A few weeks ago, my mother and I embarked on a cross-country road-trip to move me back West after my graduation from William and Mary. Driving across the country was no small undertaking but it gave me a chance to reflect upon my college experience and mentally prepare for the first steps into adult life before the craziness of the holidays. Condensing four years worth of stuff into the back of my car was not easy- in fact, the car was packed in such a way that my mother and I couldn’t even adjust our seats. The hours on I-40 were dreary, to say the least, but we hit a few spots along the way that made the trip worth it. We spent a few hours on the Blue Ridge Parkway, stopped at the Biltmore Estate (beautifully decorated for Christmas) in Asheville, North Carolina, and had some amazing barbecue in Amarillo, Texas. My favorite stop, however, was at Monroe’s in Albuquerque, New Mexico where I had some of the best enchiladas of my life. I’ve included pictures of some of my favorites sites from the road.
