Denver is a great place to have an extended layover. We’ve been here for three days now, trying to recharge our batteries and relax and see some sights. Our first sights were primarily the inside of shops, lots of lovely American shops. Our luggage is in Minneapolis and we are in Denver so some shopping was inevitable. And after a year or so in New Zealand where choice is limited and prices are sky high, it was mind blowing to find great winter jackets for the kids on sale for $20. Delicious.
Call me shallow, but it was so very, very good to go and have a cup of coffee and a cake in Barnes and Noble’s, then let the kids hang out in the children’s section for an hour. Just like the olden days. We feel like we’re home, America feels right and it feels good.
Alas we can’t stay in a hotel forever, although it would be quite lovely for a wee while longer. We need to get on with finding a place to lay our (many, new) hats and call home. Currently we’re thinking Portland, Maine looks good, and we’re looking for a property finding miracle.
We have to check out tomorrow so we will have to make some decisions today. We are booked on a flight to Chicago mid-afternoon. We may or may not get on that flight, but we do need to track down our bags. Maybe we should stay on the west side of the country until the bitter winter storms ease up everywhere else… Decisions, decisions.
One foot in front of the other. It’s all good.
