The Last of the Epic Road Trip

Well...this is the last post of the epic road trip. I'm pretty sad it's over. We are selling Maude the Mercedes this week. It's going to be a sad day...she was like the third lady on our road trip!

This last set of pictures is from Michigan. Elise and I met up with the lovely Andrea of Blonde Bedhead in Lansing. She took us to a fun breakfast place, Mama Bear’s which we loved because of the local food and delicious pancakes. She told us to check out the university which was great advice. We had fun running through the wooded campus and even went in to the library and looked up old dissertations from the 60s. Ok...I admit it, I'm a huge library dork. I guess that's what you get from being a total bookaholic. (Which sounds way more badass than bookworm, obviously.)

Lansing

I bought this outfit at the Urban Outfitters in Toronto after having the overwhelming urge to burn my tiny amount of clothes that I brought with me because I have worn the same thing Every. Single. Day.

Lansing

After Lansing we went for a swim in beautiful Lake Michigan and checked out the town of Three Oaks, which was having a small music festival. I found a rare copy of Diane di Prima's Kerhonkson Journal at a bookstore there and nearly died with happiness. The town is very progressive and I found the contrast between the richly decorated storefronts and the decaying buildings striking. Elise got a bit sick of me taking pictures of all of the ivy and brick that we passed!

Elise was really excited about the piggy meat inside the butcher.

I was more excited about the piggies outside.

We had some amazing flatbread pizza from a travelling brick oven.
