Sampling cupcakes at SXSW

As the US Odyssey comes to it’s conclusion, it’s fun to reflect on all the fun times that were had. Thankfully, nothing devastating happened (we were expecting at least something to go awry). After climbing canyons, crossing borders, and doing some serious touristic exploration, we made it back in one piece, and closer than when we left (despite still living out of a Ford Focus wagon).

However, with this concluding post of the US adventures, I wanted to thank my partner in crime, my travel companion, my love, my friend; Shannon Lepere. Without her this trip would have been much less exciting; I wouldn’t have seen some of the most random places in the US, nor would I have eaten at half the diners we did. Still, I wouldn’t trade them for the world.

With this, I’d also like to pass the torch on to her, as she recently started her own photo blog called “Click“.
