Hello and happy travel Thursday!! I am SO SO excited I am flying out to SOUTH AFRICA today!
I am equally as nervous, too. I haven’t been sleeping much the past few days for fear of the flight, the length of it (17 hours! Eep!), plus work stuff I had to take care of prior to leaving. But I am pumped, (almost) all packed, and ready for a once-in-a-lifetime experience my friend and I have been planning for over a year!!
I wanted to do a bit of a mixed post today- what I have been LOVING and some travel workouts I can do during my down time from safariing 🙂 <—no red squiggle? safariing is a word!!)
I don’t really love Starbucks coffee- I feel it always tastes kind of burnt- but I LOVE foam from a cappuccino! This was my best foamy one yet! I asked for as much foam as he could fill the cup- and he delivered! It was 3/4 foam and fantastic! I happily ‘ate’ my coffee at my desk – perfect start to my last day at work!
Whenever I see/hear about a new froyo place, I have to try it. I mean, this inner demon screams inside my head “MUST GET FROYO!!” So I stopped at Lava Yogurt for a quick pick me up. In the mix- vanilla, cappuccino, and pistachio! It definitely hit the spot and tamed the froyo beast…for now 🙂 Wonder if they have froyo in South Africa?!
This was an impulse purchase at Trader Joes. What a find! DARK chocolate with cookie dough filling?? Yowza it was awesome!
I made Tina’s cheesy brussels sprouts and chicken recipe, but used grilled chicken instead of sausage and added broccoli and asparagus. It was mighty tasty, even if the bf yelled about not liking brussels like a 2 year old the whole time 🙂
Switching gears- I always try to get in a couple workouts while on vacation, and I really really wanted to attend a WOD at Crossfit Urban Shack in Johannesburg, South Africa. Unfortunately, the timing won’t work, so I have a few Crossfit inspired travel WODs I plan to do!
All of these are courtesy of fellow Crossfit lover Tina at Carrot’s n Cake. All these WODs can be done in the hotel room or outside- I hope I can do some burpees with the Zebras!!
Welp, I am off to finish some last minute travel
panicking packing! Stayed tuned next week- I have some guest posts from Michelle, Karen, Alex and Alicia planned for you that you won’t want to miss!! Thank you ladies for guest posting while I am away!
Have a fabulous weekend and next week everyone! I will drop in to say hi if I can get signal near the elephants 🙂
Rock on Lovers! What are some of your favorite at-home/travel workouts? Any exciting trips coming up?
