Last weekend my handsome hubby and I with our three-legged puppy took a quick, (semi)spontaneous trip to Albuquerque (from Denver) to see one of my favorite bands (Lord Huron) in concert. It was super fun and exhausting and relaxing strangely.
Generally if we are driving a long distance we are usually on our way to my parent’s house for a week or so- which are planned out and highly anticipated trips to me. They’re also super familiar- I know the road back to my parents house really well. We know which rest stops have the nicest bathrooms and best restaurants- we know exactly when we will need to stop for gas and what times are best for the clearest traffic.
This trip on the other hand- I’ve never been to Albuquerque so we had fun deciding the day of the trip which route to take (we opted for the most scenic one even though it added some time). We purchased the tickets a while back, a hotel that was close to the theater, and I asked for the time off… but that’s about it. :)
We picked out a book that matched the length of the trip based on what my phone said (The Last American Vampire by Seth Grahame-Smith.. it was no Abraham Lincoln : Vampire Hunter, but it was really good). We grabbed a bunch of snacks and my hubby’s GoPro and we set out.
We filmed our travels and I made a little video about our road trip- it is actually my first video I’ve made and some of the footage is from my phone since they didn’t let cameras into the theater. I thought I would share it with you- I had a lot of fun making it.
Now you MUST check out Lord Huron if you haven’t already. They’re one of my favorite bands, and they were absolutely fantastic live. :D
