is king!, drunk biking and skateboarding home from the beach bars
Can't get the RATBAG pictures to upload to travelpod, so here are 4 measly LA pics, more exciting ones to come when we get to a different internet station!! http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=11649&id=707714753
