The Best Thing About Multiple Destination Vacations…
In 16 days Evelina and I leave for Naples and I cannot wait! We will be at the condo for 6 days followed by 3 days at Disney World. I love multiple destination trips because it feels like 2 vacations in one. Our Naples trip will be relaxing with only a few activities planned. Our goal is to lie on the beach a lot and swim in the pool ever more!
The only 2 activities on the books are parasailing and eating at Grouper and Chips.
Disney, on the other hand, requires more planning and will be more walking and less relaxing. It is so much fun though. This trip we are not going to spend the entire day in Magic Kingdom nor are we going to Hollywood Studios. We will commit a half day to MK and Animal Kingdom and a full day to Epcot Center, which is our favorite park.
Having 2 destinations gives us something to look forward to while we are relaxing on the beach. Usually the trip is over once you begin cleaning up the house and packing suitcases. Having another destination to end the trip builds a whole new level of excitement mid-trip! That in itself makes the second leg of vacation worth it.
All-in-all we are super excited. I guess if you aren’t excited for vacation, then you need to re-evaluate what type of trip your taking!

This is at the condo in Naples when Evelina and I got engaged in 2012. We began our trip at Disney, but Hurricane Debbie rained us out. We decided to move farther west and pass Debbie as she moved east. It worked the first day, but this video shows you how day 2 turned out!
We arrived home from Naples on Tuesday night and it has taken me until today to recover from vacation. It might have been the 13 hour drive in the car that wore me out. Regardless, I am still tired. I need a vacation from my vacation.
We visited a place called the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary
We also ate some great food
It was a great trip with great friends. Now we are ready to plan our next trips: Great Smokey Mountains and Cherry Grove Beach!!
It is just after 4:00 am and I am up early to get some things done for a few clients. I do a lot of the creative ads for any campaigns I run digitally and my mind sometimes wakes me up with ideas. So here I am; wide awake and typing when I might be better off sleeping. Nonetheless here are a few of the things going on in my mind…
I am currently working my way through all the season of The Big Bang Theory. Currently I am in season 5 and so far it is hilarious. I highly recommend it to anyone.
Vacation for Evelina and I begins in 6 days! I need this trip to recharge a little and Naples, Florida is just what the doctor ordered!
I had a huge client sign with my company yesterday. My coworker and I have worked on this for nearly a month and we got the word yesterday that they signed with us for all of their digital advertising. When I close deals like this it is so completely satisfying.
I haven’t been as active lately in my reading of other blogs, but that is going to change. I need to refocus my energies and come up with a better plan. Last time I looked there are approximately 6,700 blogger who follow my page, which makes it nearly impossible to get to every single follower. I’m not exactly sure what I’m going to do if I’m being honest.
I went to the hospital yesterday evening and had an MRI on my shoulder. In October 2015 I had a little stumble on the staircase and the pain in my shoulder has gotten progressively worse ever since. The specialist thinks I either have a torn bicep muscle or a torn rotator cuff. Either way surgery appears imminent which doesn’t please me, but I’ll be happy to have a functioning shoulder again.
In preparation for Naples I have been lying out in the sun for 20 minutes each day. It seems that I have developed an allergy to the sun! Each day my back, chest and legs develop hives from the exposure so I think it best I get a UV shirt for my trip.
That’s all for now. Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday!!
One of my favorite things in the world is the excitement that comes along with anticipating a vacation. I have spent the last week watching videos on YouTube about Naples, Florida. I have found several unique restaurants we will visit and many shopping areas Evelina will enjoy. Our condo is right on the beach with a courtyard which is only feet from the sand. We haven’t been to the condo in a couple of years and it will be nice to see the renovations completed.
I am currently building a territory at my job which requires a lot of hours and a lot more effort than managing an existing territory. It will be a nice break to recharge the batteries for a week.
Needless to say I am as excited as a kid at Christmas!
Some of my regular readers will know that I have recently been on a two week holiday to Florida with my family – my two kids, my husband and my parents. It was a long awaited trip (the kids have been asking every week, ‘how many days is it until Disney?’, for the past year), with the plan being that we would stay two hours from Orlando on the beach and take a few days out for the Parks. I had been looking forward to the trip with a mixture of excitement (my first long haul trip since my wedding 11 years ago!) and trepidation (how will it be for me, as a relatively newly-disabled person?).
Well, the holiday was fab; I am now one shade darker than milk-bottle white and had a lovely, relaxing time (for the most part). Watching our kids have fun, spending most of their time…
I couldn’t have asked for better weather since I’ve been here in Florida. Everything about this trip has been perfect. I have so many pictures, but I won’t upload them all here right now because it takes so long. Most of them have been posted on my Facebook, but when I return home I might share the rest here. Today is my last day. I’ll be leaving very early tomorrow and spending most of the day driving.
The pictures posted here were taken yesterday evening in Pine Island — I can’t get over the beauty of the sunsets I’ve been seeing.
There’s an additional benefit to going on vacation. I haven’t followed the news AT ALL! In fact, I’m oblivious to what’s been going on in politics this week — and I’m fine with that. This is not only a vacation from the daily grind…
In just a month (April 7th), I’ll be driving back to the Tampa Bay area again to visit my son. I’ll be there for 5 days, until the 12th. This time, my daughter is coming along with me, since she hasn’t seen where he lives before.
When I went in August last year, it was the first time I’d ever been in Florida, and since my son was working most of the week I was there, I had time to spend alone exploring the area. One of my favorite discoveries was the bath-warm waters of the Gulf near his home, with its ever-shifting tides that expose the silt-like sand at low tide. There aren’t a lot of tourists there in August (too hot), so that trip actually turned out to be not only a peaceful, but also a spiritual experience — not to mention…
