Flashback Friday: Leaving the Country/Layover in Egypt

Flashback Friday is a picture series where we “flashback” to some of our memories – from either from our prior travel or from home. We hope you’ll enjoy some of our remembrances!

One year ago today we left the country. We left our home in CO on June 29th, but had the opportunity to spend a few days with Della’s uncle in New York state.  Then we headed abroad! We were pretty excited to have found a plane ticket with a long layover in Cairo – long enough for us to leave the airport and explore the pyramids! Talk about an exciting first day on the road!

Flashback Friday: Leaving on our World Trip

Well – So, it’s not Friday… But, still, we thought this was a flashback worth having. One year ago today, we left Denver on one of the biggest adventures of our lives. We packed up super early and headed to the airport both excited about and terrified of what awaited us. Looking back, we feel so much pride in what we managed to do in this last year. For the most part, it was a collection of fantastic memories: one amazing experience after another. We’re already hoping and planning we can another trip like this again someday!

Look at our fresh (also tired because it was way too early in the morning) faces: ready for adventure! Here we come, World!

Flashback Friday: Carlsbad Caverns

Recently (you’ll read about it soon) we visited a large cave in Vietnam. It got us thinking about another amazing, large cave that we have visited together. On Spring Break of 2010, we drove down to Big Bend in Texas to meet Eric’s family. While on the way, we took a stop at the famous Carlsbad Caverns. This is truly one of the most magnificent caves that one can visit!

Tomorrow we celebrate Eric’s 32nd birthday! We thought we would flashback to one of Eric’s birthdays a long time back. This picture is from his party 2001 with the Dallas crew of friends. This was his senior year of highschool.

So, this week is Spring Break for Della’s colleagues back home, so we are remembering some of our spring break trips! The first trip that Eric and Della did together as a couple was spring break of our senior year, 2005. We took several of our friends and drove to Colorado to do some skiing. Our first stop though, was at a super underrated destination in southern CO called the Great Sand Dunes!

March is Beer Bike month! What is Beer Bike you ask? Well check out this post to learn more. In short, it’s a yearly event at our alma mater that we both really enjoyed. Eric served on the pit crew for many years and Della was a biker, chugger, and coordinator of the event over time! It’s always fun to reminisce about our college days!

Flashback Friday: Winter Rendezvous!

If we were at home, we would have been planning and enjoying the 4th Annual Winter Rendezvous at our cabin during March. So, we thought we’d flashback to the very first Winter Rendezvous! This occurred in 2011. It is nice for us to see some pictures of snow while we are sweltering in 100 degree heat here in Bangkok and off the chart humidity. Oh snow, how we miss thee!
