Sometimes I get sick of teaching people how to squat correctly or convincing people that not benching 3x per week won’t start the Apocalypse.

Day 8: Goodbye Prague, Hello Oslo!

Day 8: Goodbye Prague, Hello Olso! Tony and I woke up and shot out of bed so we could pack up our bags, clean out the apartment, and head over to the airport. I had one last espresso from Bake Shop, and we both enjoyed our last bowl of Czech granola. We have loved our… Read more

Day 4: Prague Castle!

Day 3: Rain, Rain!

Day 3: Rain Rain! Today started off with a coffee machine mishap.
