The last 3 days have been a real change of pace for us and we kinda lost our road trip groove a little bit. The stationary life is sucking us in.. It’s been so nice to wake up and have a kitchen handy. Ricky cooked eggs for us two days in a row! We have a refrigerator stocked with juice, soy milk, and chardonnay. Not to mention, I’ve been showering on the daily! Our sublet is right next to an adorable dog park that is perfect for running. And check this convenience- when I’m done running, I have a hot shower waiting for me at home. We have pretty much everything we need just a couple blocks away. Grocery store, nail salon, sushi, Mexican all within walking distance. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed waking up with next to nothing on the agenda, being able to lounge around in the apt if that’s what we feel like. We even have our own space!!! (sort of). I can be at the kitchen table on my computer while Ricky is up in the loft watching TV!!!! Unreal. We still have a couple weeks more of the road trip left and while we really don’t want it to end, we’re kind of torn at this point. We’re hungry to settle in and start building a life outside the van. At the same time, we’re kind of itching to get in the van and move along. We kind of regret stopping in San Fran. It’s definitely slowed our roll a little bit. But it’s also given us a taste of what’s to come. And we like what we see.
Only 12 days left on the road then its job hunting time. We don’t have that much more to see, 2 cities, a handful on small attractions, and some really big trees await us. Then it’s back down the coast as the Great Escape nears its end.
Its only been 3 days but I know that climbing back into the van life will take some adjusting.
