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…

Amsterdam, in Photos

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,…

The Next Adventure

The Next Adventure

One thing we’ve come to realize as we travel is that every city has a distinct personality. Usually, we can tell within a few hours if the city we’re in is somewhere we would want to spend more time (though, let’s be honest, it’s Europe, I always want to spend more time). There are the places I’d love to visit again, or the places I feel that we only just discovered. And then there are the cities you enter where…

As you might recall, one of my 2017 resolutions was to cook more.
