Guatemala Recap

Guatemala Recap

September 2017 Update — Still so far behind on the blog, but I will catch up with real time eventually! Life is starting to be back to normal here in Denver, but more on that later. First, lets talk about Guatemala…. ———————————————————————— We did not go in with many expectations in Guatemala. To be honest, we chose to go there because there were cheap Spanish classes and accommodations weren’t very expensive. We barely explored any of this country – we had…

Surfs Up in Mexico

Surfs Up in Mexico

We never expected to make it to Mexico anytime soon, but when we found out our good friends were going to be in Sayulita for a week in March so we made it happen! To be honest with you, I am not sure if it was our favorite place. Don’t misunderstand me – Sayulita is a pretty cool little place, but for us it seemed as if everything in town was only there because of the mass number of American…

Just a Taste of the US of A

Just a Taste of the US of A

We decided to head to Mexico to meet up with friends! Upon looking for plane tickets to get to Mexico we realized that getting to and from Mexico from anywhere in South or Central America was going to be really expensive. It was WAY cheaper to go to Mexico from the United States…so that is just what we decided to do! We passed through Miami, Florida for 4 nights to stay with Scott’s grandfather, Pops. It was amazing to be…

Colombia Recap

Colombia Recap

The soundtrack to Colombia is vibrant, loud, and catchy – there is music blaring from every shop, restaurant and around every corner. Fruit vendors selling mangos and pineapples litter the city. Seafood is abundant and you can buy ceviche almost anywhere. The vibe here is a mix of Caribbean and Latino. There was more poverty than I expected. To be honest, I am not sure if it was my favorite place in the world. I struggled to find the food…

Scott Taking Cool Photos in Cool Places

Scott Taking Cool Photos in Cool Places

This post is out of order and only has one theme: Scott taking photos around the world. While he photographed some of the world’s prettiest places, I had to practice being patient while I waited for him and in the process I took a ridiculous amount of photos of Scott taking photos. Also, if you haven’t noticed in some of the other posts his photos are REALLY good. Without further commentary, here are my favorites of Scott taking pictures in…

Patagonia

Patagonia

Oh, Patagonia. We sure do love this place. Our time in Patagonia was amazing and completely opposite of Buenos Aires — it is hard to believe they are in the same country. We stressed about our itinerary a lot….was it wrong to make it all the way to Patagonia and not do the W trek in Torres del Paine? Was it smart to go backpacking for 5 days when we had to rent all of the gear we might need – not only…

Way Down South in Argentina (& Uruguay)

Way Down South in Argentina (& Uruguay)

We went to Argentina in February. It is now June. Oops. I knew this would happen eventually, but I really wanted to stay up to date and stay in real time (which actually never happened). We have just returned home and have so much to catch up on the blog. We also have so much to process in terms of being home once again. I have no words to describe any of that yet. Until then I am going to…

12 Hours in Kuala Lumpur

12 Hours in Kuala Lumpur

Occasionally plans are made, wheels are set in motion and plane tickets are purchased that later make you stop and wonder ‘what the hell were we thinking?’. Granted, this doesn’t happen very often, but we’ve certainly come to realize the tendency to overestimate our travel stamina is very real. A few weeks of bouncing through English speaking countries, complete with all of the accoutrements of life back home, left us feeling refreshed and a bit overly confident. India was our…

Euro-trippin’ Part 2

Euro-trippin’ Part 2

This post is a continuation of my first post about our time in Europe! I can’t believe we almost skipped Europe on this trip. Maybe it was because it was the middle of winter, but it was not nearly as expensive as we thought it would be (which was the only reason we had decided to skip it anyway)! There is so much to see and do in Europe and we could have traveled there for a year and not…

Euro-trippin’ Part 1

Euro-trippin’ Part 1

There are endless ways to do a trip to Europe and quite honestly the options were overwhelming. There are so many spectacular places just a quick (and cheap) plane or train ride away – how do you choose where to go?? My parents planned a trip to meet us in Barcelona. Done. We had two weeks to make it from Dubai to Barcelona. Next time we make it to Europe I would love to get a Europass and ride the…
