A little of this, a little of that

Sorry about the being M.I.A., getting back together after a trip has never been my strong suite with it. This one picture to the left is from an Indian ruins that he wanted to go to after our Verde Train ride through the canyons which was 3 hours, and surprisingly, romantic. When I’ve taken train rides it’s been in a rush to get someplace, I nearly fall over if I don’t hold onto something, and everyone just wants to be someplace else when they are on the train. Kind of like when you fly an airplane, so being on a scenic train where the purpose is to be there is a different feel, but a nice one.

We sat out on the open deck and just took pictures. It was kind of drizzling outside, not pouring, when we were out on the train deck so I found that pretty romantic. The train ride was pretty awesome and a definite highlight of the trip.

He and I originally were supposed to stay at this lady’s apartment which my mother pushed us to do. Was one of her worst ideas ever because we were connected to her house, she never left the house, and the whole place had horrible sound proofing so we could hear her downstairs in her office (which we had to go through to get outside) and so whenever he and I talked we whispered. The man and I ended up getting a hotel nearby because that was certainly not what we were expecting and there was more than just that which was wrong with the place.

With our move to a different place, a hotel, we got the best views of Sedona. Absolutely gorgeous, and it had its own little sunset patio for just the guests who were there.

We also did a Red Rock Jeep Tour, which was so much fun, with an old ‘cowboy’ as our guide for the 3 hour tour. Plus, our companions were a bunch of rowdy Irishmen (and 1 woman, who had the men under her command) who were too funny! They only paid for the first tour so we ended up with the second part of it all alone, which was pretty nice. Though, I must admit, I missed the Irishmen (and 1 woman) because they were cracking me up.

The trip was really a great experience because the food + service in Sedona was fantastic. Plus, I couldn’t get over the views because they were just so gorgeous it was like we were constantly driving through a canvas instead of it being real life. I’d go there again, and again, for sure, and especially with the man. He just made it that much more special, relaxing, and romantic.

We finished out the trip in Phoenix and stayed at this 5 star hotel which he got a deal on. They had like 7-8 pools, so I was definitely going to try to get a mediocre tan and we sat out by the pool for like 3 hours. And, we went late at night to go in the pool under the stars and then sit out to dry under the stars.

I’ll be getting back into the swing of things, but will keep on looking at the pictures to relive it every so often.


A picture says it all

Let’s just say I’m a little too tired to write too much. The trip was amazing, but I came back kind of worse for wear especially with my first day back to work. I was a mess. And, I haven’t had time to unpack fully since we got home very late on Thursday because of standby flying issues.

I also have just barely been able to start reading up on my blogs I follow, I didn’t have any internet access and he and I stayed pretty disconnected with our phones, lap top, etc. (Except for him and his GPS, and his work seeming to call him every day on our trip.)

Here’s some of the pictures from the trip. More to come, don’t worry!
