New York, New York. (aka, end of tour.)

We arrived in New York City the day the Giants were honored for winning the Super Bowl. Jenevieve managed to park the bus near the parade route. It was insane, to say the least.

It’s been almost two weeks since we ended our tour in New York. I think I’m just starting to process everything we did and saw while on the road. Every day felt like four, and it’s really hard to wrap my head around the fact that it really was only three weeks. I met some incredible people and made some wonderful friends [whom I miss a lot already] along the way.

More photos from the adventure to come. Be excited.

Two words: Bus. Tour.

I’ve been working on the Americans Elect “Crash the Party” bus tour since mid-January, so the ignoring of my blog is unintentional. It was a last minute assignment, and so far, worth every moment. We only have a few days left. I’m sad. I mean – I’m happy to be heading home soon and getting back to real life, but tour life is pretty darn sweet, too. The people I’ve been living and traveling with for the last (almost) three weeks are fantastic, and I am very happy to have met them in this way. If nothing else, these new friends are wonderful.

This frame was one of my favorites from the Gasparilla Festival in Tampa, Florida. Think Mardi Gras on a smaller scale and full of pirates. We were so out of place there, and yet, so perfectly placed. While this is a typical scene for the tour of people signing up to learn more about AE, these kids were likely wasted. Almost all of the people we met that day were wasted.

Long live the pirate. Or whatever they’re dressed as.
