10 years later

In 2006 Washington was the first city we visit in the USA. In 2016, Washington was the last city we spend time. Of course we needed a ‘then’ and ‘now’ picture. Back then we did not take many pictures featuring us. It was with a DSLR and selfiesticks did not exist yet. So the one with the camera (me) is not that often the subject.

Day 27: 3 more kilo

Today was the day to distribute all the stuff we had bought into our 6 suitcases. The benfit of flying with air Iceland is that you can check in 2 big suitcases (23 kilo-50 pound) and take 1 carry on (8 kilo) and 1 personal object PER PERSON.
So our Outwell Chillbin became a 3rd suitcase. And one extra bag that is very tiny when rolled together suddenly was our 4th.

We did the magic trick with the scale and removing all package and unnecessary papers.   Peter lost the bet: we were 3 kilo under weight limit. Se we went shopping😉 Realy we did.
3 more dresses for me and some stuff for Peter.

The only problem would be: how do we get home once we land in Brussels. But I just booked a taxibus and we could drive with two carts to the bus. So all problems solved.

Day 24: From Lakewood to Fairmont

After a very short night (sleeping with 2 in a bed that just fits 1 person is not optimal) I woke up to meet Linda, the other couchsurfing staying that night with Jesse. She even invited us to stay in San Fransisco with her and her familily when we ever travel back to that area. I have her businesscard😉 Lees verder →
