Our travels, exploits, and adventures

Adventure update- lots of biking!

August 13, 2011

Greetings friends and family.  Its been a super busy couple of weeks continuing to get set up, get settled, and get to work here in Fort Collins.  Dondi and I have managed to find some fun things to do amongst all of the work and getting caught up.  Here is a quick run-down of some of the fun adventures we’ve had in the last couple weeks.

Old Town Fort Collins at night- a happening place

Old Town Farmer's Market- every Saturday from 8am -12pm

On our bikes again. . . the bike paths here get you pretty much anywhere you want to go

We made a spur-of -the-moment trip to Denver to accomplish 2 things- an American Society of Civil Engineers BBQ and to. . .

Replace this (an incredible uncomfortable air mattress topped with a sofa bed mattress). . .

With this! =) An eco-friendly soy-based foam mattress. The best part (for Dondi) is that I no longer complain all day about my broken back!

FYI- if you come visit, we no longer have the “back-breaking air mattress” pictured above so don’t worry!  We got you covered. . .  =)

We just had to see why on Earth people in Fort Collins were towing boats- so we did a nice 18 mile bike ride up to Horsetooth Resevoir and figured it out in a hurry! This beautiful 6.5 mile long lake is gorgeous.

We stopped at a rock outcropping on our way back down from Horsetooth Resevoir- the city of Fort Collins is behind us

Dinner at Nyali Ethiopian Cuisine in Fort Collins- if you've never had Ethiopian you are soooo missing out! The best part is you get to eat with injera bread and your fingers =)

Dondi and Erin at the Colorado State University Trial Garden in downtown Fort Collins

This one's for you Nana

Stopping at the Sculpture Part on the CSU campus

Au revoir, until next time!

  2. Thanks Anne! The city makes it so easy to get around on a bike. Its actually easier to bike to most places because you can hop on any of the bike paths or on the bike lane on the roads. Take care. =)

    I can’t believe you got rid of the cadillac model air mattress, it looks so inviting! Dude, married life is making you soft..lol just playing. Have fun you two.

    • Funny Shawn. Our goal was to beat your air mattress record! That we did. Mission accomplished! =)
