The trip recap continues!  The day after the big party, we decided to take a little road trip to our favorite Italian border town, Susa. Originally founded by the Gauls, Susa eventually became a part of the Roman Empire, and remains of the Roman city are still found in the town’s central square. It’s small and charming, and one of our favorite places to visit in Italy. Oh, and it’s only an hour’s drive from […]

As I mentioned, last week was Peter and Jenna’s wedding in Billings, MT. We happily made the trek through Wyoming, going through only one major storm on the way ☺ It was so bad, everyone was stopped on the side of the road, and I literally couldn’t see the hood of the car at one point (sooooo scary!). Once it passed, though, we were on the road again! We made it in pretty good time, and […]

One of the coolest parts of visiting New Mexico is getting to see our good friend, Judy.Judy is an amazing woman – she’s traveled absolutely everywhere, is full of belly-laugh-inducing anecdotes, and makes a mean lamb roast. But all of that pales in comparison to her house…er, I mean, ship. In case you haven’t heard of them, earthships are a ‘ …unique type of passive solar house that is made of both natural and recycled […]

Saturday, we played tourist. After a quick breakfast on the road, we drove to Santa Fe. Littered with art galleries, street markets, and vibrant flowers, Santa Fe has been a Legendary Trading Center for hundreds of years. In the 19th century, traders used the Santa Fe Trail to bring goods to the southwest. Today, Santa Fe continues to give visitors and residents access to art, furs, jewelry, pottery, carpets, and more. We spent the afternoon window shopping, totally […]

Our first day on the road was…interesting, to say the least! We left for Walsenburg Thursday evening, and made it there by midnight. The next day, after a luxurious sleep in (well, I slept in. My parents were far more productive), we headed into town for a quick breakfast before continuing on the road. ^^nectar of the Gods, right there. Without too much trouble, we found a diner, but our appetites were slightly thrown off […]

Happy Monday! I’m back from a wonderful, restful, and energizing weekend in New Mexico with my parents. They leave the US tomorrow, and since I work full-time, I didn’t really get to spend all that much time with them. When they invited me to join them for an impromptu road trip to Taos and Santa Fe, I quickly requested a day off from work, and off we went! I’ll do a proper re-cap of our […]
