I’ve been incredibly busy lately with work, camp counseling and planning my upcoming road trip (more details to come) and haven’t had much time to post. I decided that I would take the time today to share a quick post with some of my favorite bus travel pictures from tour (you can read more about that tour here, here, and here). It’s hard to know exactly where all of these pictures were taken because the miles (and the days) all seem to blur together on the open road. I do know, however, that most of these pictures were taken on I-70, which stretches from Utah to Maryland, though that’s not very specific. Also, sorry for the poor “shot through a window on a moving bus” quality, If I could have stopped and gotten out to take pictures every time that I wanted to, we may never have made it all the way back home.
While in Malibu (more on my trip to Malibu here), we were able to squeeze a free day into our busy schedules to relax and explore. There was no debate about where we wanted to go, and we all piled back on to the bus and set off for Santa Monica Pier and the Pacific Ocean.
On our cross county trip (more about that HERE and HERE if you’ve missed it), we stayed in dorms on Pepperdine University’s campus in Malibu, California. Pulling up to campus was a breath of fresh air after sitting in traffic on the PCH. Not only was the campus breathtakingly beautiful, but it also meant that we would be able to stay in one place for a few days. Prior to arriving at Pepperdine we had been on a tour bus for about a week, staying at a new place every night and living out of our suitcases. Pepperdine immediately became our beautiful home away from home.
Things are finally starting to slow down after my cross-country trip this past week, which means that I finally have time to share some of the things that I’ve seen and done with you! Though it’s a little out of order, I thought that the best place to start would be the Grand Canyon.
I’ve got a big cross-country trip coming up in about two weeks (which you may have read about here) that I’m really excited about. For cost saving purposes, the group that I’m going with will be splitting up and staying with host homes almost every night of our 15-day trip. It’s no secret that housing can be one of the most costly expenses while on vacation, and staying at host homes, or trying programs like couchsurfing, are great options.
