Today is the one year anniversary of my trip to California and Nevada. The trip was mainly the reason I started this blog so that I could keep friends and family updated. This idea failed miserably as I didn’t account for a power spike that would make the server look like it was on when it was in fact off. I guess there is a reason why paid hosting is better. If you want to reminisce with me, you can start at the post “We’re heeere“.
Looking back now the trip is a turning point for me as a person. If my appetite to travel was whetted before, this trip made me drunk. I didn’t expect to like America as much as I did or find it so beautiful. I was blown away by it’s excessiveness. I had a horrible hangover when we got home and probably spent two months adjusting to not being there. For something that was only 20 days out of my life it has made a huge impact.
I now understand why so many songs are written about California.
