I did a trip to Colorado recently – I hung out a bit in Aspen (if you’re interested in Colorado at all, check out these posts I did when I went in the Fall: Psychics and Silver in Colorado, Mussels in the mountains, Charcuterie and Artisan Cheeseboard, Spring Water at 8,000ft, Fall Colors of Colorado, Steampunk bar in Aspen). The thrill for me is really in getting there – I had a stunning road trip through the rockies. The Evergreens were as gorgeous as ever – my quest was to showcase this breathtaking place to my brother who was visiting from South Africa. For the Skybok video you’re about to see (it’s only 1 minute), I used my iPhone 7 Plus on a DJI – Osmo Mobile Gimbal Stabilizer, which you can get at Best Buy! I HIGHLY recommend it!! On the website, search  “DJI – Osmo Mobile Gimbal Stabilizer”. They also have awesome drones which I was tempted to get for this because I was in the ski lift at one point with gorgeous views of the town 😉

Psychics + Silver in Colorado

I’m in Aspen, Colorado. The shops in Aspen are gorgeous, I love walking around taking photos of all the high-end stuff. They are so great to check out when no one else is around. When I travel, I like to get up as early as possible and catch the best light around town. It’s amazing to see the history of some of these buildings. They are still standing from the 1800s. They are so attractive!

Charcuterie + Artisan Cheese Board at 8,000 ft

Wok charred spicy edamame, shishito peppers, garlic + sesame with a charcuterie + artisan cheeseboard at “The Living Room” in Hotel Jerome, Aspen. The room is warm + toasty (excuse the pun), it lends itself well to warming you up after chilly adventure in the mountains! As it happened, we had just returned from visiting The Continental Divide, and I couldn’t get over the mystical feeling I had from the sights of the snowy mountains. What a thrill sipping red wine and nibbling from this cheeseboard in a magnificent lounge at 8,000 ft elevation!
