My aunt Joan and I went to Pike's Peak in Colorado last month. It was a WONDERFUL day full of wandering around and freezing our butts off. Joan and I hopped onto the Cog Train and road to the top of the mountain. Upon our arrival, we were welcomed by clear blue skies and large [...]

The Times I Fell in Norway

The Times I Fell in Norway

I posted this gem on Instagram earlier today. http://instagram.com/p/wWwoTFKjtV/?modal=true It's another picture of me on the ground after having busted my butt in Norway.

Norway the Beautiful

Norway the Beautiful

Couch Surfing. Yea or Nay?

Couch Surfing. Yea or Nay?

My vote is nay. Let me tell you why. Sometimes it doesn’t work out. My Canadian friend and I were on a tight budget going to Norway, and we knew that Norway was one of the most expensive countries in the world. Best way to solve that? Stay for free! She and I spent days [...]
