  • great ocean road

    During our trip to Australia we took a few days and did a mini road trip down the Great Ocean Road, a famous 151 mile route that follows the southeastern coast of Australia.  It felt sort of like an Australian version of driving US Route 101 around the Olympic Peninsula.  The route is filled with…

    After a weekend in Sydney we took a plane back to Melbourne where we would spend the remaining week and a half of our trip (sans a trip down the Great Ocean Road).  We stayed with Tay’s friend, Jess, and her family in Wantirna, a suburb of Melbourne close to the Dandenong Mountain Ranges.  Tay…

    For those of you who don’t know, Tay grew up moving back and forth between Australia and America.  Her dad is from here and her mom is from Australia.  After we got married we saw a pretty good deal on tickets and decided we should go.  I had never been so we thought it would…

    After our week in Utah we drove down through Arizona and Nevada to southern California to go to Disneyland.  Las Vegas happened to be on the way and I had never been, other than a quick layover in the airport earlier in the year.  We took a quick detour off the freeway so I could…

    Six months after Tay and I started dating we went on our first trip together.  We went to California to shoot a friend’s wedding and made time to go to Disneyland while we were there.  It’s one of our favorite places in the world so it was awesome getting to go there together for the…

    Last year Tay and I had been planning to go to Disneyland for our anniversary sometime in September but didn’t have any firm plans yet.  When her aunt called us and asked if we’d be willing to house sit for a week in September at their place in Ogden, Utah we decided it was the…

    We rolled away from London just as the weather turned from hot and sunny to cool and rainy.  This continued when we got to Brighton and during the last few days of our trip.  We met up with our friend Kristina who moved to England from Seattle a few years ago.  She let us crash…

    After an awesome few days in Paris we hopped on a train for London.  It was a short ride though the French countryside before plunging below the English Channel on our way to the UK.  When we arrived we immediately noticed a difference in the subway system.  Everything was clean, orderly, and easy to follow. …

    While we were in Paris we had to take the opportunity to visit Disneyland Paris (formerly known as Euro Disney Resort).  It’s only a half hour ride on the metro from the center of the city so we had to go.  We both love Disneyland in Anaheim but have never been to any of the…

    About a month after we got back from Denmark and Sweden Tay found another great deal on tickets.  This time it was to Paris in May, just another month away, so we decided to go ahead with honeymoon round two!  Paris would have been awesome enough on its own, but since London was a fairly…

    After spending a few days in Copenhagen we hopped on a train to Stockholm.  Copenhagen is right on the border between Denmark and Sweden which are separated by a seven mile wide straight.  Normally a large section of a bridge like this would need to be a tall suspension bridge or drawbridge to allow ships…

    When Tay and I got married a year and a half ago we had originally planned to go on a honeymoon but didn’t know where.  With all the craziness of planning the wedding and figuring out where to live, any thought of a trip got pushed to the side.  Even so, we still wanted to…
