Travel Thursday

The Great Northwest

Yeah! This Saturday, I will actually be traveling. I'll be leaving the tropics for 9 days in the Great Northwest. I am excited for cooler temperatures and fresh mountain air. I even got a few new winter apparel items, which I'm excited about.

First, I will be in Truckee/Reno/Tahoe for 5 days, and then travel up North to the Willamette Valley of Oregon, as I'm a bridesmaid in a dear friend's wedding. I'm very excited to return to my college town and walk around the beautiful campus. Anyone ever see the silly film, Animal House? It was filmed at the University of Oregon, and yes I even attended a few soirees in the original fraternity house of the movie!

Can't wait to share more of my trip when I return!
I will have scheduled posts though, but limited internet access to visit my friends.
Will do my best. ;)

Happy Traveling!!
