3rd Annual Cocoa Beach Uncorked

Florida Travel

We drank, we ate, we did our ancestors proud! Sorry, reference from the first Thor film. Sidenote: I saw Avengers: Endgame last night following Cocoa Beach Uncorked, so not only am I suffering from an amazing food coma, but my brain is also on information overload. Don’t worry, I’m not going to give away any spoilers. Except for that Cocoa Beach Uncorked is an event not to be missed. Imagine sinking your toes in the sand as the ocean waves crash…

U-Pick Season in Florida at Southern Hill Farms

Florida Food Orlando Travel

Tis the U-Pick season in Florida! Driving down the backroads, the signs all point to fresh fruits ready for picking. I’m a newbie to the whole fruit picking scene, so I get overly excited by the concept. My overflowing fridge will prove that. This past weekend, we went to Southern Hill Farms for blueberries, peaches and flowers. This was my third time at Southern Hill Farms and as always such an enjoyable experience. Before we went to work picking our…

Day Trip from Amsterdam

Europe Travel

After three days of exploring Amsterdam, we decided to rent a car and take a day trip to some nearby towns. It’s incredible how easy it is to get around by foot in Amsterdam and across the Netherlands by car. It’s a surprisingly small country. TIP: Just beware of driving in Amsterdam. I’d recommend finding a rental car business close to the highway, outside of the actual city, as maneuvering around all the bikes and through small alleyways can be quite…

Happens to me all too often, but now I’ve discovered the perfect travel souvenir: Flytographer. I was first introduced to Flytographer when I received a photo shoot as a wedding present. It made the perfect souvenir for our honeymoon in Paris. I…

Oak Haven Farms U-Pick Strawberries

Florida Orlando Travel

This adventure was a little less strenuous than most of my weekend trips around Florida but no less fun. Oak Haven Farms provides a relaxing atmosphere and absolutely beautiful scenery. The perfect setting for strawberry picking.  It was my first time picking strawberries and such a great weekend activity close to Orlando. The farm was not overly crowded which is something I tend to worry about whenever we do something in or around the Central Florida area. It’s the Disney…

Clear Bottom Kayaking with Florida Manatees

Florida State Parks Travel

It’s manatee season in Florida again. What does that mean exactly? Well, I’m glad you asked. When the temperatures drop, the river and ocean waters cool down causing manatees to seek the warmer waters of the Florida Springs. A few years ago, I went swimming with manatees in Crystal River. I would love to do it again someday, but this time I opted for the dryer adventure, at least it was supposed to be. Weekend Adventures We don’t tend to…
