Cayo Costa State Park Solo Camping Adventure

cayo costa state park

I’ve just celebrated another Laurentines Day on the 28th of February! (If you’re new here, that’s the official holiday I created for my birthday.) In fact it was the 11th annual Laurentines Day.  I usually plan a celebration or a trip but this year I just wasn’t in the mood to party and a trip just wasn’t possible so I decided I would embark on a quick getaway and go camping solo!

Luxury Glamping in Utah

Glamping Conestoga Ranch

Picture yourself in a luxury glamping tent surrounded by vibrant colorful wild flowers, on a hilltop with a view of crystal clear turquoise waters, mountains in the distance and delicious gourmet food.  Does this sound like your kind of vacation? That’s how we spent our summer family vacation this year glamping in Utah in Bear Lake Valley at Conestoga Ranch. Read More »

Glamping at Westgate River Ranch Dude Ranch

I’m a birthday person. I believe in celebrating your birthday as big and bold as you possibly can because anytime you get a chance to see another full year of life it’s worth celebrating. The last few years I’ve forgone the party or the dinner with friends. Instead I’ve chosen to celebrate my birthday on some kind of travel adventure. In fact prior to this year, my last 2 birthdays were spent out of the country.

This year I decided I wanted to do something really different but in lieu of an international trip it would be a domestic trip. Not to worry — what it lacked in distance it made up for in uniqueness. I spent this year’s 10th annual Laurentines Day on a glamping adventure at a Florida dude ranch! (If you’re new here, Laurentines Day is the national holiday that IS my birthday)

Just an hour and half from Tampa is the Westgate River Ranch, a real life dude ranch in the Lake Wales area.  2 of my close friends came along for the fun and we completely immersed ourselves into the Cowgirl way of life over an extended weekend of adventure, laughter, and new experiences.  Read More »

Discovering Outdoor Adventure in North Florida

Florida Springs Marianna

On our recent “glamping” trip at Torreya State Park in the North Florida pan handle, my 14-year-old son and I had a fabulous time staying in a yurt in the campgrounds! See the glamping post about staying in a yurt if you don’t know what a yurt is. Sleeping in a yurt was the basis for the whole trip, however it was only to serve as home base while we searched for outdoor adventure in North Florida. Continue Reading…!

Glamping Adventures in a Florida Yurt

Glamping adventures and luxurious camping holidays are so fetch right now!   It’s the way divas like us were meant to experience the great outdoors.

Glamping Yurt Torreya State Park

My first ever glamping adventure trip happened completely by accident.  It was meant to be  another normal camping trip but it wouldn’t be me if it were normal now would it? I wanted to stay in a cabin this time around because my boyfriend wouldn’t be making the trip.  I’ve only been camping once.  Last spring the family roughed it — tent, sleeping bags, braving the elements, bugs, cooking outside; we did all of it.   While we had an amazing time and it was a beautiful setting in nature, it was definitely against all of my inner diva instincts.  Since that trip, I’ve been dying to go camping again and I decided to plan a camping excursion for my son and I before the new school year started.  It would be a great chance for mom and son bonding before he started his next adventure of beginning high school. Who knew finding this yurt would be one of our most epic adventures! I hear you. What the heck is a yurt? Go On…Keep Reading!
