Looking to Move Cities? Questions to Ask

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Denver has been voted time and time again as one of the best places to live in the United States. I’d by lying to you if I haven’t been on the bandwagon for the past couple of years, waxing poetic about this Colorado dreamland that I might someday move to. Then my grad school officemate from the very first day set about convincing me to move to Denver. Since that day, I’ve stayed at her family’s place twice (Hi, Becca!). So recently, I’ve been doing quite a bit of thinking about whether to put it on “the list” or not. I’ve written in the past that when I visit a place, my brain goes right to analyzing whether or not I would want to live there. Call it a case of itchy feet, a case of graduating in one month (exactly!), or a combination of the two…but that’s been the case for all of my travels in the past year. At least. So I thought it would be fun today to share what kind of questions I ask myself and see how Denver rank on the list.

Steps to Solo Travel: Adventures in Solo Dining

“Are you waiting for anybody else?"“…Nope! Just a table for one, please."

I first uttered that response during my “spring break” trip to Denver. I wasn’t traveling solo and, in fact, I was staying with a great friend and her family! I really had this restaurant I wanted to try and it wasn’t on anybody else’s agenda. But I heard some pretty fantastic things about the milkshakes here…so missing out was NOT an option. Simple solution: I went by myself!
