I'm lucky to be able to travel while I'm old enough to enjoy and appreciate what is around me and young enough to be able to walk and walk and walk and walk. 

Where have I been?

  • Great Britain (I studied in Swansea, Wales for one semester)
  • France
  • Germany (I went to Oktoberfest!)
  • Switzerland
  • Hawaii (Kauai and Hawaii)
  • Cancun, Mexico

I've seen most of the western United States from the seat of a car.

It might be a small list, but I think I'm pretty lucky! My favorite place? It's a total toss-up between Kauai and London.  Two VERY different places!

October 2001:  Our honeymoon in Hawaii!

May 2002:  We went to Cancun with the Bierbaum family.

June 2002:  We went to Okoboji with the Schultz family.

New Years 2003:  Celebrated New Year's Eve in Las Vegas!!

May 2003:  Allen and I went to Zurich, Switzerland for one of his conferences.  We then made a vacation out of it - we spent time in Luzern, and then flew to the UK, rented a car and drove north to the Lake District.  After 3 days of driving around, we went back to London and spent 2 days walking around in beautiful sunshine and WARM weather! (Who knew London could get that hot?!)

June 2003:  We went to Okoboji for our yearly trip with the Schultz family.

June 2004: Another yearly trip to Okoboji.

August 2004: Allen and I spent some alone time in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area!!  Here is a journal and some pictures from the trip.

January 2005: The Bierbaum clan went skiing in Colorado.  Breckenridge, Keystone, and a day in Vail.  All in all a VERY good time - I even skied a few blues!

June 2005: Is there any surprise here?  A trip to Okoboji - the MSBS Vacation!

August 2005: Rocky Mountain National Park!

January 2006:  Skiing in Colorado!  Again!  This skiing mostly blues.

June 2006:  Okoboji -- this time with the Bierbaum clan!

September 2006: Okoboji again -- this time for our 5 year anniversary!
