I live in Denver. My family lives in Ohio. My best friends live all over the country and I have a job that requires moderate travel. Needless to say, I rack up a LOT of frequent flier miles and hotel points.
Here you can find highlights from my personal and work travels.
And below, you will find all Travel posts!
…loving the slow atmosphere of Whitefish, Montana.
…treasuring moments with faraway friends.
…wearing the crap out of my #findingwinter jacket. (Don’t make me give it back!!)
…devouring Into The Wild; unnerved by how much Alex Supertramp reminds me of my brother.
…Itching to read Into Thin Air next.
…FOCUSING on what come next and what it means to make it happen.
…snacking on Capt’n Crunch snacks (like Rice Crispy Snacks but with Capt’n Crunch).
…listening to Ratatat over and over.
…cheering friends who are starting new jobs.
…loving vacation time with my husband and friends.
Can life get any better?! I submit that it cannot!
I’ve been especially terrible about fitting in exercise while traveling the past few weeks. I always bring my workout gear when I travel and usually, I try to make time to run or hit the hotel gym for a quick hit. Unfortunately, my recent trips have included little more exercise than walking in airports or around cities.
While I spent 24 hours in Connecticut last week, my good friend Nancy sent me this Blogilates 100 workout. It’s quick and requires no equipment and not much space. Perfect for a hotel room and early East Coast mornings.
Shame on me for thinking this 5 minute video would be easy. It was not. But it gets your blood moving and definitely wakes ya up! Not much more you can ask for when on vacation or traveling – quick, easy body weight moves that require not much space. Win!
This past weekend, I went on my first legit, purely-for-fun road trip and ventured further south in a car than I’ve driven before! The only road trips I’ve ever done have been with the intention of getting from Point A … Continue reading
This is the last installment of my Boundary Waters canoe trip. Click here for Part 1 (Days 1-2) and Part 2 (Days 3-4). You know how it goes, early to bed, early to rise. I was the first person to … Continue reading
Picking up where we left off at the end of day 2 in the Boundary Waters! (Read Part 1 here.) Because of our drives (we all drove from Cincinnati, 14 hours, or Denver, 18.5 hours) and too much celebratory whiskey … Continue reading
Our trip was the best. The absolute, hands down, hard-to-beat best week ever. I’ve never laughed so hard for so many days in a row or slept so well in a tent. Canoeing was FUN. Like, really fun. Sometimes, backpacking … Continue reading
As we’ve been planning our Boundary Waters trip over the past months, I thought a lot about the 21st century and how AWESOME technology has been for our group. I mean, how did people plan an 18.5 hour drive and … Continue reading
Here’s something that snuck* up on me: I’m leaving in exactly 2 weeks to drive from Denver to the Boundary Waters in Minnesota for a week-long canoe trip! In a couple of Fridays, Alex and I will begin our trek … Continue reading
In the past few years, my mom has coined a term that describes a type of moment unique to her – and as I’m growing up, me too. They’re called ‘Sandy Moments.’ They’re like foot-in-mouth moments, act-before-you-think moments, not-reading-the-instructions-before-getting-started moments. … Continue reading
Last week marked my 4th year as a working woman. Not only that but 4 years as a working woman at the same company at my first post-college, full-time employment position. I’m currently in Tampa at the biggest event of … Continue reading
