Hey, hey. Long time, no post. Life’s been a bit of a whirlwind as of late; I’ll explain in due time (when I have time to catch up).
We’re always on the hunt for bargain flights to places we’ve never been. Over Easter weekend, we decided to celebrate with a quick trip to the desert since tickets from Knoxville were under 275.
I felt like my feet fit in there.
The first day of our trip was spent exploring within the city limits. We visited the oober-trendy, ec0-friendly Sparkroot Cafe for a mid-morning (lunch-time with the time change) pick-me-up. We moseyed down 4th Avenue and visited University Ave, and the University of Arizona campus. A library visit was had! Hard to go in a library without snooping. In the afternoon, we headed back toward our hostel (Roadrunner Hostel–great, clean, cheap place), and stopped at Hotel Congress for some refreshments. Can’t remember why Hotel Congress sounds familiar? John Dillinger’s capture, my friends. After showering, we headed out to eat some Mexican nearby. I should have taken photos of the courtyard, which seemed festive and authentic, but I had a blogger fail. Still, I hope you enjoy photos from our day in Tucson.
The Friday of our visit was very low key. Saturday was a bit busier, especially as far as photography was concerned. I’ll be back soon with a few posts of desert landscapes from that day.
Happy start to the work week.
