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.
If you have been following us for a little while you may know we absolutely adore our pup, Banner, an Alaskan Malamute. Some people say he is a bit large (only 115 pounds!), but he is a big fluff ball with lots of energy. He seems to absolutely love the Colorado weather, and never turns down … Continue reading Elk Meadow Off Leash Dog Park
Hello Beautiful Friends! I really just can't believe it's been over a month since we got back from our trip to Asia! We took 16 days to travel to Japan + China + Thailand! It was an absolute whirlwind + getting back to "reality" was quite the feat! This is the first to a four part series all about our experiences, with (hopefully) some useful tips + tricks that you can utilize if you find yourself traveling to any of these fantastic places!
It's been a long standing joke that we always do something big for my birthday, whether it be a big trip (Seattle and Oregon a few years ago, and most recently our trip to ASIA! blog posts to come on this!), our engagement on my birthday in 2014, or a fancy dinner with family and … Continue reading Above the Clouds: A Birthday Celebration
Don't get me wrong, we LOVE traveling and exploring new places (I mean obviously, this is a blog dedicated to wayfaring!), however sometimes it's refreshing to put on a new lens and simply spend time in our own city! To make things a bit more interesting (and add a bit of exercise) we took to … Continue reading Exploring Denver: Bike and Brunch
If it's one thing I have learned so far, it's that Colorado has a seemingly endless amount of outdoor adventures. After boarding at Snowmass in Aspen last March and seeing a tiny glimpse of the surrounding beauty, I knew we had to return for a camping trip in the warmer months to see one of … Continue reading Exploring Colorado: Maroon Bells
Today I am going to delve into our first (two) experiences with 14ers in Colorado. An endeavor I won't likely quickly forget! For those of you wondering a "14er" or "fourteener" is a mountain peak that exceeds 14,000 feet. Colorado is home to 58 of these amazing and beautiful mountains! During prime climbing times locals … Continue reading Exploring Colorado: Our first 14ers
What We Ate: Ballard Avenue, Seattle, Washington Yes, you read that right, I'm doing a whole post ALL about FOOD! I'm not sure when it happened or where it came from, but I REALLY like finding good eats. I eat portioned healthy meals 99% of the time, but if you ask any one of our … Continue reading What We Ate: Seattle, WA
Oh sweet, sweet, Vancouver, you beautiful city you! Oh how I adore the PNW with it's moody weather, gorgeous views, and delicious food. We jetted off from Denver to Seattle where we spent the evening eating our way through the Ballard Avenue district, before making the 2 hour 30 minute drive to Vancouver. We decided … Continue reading Vancouver, B.C. in 72 hours
