Kody, my nerdy boyfriend, received a summer research position at Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia. I, of course, decided to tag along and we left at the beginning of the summer of 2016 for a 3 month stay.
This trip to Maine started in a red minivan with a few of my closest friends. We had decided on Acadia National Park after doing some research on great hiking spots in the United States. We had high hopes for our journey and were set to hit the road.
When planning a trip to the Dry Tortugas it is important to book the campsite at least 3 months in advance. There are only about 10 sites and they go quick especially if it is during a typical vacation month.
I have been lucky enough to visit San Diego twice, however, both trips were two very different adventures. During the first trip, Kody and I stayed with a good friend from home who is enlisted in the US Navy and lived in Imperial Beach.
