Howard Travel Journal {train stations & guest bedrooms}


 
we felt like the tiniest humans
as we wandered around the busy city streets with huge backpacks.
looking up bus schedules, trying to find our next bed.
during our California adventure, the majority of the time we used public transportation & slept in spare bedrooms from airbnb.
it was truly an adventure.
filled with being lost, lots of walking, less sleep.
delays, waiting, inconvenience.
but crossing paths with so many beautiful individuals we wouldn’t normally have met
as we sat next to them on the bus, slept on their air mattress,
or when they helped us find our way.

Howard Travel Journal {Palm Springs Aerial Tramway}

 
8,516 ft above palm springs
we found ourselves in the midst of the woods & 60 degree temps.
atop San Jacinto Mountain.
peering across the valley below
feeling like dr. seuss whos.
& not believing we were just in that below,
in the midst of cacti & 110 degree temps.

The Saguaro to The Ace
& every restaurant in between.
desert bike rides,
late night swims,
midnight fries.
Palm Springs, we will be back.
