Adventures in Pittsburgh and Hiking in West Virginia


Arjan stopped by for a few days as part of his “around the world” trip. He’s travelling the world for a year and lucky for us-blogging/taking fabulous photos along the way. Make sure you check out his blog- The Other Flying Dutchman. I can’t wait to read about his adventures. Especially, South America.

While he was here I go to do a lot of exploring/site seeing. We visited a small town in PA to see architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous Falling Water. The house was beautiful. It flowed and fit perfectly with it’s surroundings. Just as it was meant to.


While we were in the Pittsburgh area we walked around the strip district, met up with a friend of Arjan’s and had Primanti Brothers. I’ve been wanting to go to Primanti Brothers since I saw them featured on an episode of Man vs Food. Primanti bros is a sandwich shop that sells a variety of HUGE sandwich that include some awesome cole slaw and fries on the sandwich! I got a turkey and cheese and Arjan had some kinda of sausage deal.

He finished all of his and I almost made it. Almost! Definitely about 75% of it was devoured.

The next day was an outdoorsy day. We traveled to the southeast corner of West Virginia to visit Blackwater Falls Park. On the way there we randomly came across the smallest church in the U.S., Our Lady of Pines. It was adorable.

Once in the park, we did about 5 miles of hiking, explored some waterfalls and dangled our feet off of cliffs! Well, Arjan and I did. The bf is a bit afraid of heights.

I crossed something else off the list! #92-screaming fuck you to a few people off the top of a mountain. 🙂

It felt good 🙂
