The house we stay in was designed by my grandfather, and it's the only property of his we have left to claim as our own. (Well, us and a whole host of other peeps but whatevs.) I couldn't have been happier to be up there this summer with my parents and husband, and to be able to show him all the reasons why I fell in love with Idaho long ago. Making new memories with him was more fun than I thought possible, but I must admit, a lot of the fun stemmed from getting there.
On the first day we drove through a ridiculous storm to tackle a place called Vermilion Cliffs...in the DARK. Seriously? Cliffs?? The storm then moved through Utah where we stayed the night. It thundered for houuuuurs, and our room ended up totally flooding. Oh, and lightning stuck the hotel down the street. Uh, what dude? Luckily the next day took us to Zion (AMAZING) and down roads where there was nothing but blue sky ahead. Upon arrival? Wine, cool air and the sound of the river. Yes please! Anyway, you know how this story ends: Us having a great time, me looking at houses and jobs, everyone laughing at the ridiculousness of the idea, yada yada. Sigh.
And so concludes this edition of, "things I'll be dreaming of while at work." I hope each of you had a chance to take off on some kind of adventure this summer, even if it was just to the mall (let's be real, that happens). And speaking of vacations, happy almost Friday everyone. Here's to a short week, great memories, and well, Travelzoo.
