Trip 2013: Idaho, and a bit of Oregon


The last couple of days have been filled with a lot of driving.  We left Montana, travelled a bit through Northern Idaho, and yesterday we entered Oregon.  A lot of miles to cover in a short period of time!  

We had a really hard time finding a hotel on Monday night (everything was completely booked) so we ended up spending a night in our truck.  That was... uncomfortable! Literally the second we drove into Oregon we found a Comfort Inn and slept... oh glorious, sleep.  We spent the rest of the afternoon  just lazing around our hotel room, catching up on Breaking Bad (not even visiting another country can keep me from my Walter White!), showering (oh, showering... I missed you so), and doing the oodles of laundry we had already accumulated.


Now that we've been in the US for few days I'm starting to notice some differences, especially in the food we eat! 

Alberta Beef - Being as how I hardly eat meat, I didn't even know that this was going to be an issue.  One taste of non-Alberta beef later, I miss the meat back home something fierce. 

Iced-Tea - literally just cold tea here.  I've debated adding sugar to my glass but feared the looks I might get.

Which brings me to coffee - I may or may not have a serious addiction to Tim Horton's which unfortunately can not be found in the US.  We finally found some great coffee at a waterfall when we first entered Oregon - and let me tell you, after going 3 days without anything even resembling a decent cup of coffee, angels sang from the sky the second the first sip touched my lips.  I immediately downed the coffee Marc had purchased and bought another one for the road.  We might have to visit this waterfall a few more times while we are here, but with a view like this I doubt that will be a problem.


Next on our list is finding a Dutch Brothers (which the uber helpful ladies at the front desk of our hotel told me is great coffee), or a Dunkin Donuts (that's got to be like Tim Horton's right?), and if all else fails, a Starbucks (I really love Pumpkin Spice Lattes, but Marc hates Starbucks with a passion). 

The next few days of our trip are what I am most excited about - the Oregon coast and the Pacific Coast highway.   I'm sure my next blog post will be nothing but pictures!   I am seriously in love with Oregon so far, I can't wait to see what else this beautiful state has to offer!
