Weekend Wonderment: French Friends Come to Visit

Virginie, my husband Chase, Me, Regis

I am not sure how many of you remember when I lived in Peru and went on a 3-day boat ride down the Amazon River.  Well, if you want to read more about it go {here}.  And if you want to see more photos of when I lived and traveled Peru go {here}.

So while my husband and I were on this boat we got to know the couple in the hammocks next to us quite well.  Regis and Virginie are from France and have been traveling South and North America since last September.  (Yes over a year of traveling!).  They are coming to stay with my husband and I for the weekend!  Isn't that exciting!?  I will report next week on how it goes!  

If you were visiting Salt Lake City, UT for the first time what would you want to experience?  
Food?  Sites?  Nature?  Adventure?

Hope your visit is fantabulous. I think if I'd been traveling for a year I'd be most excited about a comfy bed and warm hospitality (which I'm certain you'll provide).

Utah is so beautiful & you do "adventure" so well it seems that I'd include some of that!!

Leaving the House in THIS?!?!
