My trip to Aspen, CO

TweetThis last weekend, I took my Mom up to Aspen, which is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves the little boutique (read: expensive) shops, the luxury hotels, and the amazing restaurants. Personally, I would rather go to Steamboat because it’s more my speed (read: cheaper), and I like the people a bit better. I can’t imagine living in Aspen, as it’s so remote, impossible to get to by plane unless you want to spend a fortune, and it takes about 4 hours to get to the closest airport. But I love my Mom, and she wanted to go for her birthday, so I had to grant her request. There is one thing about Aspen that I love, and that’s the mountains. There’s more hiking trails than you can shake a stick at, and the ski resort is so well done that you can really get anything you want there. We stayed in a beautiful┬ácondo at The Crestwood Condos, which was right on the foot of Aspen Snowmass Mountain. As close as this was to the mountain, I was very surprised that it was so cheap to stay there for the weekend, considering this was Aspen. You can see what’s so good about Aspen in the video.

Travelling within the US

TweetSometimes I’m asked if I travel frequently within the United States. The answer is of course a resounding ‘YES’, but I don’t get talk too much about it because most of my friends and family have been every single place I have been here in America, so it’s not as exciting to talk about. Nevertheless, there are some amazing places to travel within the US, and I’ll get into talking about them in some future posts. One place I travel frequently to, because I love the mountains, is Colorado. The natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains is almost indescribable, something you really have to see to believe. I love to hike and backpack, not just all over the world, but hiking, backpacking, and camping is what I grew up doing with my family. We like hiking all over Colorado because there is so much that you can see, and you would need a lifetime to cover it all. There’s over 50 14,000 foot tall mountains that you could scale (don’t try to hike those unless you do a little bit of research before hand about what it takes to scale a 14’er!), and each one of them has something special about it. While I said initially that I wouldn’t go into too great a detail about my travels in the […]
