Hi guys! Long time, no post!! I’ve been so busy with school starting, working, and traveling! ‘Adulting’ is hard. As told in my last post, here, I mentioned at the end that I was going on a road trip. It was so cool just traveling without a destination. As most of you may know, 99.9% of the time, I have the travel bug. I just want to travel all over. I grew up traveling, from Mexico, to the Grand Canyon. As amazing as it was, I don’t remember those places because I was pretty young. Thankfully we have those old VCR tapes documenting my childhood but seeing in on TV is definitely not the same as seeing it with your own eyes.
I’ve always tried to be spontaneous but spontaneity tends to stress me out. I woke up Friday in my own bed and didn’t know where I was going to go to sleep that night. That kind of stuff just causes me to freak. (I was prepared to sleep in my car but I assumed it would be sooo creepy sleeping in a parking lot. Besides, my windows have absolutely NO tint on them so you’ll be able to see right in… Not exactly a peaceful night’s rest, I’d say. first world problems. lol) Needless to say, I loved it anyways. I loved not knowing of where to go. Such adrenaline in the weirdest way!
Anyways! Kyle and I (my photographer 😉 ) flipped a coin to see what direction we were going in. Either West or South. West it was! I haven’t been to the mountains in such a long time. (When I see mountains, I get chill bumps, am I the only one? ha.) We were headed on I-40 to the mountains. The driving really wasn’t bad at all. My butt hurt from sitting so long but it was such a blast. If you are roadtrip with someone you enjoy spending your time with, the time seriously flies. When we saw something we were interested in seeing, we stopped! It was so cool! I realized that there was absolutely no reason to stress! We ended up stopping at Blue Ridge Parkway since I’ve never been but honestly, I was slightly disappointed. 🙁 I guess in the area we were in, the views were not as beautiful as I heard they would be. It was pretty but I imagined that you would be able to stand out on ledges. Again, it was probably just the area we were in. Some of the pictures turned out sooo bad because we were in the car and the reflection of the car was in the photos, oops. I also tried to get pictures of every county we drove through, but they came so fast, the camera wasn’t on, but I really did try. In case you forgot what mountains look like, you can see them above, ha. I’m not in most pictures because sometimes, you just have to enjoy the scenery! When I was like, 14 – 15, I went to Europe and only took pictures that I was in because I wanted to make the pic worth looking at. HAHA! Wasn’t I was freaking conceited. lol, looking back I laugh really hard and I regret it because I didn’t have many landscape photos. It was just an awkward brace faced teen with bad style in front of iconic markings. Luckily, i’ve grown up a bit from then and learned that being behind the camera is just as lovely as standing in front of it. Stay tuned to my next post to see where we went after the mountains! Thanks so much for reading!! XOX
