Snapshots from our week long trip out west in June 2015 with my parents.
Fantastic trip. Highlights included: horseback riding in Zion National Park (a first for my parents), hiking in Bryce Canyon, scrambling to get to Antelope Canyon (because I remembered it from a Britney Spears music video), early morning yoga in Sedona, airplane tour of the Grand Canyon not to mention over 1200 miles in our rental. Also, did I mention it was over 110F everyday.. of course, it was a dry heat! 😉
We spent 5 days in Iceland in May 2015. We flew an Icelandic airline called Wow Air from Boston. It was significantly cheaper than flying Icelandic from JFK and we had the time. We met Aunt Holly (Bill’s Aunt) at the airport. It was a quick 5 hour flight to Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland and spent the five days driving along the southern coast of the volcanic island. I have a number of friends and family who had visited the country just before us and told us how beautiful it was. But I didn’t really understand that until we got there. Iceland is one of the most stunning places we had been to. There are no barriers or railings between us and the majestic waterfalls, glacial lagoons and steep drops into the ocean… we drove around 1500 km in our short trip there. The days were long with only 2 hours of twilight and no complete darkness.

We can’t wait to go back and explore the rest of the island sometime in the future.
We’re back. While this blog was initially started in 2013 to track our big trip, we’re continuing to have some pretty cool adventures; so we have decided to blog about our adventures over the last few years and continue to do so for our travels in the future. Most of the posts will be written by me with Bill agreeing to contribute around 20%-25% of our future blog posts. 🙂
There will be some catch-up posts over the next few days with highlights from our travels in 2014, 2015 and early 2016. Hope you enjoy our updates.
Sam & Bill.
