Having lived in warm, tropical regions throughout my life, this trip was a sort of life changing event. My boyfriend’s parents live in Minnesota and he had lived there for a good part of his life. So it was inevitable for a visit to the parents and to his childhood places. We had planned this trip last year for 4th of July but things didn’t pan out. However, what could be better than a white Christmas? So we did extensive planning and figured out this whole long vacation for me away from my polymer synthesis down in Georgia.
The trip was, to say the least, exhilarating and a completely new experience for me. I saw snow flurries and we stayed in through a snowstorm. Wow! I felt so lucky (despite what Minnesotans felt I am sure) to experience this whole new world where snow plows are in use at 4 am. This new world had snow on the cars while the people drove them.
To describe in better words I would leave it to my media gallery. I think I need a white winter trip every year from now on!
