Rosie and Miya are traveling cross-country this summer! We'll be trying to update every day as we take the train from San Francisco, California to Stamford, Connecticut along with our mom.
Most of the posts will simply be words, but all photos taken along the way will be posted when we return to our home!
We hope you enjoy this journal of our trip! :)
Rosie here. We’re home. I know we were super lame about posting on the trip, but the Kindle didn’t like to let me type more than three words at a time before the keyboard went away, so you’ll all forgive me for losing patience quickly.
I plan to start back at the beginning and write details about every day, promise.
Miya here. So we spent 3 nights at the Grand Canyon, and then drove from thereee to Hurricane Valley at the foot of Zion National Park. Spent a night there and then drove to Salt Lake City to pick my daddy up from the airport and go back to Provo to visit my middle sister. <3 So great to see her! Leaving Tuesday at 3:30 in the morning from Salt Lake City to travel by train, a whopping 34 hour trip to Chicago.
Rosie here, day three.
Today we met Seth and Scot at a delicious little breakfast place. Then we checked out of the hotel, went to the ferry building to get our Amtrak tickets for the rest of the trip, and drove around the city a whole bunch. We went to Lombard St, where there is a fabulous view of Coit Tower and Alcatraz Island. Then we went to the Palace of Fine Arts, where Miya and I could not for the life of us figure out what the heck was turning the water so damn green.
Then we went and ate dim sum for the third day in the row. It was delish.
Now we’re all hanging out in the house for a bit, and Miya and Mom are headed to Santa Rosa later this evening to visit a friend of Mom’s until Monday. I’m staying here until Saturday, and going to opening night of the Gay and Lesbian Film Festival in the Castro Theatre tonight with Seth and Scot. Tomorrow I’m planning on exploring the Castro some more (so excited!) and hanging out with Seth and seeing some more queer films. Then I’ll take the bus up to Santa Rosa to hang out until Monday.
I’m very excited about the film festival opening night. The movie is called Vito, and Seth worked with him at the GAA many years ago.
Anywho, that’s it for now, going to rest before tonight :)
