From the moment we stepped off the plane with views of the mountains in the distance and the smell of the tropical air I was smitten with this city. Even during the winter season the air was warm and humid
Happy Monday Lovely! A few weeks ago my parents came for their second annual Denver spring visit and since Pikes Peak was still covered in snow (which meant we couldn't drive to the top) we decided to visit Seven Falls in Colorado Springs. Despite having been to Colorado Springs a handful of times since living in Denver, I had not yet had the opportunity to visit.
I've had a road bike since college, which has served me quite well over the years, and managed to get me through the crazy Minnesota weather and two triathlons and has moved with me from Wisconsin to Texas, then back to Wisconsin and finally to Colorado
Hi dear friend! Today I'm going to dive into our time in Beijing! We packed so much into just a few days, from city markets to iconic historical sites. Beijing is a very vibrant and busy city with what seemed to be never ending "rush hour" traffic. A city where crossing the street is a game of survival of the fittest (more on that below!) Our taxi driver from the airport drove us to our darling hotel which was tucked in the tiniest alley lined with cars on either side. I had to close my eyes on multiple occasions as we narrowly passed pedestrians and commuters on pedal bikes in the alley.
