By now you know that we are Disney obsessed! But believe it or not, this was our first time back since the 50th Anniversary Celebration, which began on October 1st, 2021.That’s because as much as we love Disney we really dislike heavy crowds, so we decided to wait out the excitement a little bit and just enjoy it in January when Mark runs his first Disney Marathon. Well, then life kept kicking us around, sadness leaked in and a bit of a rut took over so as any great husband does – he got on the My Disney Experience App and started making reservations!
This is a fun one! When you often pass an epic looking place on I-4 near Tampa, FL that has giant dinosaur statues along the highway and looks a bit like a vintage tourist trap… plus you have friends that are as obsessed with Dinosaurs as you are – Dinosaur World is a must stop adventure!
Mark and I were both born and raised in Ohio but we high tailed it out of there in 2015 and swore we would never look back at cold dreary weather. Each of us have made small trips back, but mostly for sad reasons (losses in the family) and not at all since the pandemic started. I’m ashamed to say I hadn’t seen my in-laws in over 4 years and had never even met my sweet little nephew – it was weighing on me… then my family experienced two more sudden losses this year – so I said enough was enough, life is too short, and we bought Allegiant non-stops flights to Toledo to spend a couple of days with Mark’s family before it truly gets Northern Ohio cold!
Here’s another #FlashbackFriday for you! Last year we had an amazing trip to the Florida Keys for Christmas 2020 and enjoyed unplugging for a few days. Like everyone in the world, the year 2020 proved to be an extremely tiring year with too many changes and hurdles to count. That’s why we, along with our favorite travel buddies, decided to escape for a long weekend to celebrate Christmas in the Florida Keys. While this year has also proved to be equally difficult if not more so… I thought it was time for some reminiscing…
Our 2019 trip to Caye Caulker and Cayo, San Ignacio Belize was magic! As we get ready for another visit this November in a post-covid world, walk down memory lane with us!
Mark and I have been Walt Disney World Annual Passholders since 2016. I had been to Magic Kingdom as a young child, and once to Epcot in my early 20s and loved it, but Mark had never been and I’ve always wanted to show him the childlike magic that he missed as a kid. HisContinue reading “Did COVID ruin our Disney Magic?”
I had the adventure of a lifetime. My first ever international trip was with 18 amazing people to 3 different national parks and the Taj Mahal for 12 days in India!
Mark and I hadn’t taken any time off or traveled since Sept 2019…. we’ve cancelled two trips for 2020 and like everyone else during this pandemic we’ve become sad, sluggish, anxious and overwhelmed. That’s until some dear friends/co workers reached out to see if we were up for a camping birthday adventure just a coupleContinue reading “Flagler Beach Escape”
The irony of starting a travel/adventure blog during a pandemic is not lost on us. Feeling stir crazy and overwhelmed during these unprecedented times has us day dreaming even harder than we did before. Even though we will be sharing a lot of archive photos and stories for awhile, we still have so much hopeContinue reading “Where do we want to go?”
I had the adventure of a lifetime. My first ever international trip was with 18 amazing people to 3 different national parks and the Taj Mahal for 12 days in India!
