Month 43

Note: Whoops, looks like I lied when I said I'd soon be caught up on posting roundups. But we are almost there, I swear! Sorry for any confusion my lazy posting has caused! . Month 44 found me back on the go after a nice stretch at home for the holidays. I eased back into life…

Miami Sightseeing Flight

Let me just preface this by saying that I didn't mean to become the blogger obsessed with air tours. It just kind of happened. It all started many take-offs ago in Las Vegas, when I decided an aerial view of the city's neon lights would be the perfect birthday kick-off. Then came Hawaii, where the only…

Miami Culinary Tours

I'm very proudly not a foodie (though I do need to write an update to my now somewhat out-of-date post declaring so), but I do love to eat. No matter where I am in the world, excitedly planning my meals for the day is one of the first things I do when I wake up in…

There's just something about Miami. The more I travel, both domestically and abroad, the more I've come to appreciate this great big backyard of mine -- and while there are many places within the fifty states that tug at my heartstrings, in just two visits Miami has easily climbed the ranks of favorites.

But then, suddenly, luck dropped a much better idea in my lap. Enterprise contacted me about joining…

Weeki Wachee

Guys. I am here today not with a flippant travel tale, but with a serious, significant public service announcement to share. Science and society have lied to you for too long, and I am here to set the record straight. Mermaids are real. I arrived in Tampa, Florida, as I have so many other times throughout…

Next Stop Florida

For some reason, Florida doesn't have the most exciting reputation as a travel destination. I never really understand why -- the weather is amazing, natural wonders abound, and there are some pretty fantastic cities dotting those endless coastlines. Over two and a half weeks this January, I'd discover even more reasons to get excited about the…
