Just a little note to say what we have been up to in the last few days that we have in the US- we leave on Wednesday morning and get back Thursday morning- nice…
Mike got some football tickets from a guy at work so we went to watch Real Salt Lake vs. Chivas USA. It was funny to just see how totally different Americans take football (soccer!)- lots of little things made us laugh such as how they have to try and advertise everything all the time (‘Subway’ Substitutions and ‘American First’ Replays) and the half time things are very unlike the UK- people were dressed up in KFC food wrapping and had to ‘sing for their chicken dinner’- most random!! The game was good though and the side we were there to support won 3-0 whoop!
For our last weekend we went up to Idaho and stayed at a Cabin in Island Park (aka Middle-of-nowhere-ville). It was a lovely cabin out by itself in the fields and they had quad bikes etc to roam around with. We went to Yellowstone National Park on the Saturday and the Sunday and pretty much drove the length of the park- lots of driving but beautiful views and wild animals to see. We were driving right along side a huge bison at one point which was rather awesome and saw elk and stag in the lake. We were hoping to see a bear, Mike was particularly excited about that haha, but alas no luck! Mike and I went swimming in the Firehole river- it wasn’t a very warm day so were some of the only people in the water which was good. We had the convertable car back for the weekend which helped us to get a tan (or in my case a really red sunburnt nose!! It’s been funny, the last two weekends we are here we get totally sunburnt!! Hope it all goes brown… quickly!!
We have had some great adventures while we have been here in the states- 3 months has just flown by! Looking forward to getting back home and going to my sisters wedding etc but things are going to be crazy busy as we find somehwere to live and I will be back to work on Monday *Sigh* Back to reality…. 🙂
