Dolo-MITE *part 2*

Dolo-MITE *part 2*

  Dolo-MITE *PART 2* We had a roundabout hike path ti start day 4 to avoid a massive drop-off of elevation right at the huts edge. This plus our final plans for the day made it a long and imposing hike for our group. We happily/luckily met up with Kees and Luuk at a pass about 2 hours in and hiked down together to the next valley which took us out of the wild mountains and back to the tourist…

Dolo-MITE!

Dolo-MITE!

  Dolo-MITE (days 1-3) We started our hiking journey by taking 2 trains, first from Nice, FR to Milan, and secondly from Milan to Brixen (aka Bressanone). Mostly uneventful with a few notes: An exceptional Italian seafood restaurant steps away from our Airbnb in Milan- complete with a hilarious joke cracking Asian waiter. Brixen being a beautiful little hamlet with charming architecture, fountains, and shop fronts in an idyllic riverside valley setting. Brixen disappointing us by having ONLY pizza restaurants,…

France once again

France once again

France – #Duex June absolutely flew by and Europe was just a few sunsets away! We hightailed it to NYC to spend a day or two with Cousin Danielle and Paul before hopping on the plane. Funny enough, not only were Danielle and Paul on our same flight, but so was my brother, Niko and cousins Natasha, John and baby Christos! We hung out in the lounge for a few hours leading up to the flight and overdosed on Lournadunes….

Back to the Burgh!

Back to the Burgh!

  Back to the Burgh! Back to the Burgh! We spent the last 2 weeks in Pittsburgh. We kicked it off with a couple days with Rob’s Aunt Vicki, which was a great time. She has a pretty wooded path near her house, where we went on a long walk with her pup Sydney. There was so much wildlife on the hike, we saw EIGHT deer – one doe that let me walk almost arms length away from it and…

On the Road Again

On the Road Again

  On the Road Again… And we’re off! Day 1 of 146… They days leading up to leaving were pretty chaotic so I don’t think either of us had a moment to let the excitement settle over us until we got in the car. We started off pretty uneventful – driving about 5 hours to middle of nowhere Kentucky where we caught up with Andy and Amanda at the luxurious La Quinta hotel! The next day we tackled the rest…

One Dollar You Pay!!

One Dollar You Pay!!

Matt and Kyle- Chapter 3: Things could not have gone any better in Thailand for the four of us, but it was unfortunately time to move on to our next destination. After 45 days there ourselves (about 9 for Matt and Kyle) we were crossing the border to Cambodia. Before the trip planning I could have told you absolutely nothing about Cambodia. Truthfully, I thought it was in Africa. But it is the site of the ancient Angkor Wat temple,…

Wallarag – town in Australia or made up word?

Wallarag – town in Australia or made up word?

Our next stop was so spectacular that we adjusted our plans within minutes of arriving to have two days here. Wilson’s Promnotory was beautiful from the second we pulled in. We were pretty beat after a long day of driving so after we set up camp we took a nice long nap under the hot sun on the beach. We woke up at dusk and thought it was the perfect time to take a walk along the freshwater stream that…
