Day 1: 04/02/16 , Saturday
Hello everyone! 🙂 *waves* If you have been following me on my Twitter (@xokittykatrina) or my Instagram (@kittykatrina) you know that Daniel and I went to Aspen for a weekend beginning of April, it was our 1st time!!! *giggles* We were super stoked! I didn’t get to take as much pictures or videos as I planned to since I was too busy enjoying it and keep forgetting about my camera in my bag. Lol but here are some pictures I’ve taken during our stay.
It was a pretty fast travel or at least it felt like it since we were up at 4am for our 6:30am flight. We all KO’ed throughout the whole thing. lol. Since our day is already filled with activities, we had to get more sleep. I was super excited when i saw the mountains covered in snow during landing. The Aspen airport was pretty small.. i mean the whole town is small. i was thrilled to know that everything was walking distance.. well almost everything is. First stop was to get our snowboarding pants and jackets and everything else from SAGA Outerwear. Then Snow Mobiling!! YAY!!!! =D
We went to T-Lazy-7 for our Snowmobile tour with lunch!!!! woooohoooooo! fun, food and amazing scenery!!! Sooo uhmm.. it was my 1st time riding a snowmobile and i was so nervous i thought i was gonna die. lol i was driving slower than how fast everyone wants to go. My little arms couldn’t hold that thing to go straight and the rough road doesn’t make it easy. My arms and hands got a super good workout i tell you. lol It was soooo worth it tho. I had an amazing time. If you ever visit Aspen make sure you add snowmobiling on the to-do-list. Check out their website for more info. http://www.tlazy7.com/snowmobile-tours/
Our lunch stop! for Burger and chips and salsa! A super cute little cottage. ugh.. it was so pretty i could stay there forever. 🙂 The birds keeps coming near us. You’ll see most of the footage of this trip on my vlog coming real soon!
After the tour we met up with friends for dinner and drinks at the bottom of the slopes where they have restaurant / bar. Everyone gathers after snowboarding or skiing. It was a super tiring but super fun day. Went back our hotel to shower and nap before any night time activities. We stayed at The Sky Hotel ( http://www.theskyhotel.com/ ). It was such a cute hotel. Outdoor pool and Jacuzzi. Beneath it is a the gym and the snowboarding gear rentals. It also 5 mins walking distance from the slopes. AND…. they take dogs! You know.. everyone seems to LOVEEEE dogs in Aspen! Everyone has one! i love it!!!!
After napping after dinner. We didn’t wake up till 11pm and were hungry and we need water. You need to drink lots of water so we don’t get a headache. Daniel and i walked to the gas station which was only 15mins away walking. I love it. Everything was so close and Aspen is so beautiful at night. I’m inlove! And everyone is just so sweet and friendly. i mean.. i almost wanna live here. hahaha
Day 2: 04/03/16 , Sunday
Its snowboarding day!!!! woooooooooooooooo!!!!! We went to Buttermilk Mountain cause they have a less intense slope. ha! jokes on me. I ended up all the waaaaaaaaaayyyyyy to the top TOP!!!! i thought i was never gonna make it down. i mean… i did maybe half way… on my ass… -_- i was in so much pain from falling that i took the lift down.. i swear the mountain was gonna close and i would still be not even half way down if i kept going. *shrug*
Morning cuddles with Ryder, Rocket and Foxy. Goodluck hugs for me before i die on the slopes. hahaha.
Since MaryJane is legal in Aspen. You can just walk in and get some. lol. I don’t know what it was.. but the satisfaction of just walking in not needing your mjcard is mmmmm! lol
at last Sushi fo dinner! ❤
Day 3: 04/04/16
Leaving Aspen today. Walked to Starbucks to get breakfast and get an Aspen mug for my collection. (Last year when i visited Boston for the 1st time Daniel’s sister in law gave me a Starbucks Boston mug. I like it so much i started collecting Starbucks mugs from places i visited.)
Goodbyes in the lobby… *sobs*
So umm… since there wasn’t a direct flight from Aspen to LAX.. we took a prop plane from Aspen to Denver airport. Holy cow…. the most exciting and scariest time of my life. eeeeeekkkk! The plane was sooooooo tiny! it sits 5! Five people including the pilot. Although the view was beyond beautiful… i was way to sick to appreciate it. i was trying my hardest not to throw up.. lmao. Motion sickness for the win! …….not. -_- I got off the plane and my knees were shaking… hahaha. i took videos. ill be including it in mu vlog.
and now Denver to LAX!
the end. lol
i have tons of clips from this trip. ill be editing them and putting them together for my vlog so watch out for it. 🙂 Also i promise to take better pictures. lol.
