True Life: I Went on a Cross Country Road Trip with a Rabbit

Although I got back from this road trip over a month ago, I still think it’s a story worth telling, am I right? Better late than never!

I flew out to the beautiful San Diego to visit my pretty sister and help her pack. She was relocating to Norfolk, VA so this is how the road trip extravaganza came about.

As you can see, several pit stops, La Quintas, smoothie bowls, ridiculous comments and ten mugs later, we finally made it from the west coast to the east coast; from sea to shining sea. San Diego, CA —-> Norfolk, VA.

OHHHHH and yes, we did travel this 14 state long journey with a huuuuuuge rabbit named Elaine 🙂 La Quinta’s allowed pets so we literally stayed there all but once on our journey.

We had plenty of parsley, spinach, and cilantro to keep her occupied the whole trip. The looks we got moving her in and out of the hotels were priceless, especially since it took the both of us to carry her cage!

***Sorry for how long it took to post this! I thought about blogging while on the trip and breaking up every couple days or so into a post, but it wasn’t feasible for me.  Plus I wanted to enjoy every second of it instead of worrying about documenting everything! However I did try and document some of my travels on Instagram, Twitter, snap chat (hannahhh62), and Facebook. I’m still trying to get the hang of this blogging thing***
