Well after this week I can officially check off ‘Take a Road trip’ off of my bucket list! This past week my Dad and I shared the 1,800 mile drive from Massachusetts to North Dakota, with a great deal of fast food, singing (at least on my part) and beautiful scenery.
It was a bit of a real life game of tetris while packing the car, but I am pleased with how I packed and what as able to make it out to North Dakota with me. (To see some of my tips on my packing feel free to check out my post)
The road trip started at one of my favorite coffee shops in North Andover, called Heavenly Donuts. I just love the coconut macaroon iced coffee and am already looking for a great coffee shop here in Bismarck!
It was wonderful passing through the Wisconsin country side, to see the corn, cows and how huge the sky is without skyscrapers in the way.
While we had to sit through about 2 hours of traffic, it was exciting to see the beauty of Chicago’s skyline. I definitely hope to plan a trip soon, to explore such a fun city!
After three days we finally made it to North Dakota, and despite all the bugs left on my car we had such a great time! I’ve spent the past few days visiting local stores, thrifting and decorating my new apartment. I can’t wait to share photos in the upcoming weeks as my place comes together.
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
