Matkapalaveri on pidetty ja päälinjoista on sovittu

Porvoo, Finland

Marika ja Pekka kertoivat lähtevänsä matkalle ameriikan suureen ihmemaahan Samuelin ja Katjan luona vietetyssä ket-ty-getörissä. Marika lipsautti sivusuun Saaralle ja Jannelle ehdotuksen yhteisreissusta, josta Kaivokselan poppoo innostui välittömästi. Muutaman päivän vuntsimisen jälkeenkin reissuun lähteminen tuntui riittävän hyvältä idealta ottaa töistä lomaa ja tilata samat lennot ja hotellit kuin M&P:lla.

Paria viikoa myöhemmin J&S vierailivat Porvoossa suunnittelemassa apaut-tota-tona-päivänä-ja-tota-tona -matkasuunnitelmaa, johon pääpiirteissään kuuluu muutaman päivän visiitti Vegasiin, turistien elokuvastudiotouri, Disney-sedän huvipuistopäivä, lippujen saamisesta riippuva NHL-ottelu ja shoppailua outlet-myymäläparatiiseissa. Lisäksi Jannela on suunnitelmissa tavata ystävänsä Kaisa, joka on jo vuosia asustellut LA:ssa. Jos Kaisalal on aikaa suomituristien opastuspäivään niin se pyritään toki mahduttamaan ohjelmistoon.

Escape from LA

Los Angeles, United States

There are few people in my life that I feel I will forever be bonded to in a particular way. Melodie is one. We can go ages with out seeing or talking to each other. However, when we finally get to romp around the same city the adventures will make the ground shake.

Feeling stagnant and tired in Atlanta, I set out for Los Angeles. Five days of craziness followed and a rejuvenated lust for travel lingered as I went back to Atlanta. Meeting people, bar hoping, drinking champagne in the pool and eating out in the LA fashion were enjoyable. Meeting up with Carl and getting to spend some time with him was a delight. However, watching Melodie throw a tantrum for the power being out in 100 heat, yelling at bicycles that we were 'bylegicles' on the Venice Beach bike path, 'marching around the block with a sword and shield, falling and getting four HUGE bruises, rocking Disneyland with whiskey sours and all the good conversations in between were what made this trip.

Arriving at LAX at 6am to find that all the standbys were full...for the entire day...was not as much fun. I went into traveler mode, hightailed it to John Wayne Airport in Orange County and got on a flight out of there. In the six hours I was forced to wait in the airport, I acquired an Arnold Schwarzenegger t-shirt that says 'the Govenator,' satisfaction for a day spent watching planes take off.

The downfall of an amazing week in LA is that it gave me the strongest desire to just keep traveling and not come back to Atlanta. I thought the break would make me happier at home but it left me with stronger urges to be in other cities. The coping mechanism; meet new people here.

LA - I fell in love with you, in that strange sort of 'i know you will hurt me but I can't help it' way. I want to come back before I leave the country...we will see.

Home Sweet Home

Los Angeles, United States

So we woke up this morning, on this last day of our journey, at 7:34am. Mike had wanted to sleep in, but I thought it would be best to get an early start.

We finished the zucchini bread for breakfast, which was sad. Tricia- it was the best snack we had the whole trip!! So, so good =)

We drove through the desert pretty much the entire day. Highest temperature: 102 degrees. We went to stop for lunch, and there was only one place within 100 miles- a Dairy Queen. It was crazy busy and the food was what you'd expect. It was especially silly because it took as long as it would have to stop at a sit-down restaurant. But such is life.

From there we continued on. Nothing happened until shortly after we entered California. It started to get a bit smoky- hazy, from the smog, perhaps. And then you could smell smoke. And then... fire engines raced past with their sirens on. And the road pretty much became impassable. Traffic was extremely slow and we could barely see out in front of us because of all the smoke. Turns out, there were multiple little fires burning all along the side of the highway. Welcome to California!

Even so, we made good time and got here around 4:30. We only brought a few things in with us. First order of business: We made the bed. Mike napped.

Then, we then made a quick trip to Walmart for some supplies- an air conditioner (much needed!), cat litter (since we left it at home, and we were there), and a mattress pad. The Walmart was crazy!! It was three stories high, with escalators and elevators, and the outside looked like a Macy's.

Mike set up the ac when we got back (it works great!), but we didn't re-do the bed. And to sleep we went.

  • We'll continue to update so you all can see our new place once we've finished moving in! Thanks for coming along on our journey with us! =)
