Where We Have Been - Travelogue

About This Blog

The best adventures are sometimes the ones that surprise you.

You can check out my full travelogue by clicking here! 2017 was a whirlwind of adventures across the world. My boyfriend Don and I met in Thailand, roadtripped across the US, and then lived in Paris and Prague for the first part of this year. Follow along as I share and learn by subscribing to my channel on YouTube!

 

Short Story: We met at a dive bar in Seattle in 2015 and exchanged numbers–but it took two years, one Facebook post, and a strong desire to escape half way around the world to connect. Don was traveling solo in Southeast Asia and I clearly needed an excuse to drop everything in Seattle and meet him in Thailand. So that's exactly what we did!

After traveling together for two weeks, we left each other to explore other countries on our own. (Don went to Iceland to shoot the Northern Lights while I flew to Nepal to hike to Everest Base Camp) We met back up in California and the rest fell into place.

backpacking 101 tips and places to adventure
 
Hiking to Grinnell Glacier Twice in Glacier National Park

Hiking Grinnell Glacier... Twice.

Yep. After 13 miles of exquisite beauty in bear country, AKA Glacier National Park we got back to our camp at Many Glacier and realized that Don's phone was nowhere to be found. So day 2 we went up again. But at least there is a good story behind it.

What we've been up to - Backpacking Tuck and Robin Lakes

Backpacking Tuck & Robin Lakes 

There is nothing like summers in Washington State! Don came back in August and we packed in as many adventures as we could, starting with hiking 16 miles into the backcountry in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness at Tuck and Robin Lakes.

Meet ME in Phuket HE SAID

I was living in Seattle at the time. He was traveling solo in Southeast Asia. I saw his Facebook post asking for a travel partner and a week later I was on a one-way flight to Phuket, Thailand. No cell service + an interesting cab ride for 800 thb I had arrived!
