Road Trip from California to NY (Day 2)

Road Trip from California to NY (Day 2)

*

Dear friends and family, day 2 of our trip was successful. Here is the report:

After breakfast at the hotel we said good-bye to the place. The man who helped us with the luggage was super nice and friendly and very talkative. He volunteered to share lots of tips about life with us. He said that his good looks were due to riding his bicycle everyday. He’s about to turn 60 but looks more like 50, and he was very proud of it. I felt inspired to get a bicycle when we arrive in NY so instead of 43 I can look 33. icon smile Road Trip from California to NY (Day 2)

But as I was thinking about my future bicycle, we discovered a little problem. The chains that someone had installed at the U-Haul place in LA were touching the ground and were turning our car into a mobile firework generator. Those chains were so worn out! Imagine all the sparks that they produced from LA to Las Vegas.

So we had to head to the closest U-Haul to fix this. Someone super nice did it in 10 minutes. Thank you! You can see his leg in the picture below.

The rest of the time we spent it on the road. I was mesmerized by the drops of rain drawing unexpected designs on the windshield. Everything is more interesting when it rains, including the sounds.

Then, after it stops raining, you can see the tiny drops on the glass just taking it easy and letting the sun return them back up to the clouds.

The places that we saw on our way to the Grand Canyon were all amazing, quiet, relaxing and inspiring. One of my favorite was the one on the picture below. We stopped the car to take several pictures over there. Once back in the car I decided that if I were an extra terrestrial, I would definitely pick this place for landing.

I would park my ET vehicle here and then I would send my team of robots to explore the area.

So, this is more or less how day 2 of this road trip went for us. Now we’re spending the night at a lodge named: Red Feather Lodge. Tomorrow, meaning today, because I wrote this last night, we will be seeing one of the most amazing places ever: The Grand Canyon. We can’t wait!!

Have a wonderful day!

  1. Dear Elsa, thank you for sharing. I wish you and your family all the best as you begin your big move! Your photos and descriptions are a relaxing way for me to begin the day here in an Oz-like office building in Chicago (with constant pounding outside as a 170-story building is under construction practically next door–help me Rhonda!!) Please know the trip you share is very enjoyable and provides some lovely peace during these early morning moments. Take good care.

  2. I love your travelogue! It reminds me of road trips with my parents when the hotel criteria was must have swimming pool as we trekked across BC and Alberta most summers. I think you are creating wonderful memories with your children they will never forget this adventure that leads to your new home.
