We did not have a whole lot planned for today. It is our last full day in Colorado, before flying out to New York in the morning. We first went out for breakfast to a nice little diner near Wesley's place in Fort Collins. I had an eggs florentine crepe which was really delicious! We then went past Walmart on our was home to try find some straps to make carrying all our gear a little easier. Between the two of us, we have an allowance of 4 checked bags, at 23kg each. Although this seems like a lot, when you are travelling for 5 weeks, skiing, hiking and camping, there is a lot of gear you need to take. Each of us has a ski bag and a suitcase, as well as a few carryon items. This makes lugging our big bags on public transport around cities very difficult! We had purchased a few things while in the USA, so we had a little extra weight than we did coming over. This meant when packing our bags, we had to try get each bag as close to 23kg as possible. It was quite a challenge, but we got there in the end. We spent most of the rest of the day, lazing around not doing a whole lot. We went out to a barbecue place in old town Fort Collins for dinner. It was really delicious. This was my first time going to old town Fort Collins. It is really nice, with fairy lights all through the trees, and even a little ice skating rink set up.
We got ice cream and then went back home. It was going to be an early morning the next morning, so it wasn't a very late night. Both Thomas and I really enjoyed our time in Colorado, and surrounding areas. We got to do, and see a heap of amazing things, with our great friend a cousin Wes! It going to be sad to say goodbye, but looking forward to the last few days in the big apple!
