It's hot here, that's for sure. Nevertheless I do like Boulder a lot. I like how people walk and bike everywhere, which reminds me of home. And I'm glad that I never gave up looking over my shoulder before I make a right turn while riding my motorcycle. I like the hike and bike paths everywhere especially along the creek. And the creek itself. 100 degrees (40 Celsius) aren't as bad if you have some cold fresh water to jump into. Or just stick your feet or hands into. It's interesting that I don't even think of swimming anymore, every time I see a body of water or when it gets too hot outside. San Francisco hardly ever gets hot enough for you to have to cool down in a pool.

The city is small enough to walk everywhere and within minutes your in the mountains which makes it perfect for anyone who loves to be outdoors, run, hike, cycle, motorcycle, camp, etc. And in winter, all the skiing in the Rockies is right at your doorstep. I do have one complaint, though. Why do people here have to drown pasta in sauce?!?  

But of course, many people will want to live in a place like this. Especially people who love Drowned Pasta. And companies like Google and others have noticed this as well. So you can already see Teslas everywhere and the costs of living are on the rise. 

     Nederland. Just 20 minutes uphill.

Now I'm in Denver and about to check out for the weekend. I will continue my trip next Wednesday. And I've already planned each day until I get back to San Francisco. I have an estimated date of arrival! And I'm happy to know that I will be home in less than two weeks. But also a little scared because it means that I'll have to start figuring out what to do with my life next. Where to live and how to make a living. And I will have to adjust to normality again. Or do I? Who knows, maybe I'll be on the road again, soon. Or I'll enjoy a normal life. I will find out.
