How I Stayed In a European Castle For Free

Remember my Kickass European Itinerary I shared with you last month?   Well I’m finally settled back into real life and football mom life so it’s time to get back into the groove of sharing my travel stories and tips with you from that amazing adventure. Strap in as I tell you all about how I stayed in a European castle for free. Yes, I said free!!!

I have wanted to stay in a castle since I was a little girl. I’ve always had that girlish fascination with all things princess and fantasy related. Blame it on being a Disney crazed 80s baby. A night in a castle was a bucketlist item I was determined to fulfill while I was visiting Europe.  Read More »

Visit to Devil’s Den Underground Spring


They say that whatever you are doing on the first day of the year sets the barometer for how the rest of the year will go. I decided this year I would start off with an adventure to kick off my 2016. You’ve seen my 2016 adventure bucketlist, so I’m counting on this year to be one of the most adventurous ever.  On New Year’s Day, my son and my adventure buddy Nicole and I headed north of Tampa to a little sleepy town called Williston, FL. If you blink, you’ll miss it. I had been dying to get to the famed Devil’s Den, an underground spring in a prehistoric cavern. What better day to visit Devil’s Den than the first day of the year!

My Christmas Bucketlist of Adventures


Christmas BucketList

I love this time of year. I really do. I love all of the mushy sappy corny Christmas holiday traditions. For today’s #Blogmas entry for Day 2, I thought it would be fun to do a Christmas bucket list of adventures. Some of these I have done, and some I think as a Christmas lover I should experience at least once in my life.  They aren’t really in any particular order, just how they popped into my head.

Christmas Gift Ideas For Giving the Gift of Experiences

Giving the gift of experiences

It’s December! It’s my favorite time of the year. Let the Christmas countdown begin. While I am consumed with upcoming Christmas parties and finding that special something for my son and my mom, I actually have something even more pressing in the works.  In less than 2 months my one and only baby boy will be turning 16 years old.  Yes, 16! The teenager is approaching a major milestone. As you know we love to have mom and son adventures, so he’s a lot like me. He’s probably even more of an adrenaline junkie that I am. Read More »
