Exciting News and a Win-Win Situation!

 

I am happy to announce that I can help anybody on creating their own travel stories! And even better, this will help me create my own travel stories to share with you on my blog!!

I decided to become a travel consultant! I been thinking about this for months now and finally made my decision. Travel is one my passions, I want to see with my own eyes the beauty of this world and cultures. But lately has been difficult to do that with my full-time job and other responsibilities. Also we just bought a house and you may know all the expenses that comes with that. I am in need of an extra income that eventually I want to convert in my main source of income.

 

What a team we are going to be my husband and me! A pilot and a travel consultant, I think we will be well equipped to help you with your travel and tourist needs :).

I am in the process of getting my certification at this very moment. Soon I will be announcing and sharing my website that I will link with my blog. Now you see why is a win-win situation! I help you, you help me, we both travel and I can write more stories! And if you are a blogger or a travel writer even better you will have your own stories to write 😉

Well until then, I need to go back to study!

MONSTER TRUCK Eco Tour

 

Finding interest things to do with your teenagers it’s not an easy task. Most of the time what is interesting for me, is not for them. But something I know, they love to be on the move, interact with things, the outdoors, at least my teenagers. Something I learn this summer is that they don’t enjoy as much seen monuments and museum…

If you had read my blogs before you know I like to take advantage of the Groupon deals, also because it gives me good ideas of thing to do in town. Well let me tell you our story with this place we found using Groupon… Showcase of Citrus

Upon arrival it seems that is a place to buy fruits and refreshments for your road trip. We look around asking ourselves if we were in the right place.

 

Are you kidding me! That’s what I thought…
Lake Placid?

 

But then we were not sure if we where at Universal Studios with “Jaws”and “Lake Placid”. LOL These pictures above are the welcoming of this intrigue place.

Once we enter we told a lady on the counter that we bought a Groupon and had an appointment for 2 pm. We got there early, she told us that we can browse around and gave us a Slurpee for each of us as part of our Groupon purchased, the choices were orange or lime. I got the orange one, was so refreshing.

Exploring Around

Let me show you the things what we explore while waiting for our Monster Truck Tour. Sometimes images speak louder than words…

 

She love to do faces, no matter the age…

 

 

 

 

 

Part of exploring was visiting some of the animals they have and later… the ride.

I will summarize the adventure taking you with us… Check the video below. I hope you enjoy or farm day in Orlando. Remember if someday you are around here in Orlando, after visiting Mickey you can check some cows, eat some oranges, go through a swamp and learn where some of Animal Kingdoms manure ends up. 😉

 

 

Until then,

Fishing… Hmmmm I Think That Is Next!

 

After having so much fun kayaking and/or swimming with the dolphins or manatees guess what happened next? We are usually hungry. There is a close place by Cape Canaveral Port were there are a few restaurant with outdoor dining. You can see the cruises passing by when they are leaving. You can see the catches of the day. There are few different fishing tours in this area too. I think soon I will like to try one of this tours.

 

 

 

These pelicans hang around here because when the fishermen are cleaning the fishes the caught they throw the “no so good parts of the fish” to the water and for the pelicans free effortless fish is awesome.

 

Well that is it… Until then,

Outdoor Water Adventures

What makes you happy?

Cook, go out, perhaps the outdoors, water sport, family time? What about reading, listening to music, traveling?

It’s important that we do things that we like, that we enjoy, because that help us motivate a balance in our life. We all have to work, to provide for our families, we all have responsibilities with our society. But, what about clearing your mind of the heaviness of the everyday life? What about breaking the routine once in a while? Those things that take us out of the loop, are the ones that bring balance to life. Those things are the ones that will give a real meaning of all the work that you do.

Traveling, having fun, taking time with family, explore the tourist area where you live, water fun, hiking, adventure, friends… The list could go infinite, those things are a need in our lives. Some people may think that those things are luxuries, but they are not. Everything that we do out of balance tend to be a problem sooner or later.

 

 

Personally I will love to travel 24/7… But I can’t. At least at this moment I can’t do it. But still there are so many things that I can enjoy close to home. I personally love spent time with my family, I think everybody should take time to do that, it’s very rewarding and everybody benefits from it. I combine the two things I like the most, the result:

Great time as a tourist close to home with the people I love.

I am always in the look out for things to do with my teenagers and Jorge. That is why I love Groupon! It give me so many options of things to do around the Orlando area with the great bonus of discounts. I encourage you to check them out, I am pretty sure they have something to offer in your city.

 

I found these two Groupon for kayaking and swimming with dolphins and manatees, we try them both in two different occasions. Both of this Groupon are from the same company, but sold separately. It really is a good deal! 😉

Kayaking

Jorge and I went for a little adventure for ourselves…. The tour lasted for two hours. I would say that is more for beginners. But still two hours were you can stop what are you doing and enjoy the sun, the warm water and the Florida fauna.

They offer also Paddle board

 

 

Our Swim with Dolphins and Manatees experience we did it with the kids.

They take you to a little Island on the Banana River where dolphins and manatees pass by like cars in a highway. They don’t guarantee the encounter with the dolphins or manatees but its most likely to happen. Of course there are rules to this, if the mammals come by you can’t harass the animals or chase them, or go on top of them. You have to be gentle and always remember that they are wild strong animals. They are so used to people that they will come to you. Specially manatees! They like to be pet like dogs do. The tour guide was telling us to stay around in the area that sooner or later they will come to you. Exactly that happened! We had two visitors, and indeed they like to be pet and rub. So cute! One of them stayed with the group for a long time. It kept poking us, for us to touch him and rub his back. Later came another one, and this one roll to the belly to be touch and rub too.

We saw some dolphins passing by but they didn’t stop to say hi. Probably they were in a hurry or something. Our tour guide told us that sometime they stop by too and like to be touch and they are playful. We were not that lucky with dolphins but the manatees filled our heart with cuteness.

Take a look to our fun outdoor adventure here in this video.

 

 

If someday you are around Central Florida, you should stop by and have one of this tours. I will be taking another kayak tour soon with other company and see how it go. I will share my story with you later about that. If you want to know more information of things to do in Central Florida send me a message and I will do my best to help you.

Thank You so much for traveling my stories with me. Until then,
