A Lil’ Jaunt to Guam

I’ve done a TON of traveling recently, but the most recent was aaaaaall the way to Guam to visit my aunt and attend her wedding there. Honestly, I’d barely heard of Guam until my aunt moved there last year. I hadn’t given it a thought . I ended up loving it. The island has some pretty fascinating, and sometimes sad, history. It is a territory of the United States and a pretty big American military base. The Chamorro people have a long and rich history and it is always interesting to see how that works with any current government.

Guam is a tiny island. Super far away from me. I flew there. It was far.

What a gorgeous island!! And amazing people. Before I left, I took the beginner’s motorcycle class with Team Oregon and passed with flying colors and walked away with my motorcycle endorsement. All this because I wanted to ride motorcycles with my aunt around Guam!. Which I did! It was amazing and fun and just rad all around!

My Aunt Nancy was insanely kind enough to ride her baby, a brand spanking new 1200 cc Harley

Yeah, I’m pretty damned badass. And look how safe!!

I was on that tiny island for a little over two weeks. Coincidentally, so was my beloved friend/Wifey Heidy. A lot of you will remember her from such adventures as:  Can’t go to cabo without a run in with the federales and Cabo in a Cave. And we simply can’t forget Dirty Hippie (otherwise known as failed attempts at road tripping across country in a VW bus). Oh wait. Also, Nanny Adventures. As you can see, Heidy is a pretty important part of my life. it was wonderful to have her there and have her meet a new branch of my family.

My SisCuz (cousin that is more of a little sister) and soon to be roomie, Roxy had been teaching English in some random city in China that we’ve all probably never heard of that has a population of, oh, 2 MILLION PEOPLE. So she was in Guam to be in her mom’s wedding. I was kinda blown away how such a tiny little island in the middle of the Pacific could so much awesomeness.
