What’s a Blogger Journal Swap?

Meet Kate from relokate. I met her through a blogger Journal Swap. She’s a British Expat traveling through Europe.

Back in August I came across the opportunity to be part of a blogger journal swap through Nancy from Neatly Packaged and Lisa from Adventures from a Dream Catcher. The chance to meet a new blogger seemed like a good idea so I signed up.

To my surprise, I was paired up with Kate from relokate.  Kate is a British expat living in Germany. She quit her job and decided to travel the world. I love reading her blog posts about her frequent travels. Prior to this Journal Swap, I did not know about Kate’s blog. The funny thing is that we’ve been planning a trip to Europe for next year. We visited Europe during our honeymoon and made a promise to return ten years later. One of the cities we are planning on visiting is Paris.

I believe in coincidences or faith, whatever you want to call it. So, to be paired up with a travel blogger in Europe who ends up sending me a journal with Paris on it just made it that more special. I’ll keep you posted on our travel plans. But for now, go check her blog and tell her hi for me!

Get to Adventure Island – Tampa

Disclaimer: As a Busch Gardens ambassador, my family was invited to visit Adventure Island. We received four free day passes in exchange for this review. I was not compensated monetarily for this review. All opinions are my own based on my experience.

This was my first visit to Adventure Island in Tampa. Yep, the last time I went to a water park was close to five years ago when we went to Aquatica for my niece’s birthday. The girls were so young, and it was overwhelming to say the least having two toddlers running in opposite directions. So I figured now that they were older, I would be able to relax a little and enjoy.

7 Reasons to stay at the Renaissance Hotel, Boca Raton

This past weekend we headed back to Boca Raton for a quick weekend getaway.  After staying in Deefield Beach a few weeks ago we decided to change locations.  Staying near the beach was not a priority on this trip. We wanted a hotel in Boca Raton with a nice pool and free WiFi. If you follow me on twitter, you’d know what happened last time.  😉
