In November, George and I set off for two months of family and friends, long days in the car, fast food, sightseeing, hikes, snow and a number of mishaps but no major injuries or troubles. Friends, it was the Great American Road Trip. We went from DC to Portland and so much in-between. These are (a handful of) the photos. If you want back story and diaries and all that, try Instagram: @amberwphoto (and currently for my 365 project and Swedish anecdotes and photos) - I'll give you the goods here and spare you the ramblings. The route: Virginia, from Safari Park to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Durham, North Carolina and Dwight and Laurie: David's first corn dog: South Carolina: Georgia: Florida: Seacrest Wolf Preserve: New Orleans: Houston: Austin: Fort Worth: Amarillo: Santa Fe: Fort Collins, Colorado: Arches, Utah: Monument Valley, Arizona: Antelope Canyon: Horseshoe Bend: Dinosaur Tracks (fifteen minutes down the road from the bend): Flagstaff: Oatman, Arizona: Joshua Tree, California: Los Angeles: Portland: Ostrich World USA: Big Sur: Santa Cruz, CA: Suburbia, CA: Literally all of our stuff on the way to the airport. And now we live in Sweden! It's been a reasonably good first two weeks. The weather here is terrible. Very little sunlight and even then, it's mostly cloudy gloom and/or rain. We've had a handful of days with sunshine and one big snow storm. Otherwise, things are good. Our apartment is adorable and in a great location. The public transport is top-notch. George likes his job. I haven't got a lot to do but I'm working on it. Language classes start next week. More to come.
