On the road to The Big Easy — Day one

We left this morning in a state of blurry-eyed excitement. Our trip today would take us 7.5 hours closer to our final destination New Orleans.

Finding the adventurer in all of us

Another year has passed with this crazy, nature-loving adventurer. I’m still here, I still don’t like hiking, and I still want to go on more adventures. Tobias asked me to write a few words about this last year and the next year to come. Since I am new to blogging and I’m not sure how […]

What a year – Adventure Bent turns one

What a wild ride this first year back at blogging has been. Today the Adventure Bent celebrates its first anniversary. It’s kind of hard to believe it’s already been that long. It seems like just yesterday I was clicking publish on the first post. “Hello world,” I wrote. “Welcome to the Adventure Bent blog.” In […]
