Road Trip! CA to CO

Shortly after I met Devin it became clear that we might be in it for the long haul. We spent hours talking on long hikes, and lingered over dinner and drinks discussing our pasts, but mostly our near and distant futures. Devin was a few years out from finishing his PhD, and I had just started my Master's in Art Therapy which would take me at least 2 years to complete.

We both had a sense that once we were done with school we could be ready to leave the Bay Area for professional reasons. Also, after ~8 years in once place we anticipated we might be ready for a change of scenery as well.

The Grand Plan looked something like this:

  • Get jobs elsewhere (In America or Abroad).
  • Take 3 months off before starting jobs.
    • Job in America = Travel abroad for 3 months (Vietnam, Laos, Bali) 
    • Job Abroad = Road trip across the states
  • Move and get back to work.
The Grand Plan in reality was even better:
  • Devin gets job in England
  • Road trip Yosemite
  • Move from Berkeley
  • Road trip across CA, NV, UT, CO
  • Honeymoon in Buena Vista
  • Visit friends and family in the Mighty Midwest
  • Ship stuff to England
  • Move to England

Here are just a few pictures from our road trip this summer.

  1. Wow, gorgeous pictures! Looks like a lot of what we did (and loved!!!) when we were pre-weds and newlyweds. Fun to see, glad I stumbled on this post.
