Spring Breaks: Part I - The Journey to the Golden State

Ok, I realize I've definitely missed the on-time blogging boat. I apologize. So once again I am forced to re-cap.

I believe I left off right before Kylie and I left for California for spring break. It was a crazy trip starting off with us leaving at 10 am on Friday Morning. We had originally planned on leaving Thursday, but due to math quizzes and such, we left a little later than intended. We ventured out on our 12 hour drive to our Los Angeles destination.

Hour 1
Imagine this: driving down I-15 between Brigham City and Layton. You see a car with an oddly long antennae protruding from the roof. As you start to pass it, you see an elderly person driving with a headset on. Strange right? Now imagine seeing 12+ of these cars trucking down the interstate. Thats exactly what we saw. A convoy of senior citizens making their trek across the country. It was hilarious, and we couldn't laugh harder.

Hour 2
Pit stop at Fazzoli's. Gourmet Italian food to go!

Hours 3, 4, 5, & 6
Mostly just a lot of driving, road rage, 90's music (backstreet boys, celine dion, etc.), and stopping at state lines to take pictures.

Hour 7
Viva Las Vegas! My first time driving through Sin City was amazing. While passing all of the beautiful (and some not so beautiful) architechture we rolled down the windows and embraced all of the UV's descending from the sky (only 7 hours earlier, we faced rain and 4 inches of you can imagine our excitement to be wearing shorts and driving with the windows down). And then we saw it. Driving next to us was the most beautiful car we'd ever seen. The epitome of every girls dreams...well at least our dreams. A black Audi A4 with diamond encrusted accents i.e. the logo and grill. We were definitely jealous of the seemingly glamourous girl driving it.

Hour 8
CALIFORNIA! The golden state was finally beneath our tires.

Hours 9, 10, 11, and 12
The excitement of being in the state full of glamour and plastic people soon wore off as we endured hours of the most boring drive we could remember.

Hour 13
We have reached Los Angeles. It was beautiful. Lights everywhere (which was nice after the 4 hours of pure darkness). We were so excited to have finally reached our destination that we missed our exit. Then we got lost in downtown L.A. which was an adventure to say the least. We roamed the business district, fashion district, and then finally made our way back onto the interstate heading to and arriving at the house of Sibylle, our lovely hostess.
