8 Ways to Get the Most Out of One Day in LEGOLAND Florida
December 18, 2016

It was our first time going to LEGOLAND Florida and we only had one day as we were also heading to other theme parks and were packing everything into one long weekend!  I had heard a lot about what to expect, so when I got there I thought I was prepared. But nothing can prepare you for this Lego wonderland.  It is a Lego lover's dream! If you haven't experienced anything Lego, you are about to get your socks knocked off!  My kids were in heaven. So we had to have a plan on what to pack in one day. They have an awesome water park but it was closed on the day we went, which was good in a way because we wouldn't have had time to truly …

4 Reasons to Visit the BOATHOUSE® in Disney Springs.™
November 16, 2016

I received a complimentary dining experience to facilitate this article.  All opinions are my own. We are the typical Florida family who likes to frequent the theme parks at least once a year.  But we have requirements for ourselves too.  It's not all about the kids as this trip is an escape from our busy lives also. We always stay close to Disney Springs™ to have access to it whenever we want.  In the last year, they have made some major renovations which gives us even more reason to visit! One of the things we enjoy the most when visiting Disney Springs™ is discovering restaurants. We found one that blew us away and have made it our number one priority to visit every time we go to Disney …

5 Things to do to Prepare for a Road Trip
November 10, 2016

  We had been planning this trip to Orlando for months.  We were so excited!  We bought a new car a few months ago with the idea of going on road trips, so it had to be big.  With two boys, ages two and five, the future is filled with all kinds of adventures, and those adventures require a lot of room! I've always been a last minute kind of gal, thriving on the pressure of getting stuff done when I'm backed into a corner. The thing is that we had never been on a road trip until then.  Yes, we went to Orlando, but it doesn't feel like a road trip when you're crammed into a small SUV with barely any space for water and strollers. This time was …

Conversations With a Fathom Traveler
November 8, 2016

This is a Sponsored Post for Fathom Cruises.  All opinions are my own. Cruises are the best place to meet new people. There is such a variety of personalities that you are sure to hit it off with someone on the ship. And it helps that everyone's in a good mood because they're on vacation. This being my second Fathom Cruise, I was a little more aware of the people around me and not just the beautiful ship, The Adonia. As I went on guided tours and traveled on the buses I sat next to a lot of people. There was one gentleman that spiked my curiosity. He was snapping away with his camera. Every time I saw him he was taking pictures. It was like his camera …

6 Reasons to Stay at Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Disney Springs™ Resort Area
November 2, 2016

I received a complimentary stay at the Wyndham Resort to facilitate my review, however, all opinions are my own. We aren't too fussy about the hotels that we stay at but we do have some standards, especially since we are traveling with two kids under the age of five.   We don't need luxury, per se, because the kids can't appreciate it, but we do need specific things that people without kids might not consider. When we checked into the Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Disney Springs™ Hotel, we knew that it had gone under major renovations. I knew that it was now two hotels but I didn't have anything to compare it to because we had never stayed there.  The first impression is huge with me and …

5 Reasons Why Impact Travel Changed My Life
August 11, 2016

When I went on the Fathom cruise, I expected to be involved in something different; something that would change the way I viewed the world.  I have been blessed to have been able to travel quite a bit in my life, and I love traveling.  Growing up with family in Europe and modeling afforded me that. Twenty years ago, I went to the Dominican Republic.  I was working as a model in Miami Beach and got a job to be involved in a commercial that would be filmed there. It was all very glamorous, being flown there with a bunch of young models, and then driven to a luxury resort where we would stay for about five days to shoot the video.  I was twenty-five and …

Everglades Holiday Park
August 2, 2016

Living in Florida for twenty years, you'd think I would have seen an alligator by now, but no, I haven't and neither has my family.  So we were excited to go to Everglades Holiday Park and check out the gators!  Plus, it is home to the to the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue, featured on Animal Planet's hit show. We went there on a Sunday morning and picked up our tickets for the AirBoat Tour.  It was just a few minutes until they called our number and we walked down to the port where the boats are waiting for us.  The tour boats depart every twenty minutes so you don't get stuck standing out in the heat for long. Before we stepped on the boat, we had our free …

Confessions Of A Tourist In Puerto Plata
July 28, 2016

Have you ever gotten yourself into a situation and thought, "how did this happen?" I have a past life as a model and bartender so um...ya.  No one needs to know the war stories, but yes, I got myself into some sticky situations.  And it was usually too late to get myself out of them! So fast forward twenty five years and now I am a wife and a mother to two boys. I have to say that the wildest Friday night I have had recently was going to an "All You Can Eat" sushi restaurant, not just with my husband but with his gym buddy.  We were home before ten p.m. to catch Dateline (don't watch it alone). But I recently went on a trip that would change …

My First 48 Hours On Fathom
June 20, 2016

This was the second cruise I had ever been on.  I was excited to try something new, especially the impact activities.  I am not one to hang out on "Booze Cruises" so I was happy with this new concept. I had heard that the Adonia was a British ship but didn't really realize what it meant until I got on board.  The first words on the intercom were in a British accent. It's always nice to hear the accent as I was born in Britain and have a British mother.  The only thing I had read was that there was plenty of tea on the ship.  As a coffee drinker, that made me nervous.   Turns out coffee was plentiful, however, there was no Starbucks on the …
