• And So… Our African Adventure Begins!

    When we arrived in Cape Town Tuesday afternoon, a man from the VACorps (the internship company) picked us up from the airport. It was so strange to step outside and feel the heat of the sunshine, especially after our last stop in Switzerland and having come from the deep winter…

  • 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!…

  • Zurich Switzerland

    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…

  • Lanterns, Marrakesh, Morocco

    Memories in Marrakesh 

    Marrakesh, tourist capital of Morocco. After our excursion in the desert, we jumped on a bus, and for the next 11 hours, winded our way to the city! On our way to the city, our bus stopped in a little town for lunch, and we couldn’t find an ATM, so we…

  • Camel Trek, Merzouga, Sahara Desert, Morocco

    The Calm After the Storm

    The rain had stopped, the clouds hovered motionless above us in the desert sky, and there was no breeze. The sky was completely calm. The sun had gone down hours before we laid down in our tents, but the temperature was still boiling. It felt like someone had turned off…

  • 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…

  • Door, Fes, Morocco

    Fes

    Morocco……sounds exotic, right?! It does to me, and it was our first time to Africa! We wanted to see historical architecture and design and experience traditional Moroccan culture so we stayed inside the medina, the older part of the city. We came by bus and arrived in Fes late in…
