If I’m honest, travel blogging just doesn’t appeal to me at this season of my life. All the same, I have these photos, sitting on my desktop asking to be shared, so here’s a quick recap. On the way home from Sedona, we decided it would be fun to take the long way and stop […]

Clear back in Slovakia, sometime in July, we bought a Christmas ornament and promised to give it away to one of our visitors when we got home. True to form, life on the home front has been a whirlwind, but all the while, the ornament has been tucked away waiting for a new owner. So […]

Monarch Migration

Monarch Migration

Making our way down south, we found ourselves in Natural Bridges State Park near Santa Cruz where 100,000 Monarch butterflies overwinter each year.  Bree has a few friends that live in the bay area, so we met Matt, Robyn, and their two kids at the park. The butterflies tend to cluster in the Eucalyptus grove […]

Half-Moon Bay

For our 5-year anniversary, Bree and I took a long weekend in San Francisco.  Enjoy a few shots from Half-Moon Bay.   We arrived just in time for the parking lot to close, but after finding some parking on the street made our way down to the beach just in time for sunset.

Ben: We packed up this morning knowing that the day might be a long one. After experiencing first hand all of the hills that surround Oslo and viewing the maze of streets on the map, we braced for the worst. We left our huge, overcrowded campground with a route that we had meticulously planned the […]

Making Plans (Sort Of)

Making Plans (Sort Of)

Posted on 0

If our first bike tour taught us anything, it was that worrying too much about making plans was taking more mental energy than it was saving. This time, we might be in for a different sort of problem. We haven’t made really any plans at all! So far, we are planning to fly into Athens […]

Between Christmas and the new year, we braved the intense winter weather and escaped to Teton National Park for some fresh air and nordic skiing. We had no plans except to ski, eat, and soak up the beautiful landscape. Teton is easily one of our favorite national parks, and we’d never seen it in the […]

Although I’ve never been much of an animal person, the little black cat that moved into our closet to raise her kittens truly stole my heart. Through the year, she won us over, trusting us to take care of her and her kittens, napping on our laps, licking our faces, constantly begging for a treat. […]

After my own birthday self-indulgence, Colton and Miara were brave enough to consent to camp with us again for their birthdays in October. Destination: Yellowstone. Last year, we camped over the same weekend in Teton National Park with beautiful weather, so I hadn’t even considered how cold it might get. As we headed north,we were […]

Beaches and Rivers

Beaches and Rivers

The next morning we decided some time at the beach was in order. We were completely unprepared for how beautiful the beaches in Olympic National Park are. Shoes off, we spent the entire morning walking the beach, looking for star fish, and running and jumping like kids in the sand.    After spending the morning […]

Hurricane Ridge

Hurricane Ridge

After catching a ferry back to Anacortes from the San Juan Islands, we decided that the next phase of our trip would be the exploration of the Olympic Peninsula.  Known for it’s beautiful mountains and rainforest, we set out in pursuit of yet another ferry which would drop us off in Port Townsend, Washington. My […]

Rainy Kayak

Rainy Kayak

The next morning we were slated to begin our two day kayak trip. Unfortunately, the first sound of the morning was rain pouring down on our tents. Ben and I normally deal with rain by staying snugly inside the tent until it lets up, but with an appointment to meet our kayaking guide, we packed […]
