The Land of Sea and Sun

IMG_0244.JPGAntigua is humbly known as “The land of sea and sun” and has a reputation of having 365 beaches! That’s one for every day of the year!

While I wasn’t there long, I had a great couple days and wanted to share with you what I experienced! (more…)

One place that I have found myself visiting pretty often is Tampa, FL. Some of you may know that I lived in Tampa for two years at the beginning of my college career. Tampa has a lot to offer, from pristine beaches, to a bustling nightlife, as well as attractions, and a cruise port! I’m going to share with you some highlights of my two recent visits, as well as some of my favorite spots for you to visit if you make a short trip to the Tampa Bay! (more…)

It may be far different than some other news that you’ve been seeing; but I wanted to share the enjoyable parts of Gatlinburg to lighten the mood, and to show how beautiful the area was before the fires.  (more…)
