orange you glad

Starting last Sunday we drove from Minnesota to Iowa to Nebraska to Colorado to Nevada to Utah to a tiny bit of Arizona and finally to California. We are exhausted but happy- now it's time to focus on getting the apartment together and finding work.

In case you're wondering, we stayed at the Golden Gate Casino in Las Vegas, which is in the "old" section of Vegas. We eventually made our way over to strip, but I enjoyed the Container Park (plenty of artsy shops and bars) and the Fremont Street Experience (weird light shows? tiny bayou themed coin slot machine casinos? yes) the most. The hotel itself was kind of a mess though, so I'd recommend finding lodging elsewhere.

Final destination

 And! A bonus video from the passenger window:


  1. Very happy for your safe arrival. Looking forward to warm light-filled photos! Good luck finding a wonderful apartment! XO

  2. appropriate postcard is appropriate. glad you made it over, can't wait to see what's next!

  3. Splendid! Hope you enjoy your stay here, and remain restless far as home improvement is concerned. Though there are other kinds of flats that you can check out. There might be something you don't find to your liking after a few months stay, so it's best to keep some options open.
