Tom + Zara's Travels

New York

Some piccies from our first day out in NY and Williamsburg (the first day being spent in bed hungover and Tommy running to the Chinese to fetch scran). Crazily Imppu was in town shooting an ad for Maybelline so we got to hang out for an hour before heading doooowwwnnnntowwwwn for a wander about! Love love love NY.

We’ve arrived in New York yeahhhhhhhhy!

Our last day/night together.
We packed up our bags and said our farewells to the log cabin and made the (shortish) journey from FairPlay to Denver where we wandered around a shopping mall for a little while then headed to Bass Pro - a HUGE shop selling anything and everything outdoors. Including guns.
The Englishness in us shone through as we shied away from the real deal instead happily settling for laser guns where we played at the Shoot n Range.

After all of the excitement of shooing at stuffed squirrels and bears etc we sat watching the huge fish in the fish tank for a while.

We then had to leave Tezza and Jeanie at or hotel whilst me and Tom drove to the other side of Denver to meet up with David and Rachel - a really sweet couple that we met in New Zealand at Little River campground back in March - our first ever night sleeping in our campervan, Barnaby.

We headed to Spicy Basil for some Thai food and had a great evening catching up, comparing travel notes, swapping stories and generally having a good giggle. We wish we could have had more time in Denver to hang out with them more. Thanks for a great evening you guys - make sure you come visit us in England soon.

This morning, Terry and Jean dropped off at Denver airport - unfortunate that our flight was leaving before theirs. After some emotional goodbyes, we made our way through the doors to catch our flight to New York whilst they fly back to London later this evening.

It’s been a fantastic 4 weeks together - we have stayed in some unique places from airstreams to log cabins, experienced all kinds of weather conditions (dessert heat, hail, showers and SNOW) and seen some wonderful things. We have had a ball.

Thank you so much for coming out to visit us you pair we miss you lots already!

We’ve just spent an amazing 7 nights at a beautiful mountain lodge in FairPlay, Colorado. We arrived to snow which kept falling for a few days and settled allowing us to go for a few walks through the surrounding forests looking for bears, mountain lions and elks.

We didn’t spot anything unfortunately but we were able to watch 5 elks graze on the grass outside of our cabin once the snow melted. We also got to see two of the stags rutting with one another which was incredible.

We celebrated Toms 31st birthday in the cabin too and had a trip out to FairPlay - which is where South Park is based on. It’s a lovely little old town with lots of character.

Our time in the cabin was just incredible. I’ll always remember the stunning views of the mountains as I pulled back the curtains Every morning. What a perfect way to end our four week holiday with Terry and Jean.
