In addition to hiking and running, we love to travel (it’s even better when we can combine travel with hiking or running). We’ve been to our fair share of countries in the world but are always looking to keep exploring more.
Thailand: Mid-March-Mid-April 2013; all the stars aligned for us to take a month abroad anywhere we wanted, so we chose an area of the world we’ve never been to, Southeast Asia, and let the planning begin once we arrived in Bangkok.
Europe: April and May 2012; a random smattering of touring Europe, Urbyville style, which means on the cheap and beyond the tourist norms.
Guatemala: February and March 2012; 6 weeks of one-on-one Spanish lessons in San Pedro La Laguna, Guatemala, living with a Guatemalan family and learning a lot more than just Spanish.[/mantra-column]
US Travel: We tend to visit a lot of family and friends in between big adventures, and we love to road trip, so that combination makes for a lot of US travel.
Mexico: October 2011; 3 weeks of pure bliss in Todos Santos, Mexico, near the Southern tip of Baja. Warm, sunny weather, miles of beaches, and good friends to spend the time with.
Life on a Bike: August 2011-September 2011; About 1600 miles from Portland, Oregon, down the coast all the way to the border of Mexico, and then 3 weeks in Mexico.
Ideas and Updates: As the name implies, some of our ideas, thoughts, and news that we thought was noteworthy enough to share with others.
