Katie and Sam's House
So obviously we haven't updated our little travel journal at all since we've been on our trip. It's not because we don't like you, I promise, but because silly Sunny forgot the charger to her computer and then listened to music the whole way up to San Fran and mr. Computer died. So we were out of a computer very early on in the trip. Luckily I have a fantastic mom who sent me the charger in Minnesota.
So now that you're up to date on what happened to the updates, let me tell you a little about the trip thus far:
SAN FRANCISCO, CA
Our first stop was San Fran where we stayed in a hotel
After leaving San Fran we headed on our longest car ride of the trip to Newberg, Or. It took about 11 hours to reach it but the drive was BEAUTIFUL!!! Traffic went well until we hit a dead stop due to an accident. There was probably about 2 cop cars, 3 ambulances and a fire truck that drove past us but when we got to the sight it was just a little fender bender... 6 emergency vehicles for a little accident? All Ben could say was “God Bless America”... actually it’s kinda been his signature saying on the road trip. Being from Switzerland and all, he can’t help but laugh at some of American’s ridiculous antics. Although occasionally he says it as more of a “no God.... really Bless America” i.e. our great prices on everything compared to Switzerland.
Anyway, during our 11 hour drive we started seeing snow. It was the closest to snow I’d been for like 4 years!!! I was SO PUMPED! By the time we got to our destination though, there wasn’t any snow on the ground. We had a great time though with amazing friends we had met in NZ, Sam and Katie! We got to stay up and chat til the wee hours of the night.
