I’ve been lazy on the blog front. Okay, lazy on every front. Since the last time I wrote, Adam has had a whole 3 months off work. While he was out adventuring – trekking around Nepal and then hiking about Tasmania, I was holding down the fort. Which translates directly to working + television watching. I feel like I’ve accomplished a whole lot – like taking down Abu Nazeer with Carrie on Homeland. There really hadn’t been much to fill you in on…..until the holidays!
We started our US adventures with a quick trip to Palm Springs. A place I have been wanted to visit for quite awhile now.
We stayed at the Orbit Inn. Recommend! What’s not to love about a cocktail hour by the pool and complimentary beach cruisers to check out the town. Which included this larger than large statue of Marilyn Monroe:
There was some terrain out the back. I pretended to be adventurous for a moment…
After leaving Palm Springs – we drove to Joshua Tree National Park. I imagine if you’re into rock climbing it would be a dream come true. For me, I enjoyed the sights – especially the wackadoodle trees. The highlight was when a wolfpack crossed the street in front of our car.
California has provided us with a great stepping stone between Australian and the US. Next it’s off to Philadelphia for a White Christmas!
