13.7 Mile Brompton Bike Ride around Flatwoods Wilderness Park (Tampa, FL)

November 1, 2018 |

Cooler weather has begun in Central Florida (high 70°Fs – 80°Fs), so outdoor exploration is easier to do. We dusted off our Brompton folding bikes.

Historic & Culinary “Must-Eat” Tastings Walking Tour (Nassau, Bahamas)

Our first port stop on our 7-night Royal Caribbean Caribbean cruise, was to Nassau. Originally, I was supposed to jump on this food tour with mom on her 80th birthday cruise.
