2018: Resolutions and Plans

2018: Resolutions and Plans

Hi all and happy new year, it’s Katarina here. The way I figure it, we can say that throughout January, which is pretty much a dark, rubbish month, so why not start greetings with something cheerful? After all, we survived the first year of a terrible racist president in office. We can and will overcome, and we deserve our bit of hope. 2018 finds us cozy in our little flat in London, chilling with our cats. We’ve had a bit…

In October, after running a half marathon in Paris Disney, we went to Ireland to explore the scenic countryside. This week, we take a look at our first two stops, Shannon and Doolin, including the famous cliffs of Moher. That it for this week. Come back next week for photos from the rest of trip! ~ Colin

This last May, we spent approximately 24 hours exploring Barcelona. Follow along in some of our pictures below! (Since Katarina is busy writing for National Novel Writing Month – 26,000 words and counting – we’re going picture heavy for November). Enjoy! That’s all for today! ~ Katarina and Colin

Finishing a Half Marathon (When Everyone Thinks You Can’t)

Finishing a Half Marathon (When Everyone Thinks You Can’t)

On September 24, 2017, in Paris, Colin and I crossed the finish line of our first half marathon. It was a feeling of triumph unmatched to anything I’ve ever felt. Mostly because I knew I was proving people wrong as I crossed that line, tears in my eyes, cheered on by Mickey Mouse (I did mention it was Disneyland Paris, right?) Yes, I finished a half marathon, and I did it while fat. I have never been skinny. I haven’t…

Settling In

Hello hello! Welcome back to our blog! We know it’s been a while, but we are back and ready to rock! The most important update, of course, is that we are safely in London (and as of yesterday, we have internet)! After a whirlwind in the beginning of July, in which Katarina flew to London briefly to interview for (and got!) a job while Colin finished up work, we both went to California to relax with family. We took a…

Quick Moving Update

Quick Moving Update

Hey all! Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but life has been more chaotic that we initially thought it would be. We’ve been busy buying boxes, selling furniture, and trying to cram in last minute visits to some of our favorite places. I (Katarina) finished up work on June 23, and I’ve since been packing up a storm and watching This Is Us and crying. Oh, and applying for jobs. In fact, I’m headed out at 4 in the…

Lately, we’ve really ramped up our training for the 2017 Paris Disney 1/2 Marathon. This year, my little brother is joining us and we’re all going to Ireland together! However, as I thought back, I couldn’t help but miss the four days we spent last fall in Amsterdam with my older sister. It’s a beautiful time of year and a really unique and lovely city. We stayed in a houseboat, visited Anne Frank’s house, and saw some incredible museums. So,…
