This post is sponsored by Chevrolet Traverse. School’s out for summer!!! I remember how excited I used to get when I was a kid about being out of school for summer. It meant sleeping in, no homework, staying up late, traveling, going to the pool and more! It’s a little different now that I’m a […]...

As a blogger, I have the opportunity to test drive a lot of different cars.  I love driving, so test-driving cars is definitely right up my alley!  I recently got to test-drive one of my favorite cars – the 2014 KIA Cadenza.  Oh my gosh, talk about driving in luxury.  This car rocked! I was […]...

Endless food, mini golf fun, shows, water slides, pools, fun!  These are all things I’ve heard when it comes to describing the cruising experience.  For quite some time, I’ve wanted to go on a cruise, but it just never quite seemed to fit the budget (both in time and money).  Then one week, Frank and […]...

Travel is often seen as nothing more than a means of relaxation. Getting a change of scenery can provide a change of outlook. It’s easier to sort your thoughts out when you aren’t stuck staring at the same four walls all the time. On top of that, getting away from your usual haunts physically can […]...

Traveling brings with it many joys. It also brings a number of things that you’ll have to pay for. While one alternative is to always carry cash, it’s actually safer and often easier to simply use your credit card. You can use them everywhere from the restaurant to the hotel to the souvenir stand. However, […]...
