New in June 2015 – DENVER

Well, hello! I can’t believe how long it’s been. Summer swallowed me up and has just spit me out. It’s been an awesome season so far – I took a weekend trip to Santa Fe, my sister and parents visited, as did a friend from Sweden, and I went camping in CO for the first time. Many of these weekends and adventures fit themselves nicely into New in June, and while it was a bit of a challenge, I did it – 30 new things in June!

Being new to Denver, the easiest things to try were new restaurants and coffee shops, but I experiences a fair amount of other places and things. It’s funny though, because while there is a lot to do here, there is a certain uniqueness that’s found in San Francisco, that I haven’t found yet here… the secret stair cases, hidden mountain slides, and things of the sort. I’m sure all in due time I’ll discover some Denver gems too, but this year I was just happy to do my 30 new things and continue to explore this city.
