For the first post in our series "A Trip from the Past" we are featuring the first we trip together without our families. The year was 2009 and we were freshmen at the University of Utah. We drove through Las Vegas, spent the night with family, and headed out to Los Angeles to visit Sam's brother. The trip also took us up to Santa Barbara where we visited an old childhood friend. During this trip we started learning some tips and tricks to surviving a road trip with your best friend.
We spent a day in Vegas walking around the strip and seeing the sights before we headed to Los Angeles the next morning.
October in Santa Monica was not as warm as we expected. The beach was cold, rainy and free of tourists.
Luckily we ran into warmer weather in Santa Barbara and had some time to enjoy the beach.
And thank goodness our photography skills have improved since we were 18...
