    Happy National Park week – Park Post special!

    Happy National Park week everyone! This week (19-27 April) more than 400 national parks in the US are opening their doors for free. How I wish we’d live in the US so we could visit them all … we fell in love big time with the grand natural variety of the US National Parks during last year’s roadtrip. So even though we are not American, we’re going to share our favorite photos of the parks we have visited, in honor and with respect to natural beauty!

    Things to do in Denver

    Welcome to Colorado’s Mile High City – our favorite things to do in Denver Imagine being on a plane and seeing nothing but farmlands down below. You know the mountains have to be somewhere but yet they are nowhere in sight. The plane eventually lands and before you know it you’ve passed through security and are picking up your luggage. While signing the contract for the rental car (and making sure you DON’T sign for anything unwanted) you still wonder where those mountains are. By the time you are finally on the highway and sun is setting you see the skyscrapers of Denver appear. And in the back, the mountains…
