The powerful Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau, has been engrained in New Orleans history since the early 1800s, and she facilitated the rise of the still thriving voodoo culture of New Orleans. The practice of voodoo has African roots and is believed to have originated during the slave trade, when the slaves participated in spiritual practices to ease their oppression. Marie Laveau became a symbol of...

Walking around Nederland, we were recommended to check out Mud Lake, one of the many hiking trails in the area. There was a small dirt road leading to the trail that we actually drove right past the first time, so this was not a trail that is easy to stumble upon. This is a relaxing hike, as the trails are easy and very short (only about 2...

There is a small town about a 17 miles southwest of Boulder located up in the mountains with colorful buildings and plenty of nearby hiking trails. Just about the entire half hour drive is on winding mountain roads, which makes for a nice, scenic route.

Every few months, BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse hosts a beer tasting, each time with a different theme. As you may remember from my Colorado Eats post, Brandon and I were big fans of this place after we tried it for the first...

A few years ago, I started blogging as a way to document my travels, and maybe share it with my family and friends. Little did I know, it would turn into something entirely larger than I ever could have imagined. Recently, I decided it was finally time to take my blog to the next level and move to a self hosted page. Basically, this means...

I wake up to the peaks of the Flatirons, less than a mile west, complementing the Rocky Mountains in the background. I go on runs every day around the beautiful CU Boulder campus. I live in a city with 300 days of sunshine, 146 miles of preserved hiking trails, and over 300 miles of dedicated bikeways. Why would I ever want to be anywhere else? Before I get...

This week I’m joining in on the Fresh Face Friday bloghop link-up with We Took The Road Less Traveled, and the two lovely co-hosts Slightly Astray and A Tale of Wanderlust. This week’s topic is “3 irrational fears.” I could probably go on for quite a while with these… but I stuck to the top three that are the strongest. I’d love to hear yours...
