• We moved…… to South Africa!

    Last Friday was my last day at 3form and Monday was Rob’s last day at Stryde…we quit our jobs, sold what we could, filled the back of a sprinter van with the rest and stored it in Mom and Dad Spangenberg’s storage unit, packed our bags, and boarded a plane!…

    Cape Town or Bust!

    Getting to South Africa was no quick trip, and that’s probably a huge understatement…ha ha! There is a lot to consider when you are flying internationally. You have to look at all of your options. For starters, we didn’t even fly out of Salt Lake to get to Cape Town.…

  • San Francisco…What a Treat!

    We left Utah Saturday January 14th in the afternoon and flew to San Francisco, California. Our international flight was scheduled to fly out from San Francisco the following night at 7:25pm. We spent Saturday evening with Rob’s cute mom (who he affectionately calls Momanator) and cute sister’s Sarah and Lindsey,…

  • Sunshine

    Scattering Sunshine :)

    I had a thought today I wanted to put down on paper… We can’t do everything for everybody, but, we can do something for somebody! I sometimes get overwhelmed with all of the things I think about and want to do for people to show them I care. Today this…

  • Dreamy Bryce Canyon

    I have wanted to experience Bryce Canyon ever since I moved to Utah and Rob hadn’t been since he was a kid…So, kind of spontaneously I suggested that we take a last camping trip for the season in late October. We had had an unseasonably long, warm summer so I…

  • Merzouga, Sahara Desert, Morocco

    Storm in the Sahara

    Along the way we saw monkeys, visited a popular park with a fountain and a lion statue, picked up a hitchhiker, tasted fresh figs for the first time, saw the contrast of barren desert roads and deep green oasis’s, sweated out every ounce of sweat we owned, took pictures, and…

  • Chefchaouen, Morocco

    Chefchaouen: The Blue City

    We arrived in Tangier, in northern Morocco, by plane late Thursday night. I am not sure how, but somehow we survived the ride from the airport to our hostel. Our taxi driver skillfully, and I mean very skillfully, maneuvered the car up, up and up the steep, EXTREMELY narrow streets staggered…

  • Scooterin’ Around Sintra

    The jet lag was hitting us hardcore on day two in Lisbon. We’d planned to get up early to enjoy a full day in Sintra, which is about an hour train ride from Lisbon, but we were barely waking up and staggering out of bed around 10:30. We didn’t leave…

  • Lisbon’s Little Secret… Pasteis de Nata

    The next day we left Madrid and flew to Lisbon, Portugal via Iberia Airlines. We quickly learned that the proper name is Lisboa. We fell in love with the brightly colored buildings, the historical architecture, and the food! When in Portugal you have to try “pasteis de nata” which means…

    Travel Bug!

    In 2016 we did a little bit of traveling and each time we take a trip it just propels our desire to see more of the world! We’ve got the travel bug! Back in August of 2015 we bought tickets to go to the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio De…
