This past weekend I took a short trip to Denver with my cuzzie, Ca, for our annual trip together! Last year it was New York. As usual, we always have fun together! It helps that we have the same mindset, go with the flow, up for anything, or doing nothing and just relaxing. We also booked our hotel and car rental the very day we were there too! Now that’s go with the flow! Took the train from the airport to Union Station in Denver. And it was there we had our first lunch at the Mercantile inside the Union Station. It was also where we had one of the best braised short ribs sandwich of our life! One where we will remember and talk about when we’re old and sharing our favorite travel memories. 🙂 After that walked around Larimer Square, 16th Street Mall and since there is an Aveda Institute there, we had to scheduled a spa appointment! Yes, “had to”…at that price you just have to goooooo. We lucked out the first day because we also had a super delicious meal at the The Republic, a wood oven pizza place with delicious thin pizza with amazing fresh ingredients! Duck confit, with figs and other stuff. Toasted mushroom ravioli and flourless chocolate cake completed this yummylicious meal. I promised you won’t be disappointed. The first night we stayed at Grand Hyatt in downtown Denver. The next morning we had an early start for our hike to the Rocky Mountain! There was still snow in some part of the trails. Here we are at the start of the hike!
Beautiful place. Lots of steps. I need to train more…I say that every single time. 🙂 And do I ever do something about it? Nope!
Drove to the cute little town of Boulder next! Not much to say about the place lol. If we had more time, we probably explore more. Headed back to Denver and for our last night we stayed at The Crawford Hotel, right in the Union Station. Beautiful hotel with free ice cream, coffee, and free rides with the Tesla! Enough said!
My most favorite place in all of Denver has to be this place right here. The Union Station. I wished we came out here at 2am and took pictures with no one around since we stayed upstairs. So convenient. But, next time, right?!
This is such a great place to read and write, or just chill. I can imagine coming here for creative lunch meetings which I saw many professionals did. We all wished for it, don’t we? A place that we can just let our mind wander. A safe sanctuary for all the madness in the world. We are all the same in that respect. Carving out our niche in this life. Wanting to be heard. To be remember. Train station. Speak of travels. Of Adventure. Of Meeting our Loved Ones. Saying Adieu. It has always been my prefer way to travel! Til next time, friends! I hope you a world of peace and happiness in all that you do!
