Yoga in Four States and Other Scenes from a Family Road Trip

Monument valley-8

Our family road trip started in Las Vegas and had already taken us to the Grand Canyon. The next stop was Four Corners, where we got our obligatory family photo with all 4 of us standing in a different state, and then Maggie and I got back in line to get a picture of her doing yoga in 4 states at once.

Jane Goodall is one of my heroes, so when I found out that a documentary about her was being released, I knew I had to see it immediately. The only problem was that there wasn’t a showing scheduled in Orlando. Since I was overdue for my yearly trip to South Florida, I decided to plan a trip to Coral Gables so that I could see this.

Nestled in a quiet area of Winter Park, a city just north of Orlando, is Mead Botanical Gardens. When I first visited this gem in 2015, I immediately knew I wanted to spend more time here, but it wasn’t until the spring of 2017, when I lived a little closer, that I went back for my second visit.

Going Batty in Bali

Bat Cave Temple

When it comes to animals, I’m not much of a zoo person or pet lover, but I absolutely love seeing creatures in their natural habitats. After time constraints caused me to ditch my plan to go to Komodo Island to see the dragons and giant bats, I decided to make it my mission to find some bats in Bali. And find them I did.
