spontaneous road trips

In this last month of school, we’ve started trying to cram everything in that we always said we’d do during college.  I’m pretty sure we’ll never achieve everything, but we’re sure gonna try to make the most of the time we have left.  So last weekend, we took a spontaneous road trip to Colorado.  (Not entirely spontaneous, the planning started on a Sunday and we left Friday afternoon.  So, we did put SOME thought into this).

I’m not going to regurgitate the trip itinerary, but I want to mention a couple things.  Erin and I had done a road trip to Colorado once this summer, but two of my roommates came along this time, too.  It was really great to have a chance to spend the whole weekend with them, because I feel like I’m hardly ever in our apartment and we’re all so busy that we don’t get enough time to hang out.

We put an emphasis on “doing CO on the cheap” on this trip, which I think forced us to really explore the area and check out the things that make Colorado unique, instead of just shopping or doing something we could have done in Omaha.  Downtown Boulder was an adorable area to mosey around, the scenic drive was gorgeous (even though it made me car sick), and the self-guided tour of the Coors Brewery was really fun.  Downtown Denver is always fabulous, albeit the most expensive part of our day!

Even though we spent 16 hours driving to and from, and really only one day in Colorado, it was a great trip.  I love traveling and hopefully will continue to have many more blog posts about road trips 🙂
