Denver had been high on my U.S. bucket list for a loooong time, particularly after I learned that it was only 2.5 hours away from Houston by plane. So when Derek and I spotted a great non-stop flight deal earlier this year, we knew we had to book it.
The problem? The trip was planned for mid-January…and as you may have gathered from my “travel destinations” page, I’ve got relatively minor experience with living in and/or traveling to cold places. Arid deserts, tropical islands, and sultry colonial towns with swaying palm trees are my jam…icy sidewalks, blustering winds and snow-covered landscapes? Not so much.
