(If you have no idea what I’m talking about, read this & this). We returned home a month ago and have missed it ever since. Read our posts about… Read more »

It’s another international trip, and again we’re traveling to Latin America for some active adventure.

3 Under-the-Radar Midwest Weekend Getaways {A Roundup!}

Wasn’t it just Christmas? Or at least New Year’s Eve? With a busy school schedule and the routine of working normal hours again, the holidays just keep on catching us off guard around here. Valentine’s Day is probably one of our least favorite. I honestly can’t remember if we’ve ever gotten each other actual presents… Read more »

Switchbacks Episode #15: Size Matters, ft. Death Valley & Wrangell-St. Elias

Welp, happy Tuesday guys! I’m hoping my day at school today is better than yesterday, because certain third graders did not get the memo to be tired and cooperative on post-Super Bowl Day.

Two Day Trips from Buenos Aires

During our one-week stopover in Buenos Aires, before heading to Patagonia, we wanted to maximize our time in this vibrant — and huge — South American capitol. We like visiting big cities occasionally, but we much prefer the quieter, less bustling, more outdoorsy vibe of the outskirts. While planning our week in Buenos Aires, we knew… Read more »

Switchbacks Episode #14: To the Overlook, and Beyond! (Ft. Petrified Forest and Bryce Canyon)

Surprise Switchbacks Episode #13: How to Find (and Be!) an Amazing Travel Partner

We have been so neglectful lately! Ever since we got home from Argentina last week, Cole has basically been on an airplane, bus, or in an Uber. It’s interview week, you guys! Until the dust settles and things go back to some semblance of a routine, things will be a little crazy. SO tonight, I… Read more »

One Week in Bariloche: Our Itinerary

After spending one week running all over Buenos Aires — visiting museums, historic neighborhoods, and monuments — Cole and I were more than ready to get some fresh air in the mountains of northern Patagonia. We flew from Buenos Aires to Bariloche through the Aeroparque Jorge Newbury Airport (different than their international airport where we… Read more »

Year of Disarray

It’s January 24th… perfect day to start thinking about New Year’s resolutions, right? Cole has never really been into setting resolutions for the new year, but I love the cyclical nature of starting fresh each January. I know that change can obviously happen throughout the rest of the year, but I do love using this… Read more »
