Eating SNAILS in Denver?

Yep.  You read right.  While in Denver, we had the pleasure of reuniting with one of our best friends from our time in St. Louis, Zoe, from the travel/food blog Hungry Wanderlust.  Zoe is a wonderfully talented cook and is always more than happy to prepare and share meals with friends.  While perusing the local Asian Market for ingredients for Vietnamese Pancakes, we came across some "live snails".   Read more

Free Day at the Denver Botanic Gardens

As often as possible, we tend to look for free things to do. Well, it turns out we had good timing this time around in Denver. The Denver Botanic Gardens just so happened to have a FREE ADMISSION DAY! We packed up our camera and our friend Steve and headed for the gardens. We found the Gardens to be a nice place to take a stroll for the evening and imagined it'd be a great place to have a picnic or simply sit and read while enjoying the surrounding plant life. Meisha had a good time taking a few black and white photos as we walked around the Botanic Gardens, so naturally, we decided to share them with you here. Read more

Mile High CouchSurfing and Other Shenanigans

The freeway carries on it's familiar hum as we descend from the Rocky Mountains into the Denver valley. We find ourselves in a road-coma as we begin the physical and mental recovery from the last 3 days of brain-melting bass music and craziness at the Sonic Bloom electronic music festival.

Upon breaching the city barrier, we decide to pull over, find a park and further develop our plans of reanimation. While driving towards the nearest park, Meisha's nose suddenly begins to gush blood. We frantically grab any visible absorbent materials and pull over to assess the situation. Meisha's nose has never been a fan of dramatic altitude changes and doesn't seem to appreciate the drop from 10,000 to 5,000 feet.

This little incident is finally enough to convince us to do the unthinkable.

Van Living vs. Hotels - Realizations and Thoughts

I can't complain about having the ability to shower and swim in a pool, but I'm just not sure it was worth $60. I fund myself back in the familiar setting of a hotel room mimicking as close to an average home as possible. Does this really put travelers at ease when away from their comfort zone?  I understand the point of a hotel when on business or travel of specific reasons i.e. a funeral.

For myself, the van has become a comfortable living space and a hotel can be overly luxurious. I came to the conclusion that I'd rather spend that money on a new experience rather than revert back to those simple comforts.
