Why I Need to Visit Devil’s Den Prehistoric Springs in Florida

One of my best friends moved to Florida a couple years ago, which was sad for me since we’re not hanging out as much as we used to these days. On the other hand, it means I now have a friend in Florida to go visit, and you all know how much I love a good travel opportunity. I’ve been out to Florida to visit her already, and had an amazing time. However, it’s looking like another plane ticket out there may be in order, because I received an email from my friend one morning that read simply, “We need to go here!” and had a link to a place called Devil’s Den Prehistoric Springs. So, I clicked the link and found out that the Devil’s Den looks like a pretty amazing place! Here is what it has to say on their website:

Visiting the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah

Way out in the middle of Rural Southern Utah, East of Zion National Park, you’ll find the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah. I had the pleasure of visiting this enchanting place because I was in town to visit some of the national parks in the area with friends and one person in our group really wanted to check this place out, so we carved off an afternoon and went for a visit. I’m so glad we did!

It Might be Time for a Staycation…

We can’t all travel all the time. I wish we could! However, that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun lives full of new and exciting experiences, relaxing getaways, and fun filled weekends. I tend to lean heavily on the staycation as a means to get me through the boring parts of life between “real” travel experiences.

A Day in Hiroshima, Japan

When you think of Hiroshima, Japan, the images that come to mind are that of that horrible day during World War 2 when my country dropped an atomic bomb on it. Since I was spending time in Kyoto and could reasonably do a day trip to Hiroshima via the Shinkansen, I wanted to pay my respects and learn a little more about the history of this place.

Summer job in Alaska? Yes please!

Ok, so it’s not summertime at the moment, but I wanted to put this out there for you now so you’ll have plenty of time to think about it and get prepared before Summer arrives. I just found out that the state of Alaska recruits tons of people to come work seasonally every summer in their tourism and commercial fishing industries. There aren’t usually enough Alaskans to fill all the positions, so those of us from the lower 48 (and Hawaii) are in luck!
