Best of Captiva Island in Two Days

Everybody knows South Florida. Obviously, most people associate Miami with South Florida and rightfully so but Southwest Florida is often left out of the conversation. From Fort Myers to Naples there is a lot going on in Southwest Florida. However, one other thing that Southwest Florida has is fabulous islands-islands like Captiva Island. Captiva Island […]

Great Smoky Mountains National Park

As many of you know, my new goal is to visit every National Park in the United States. Back in September I took a road trip from Arkansas to North Carolina stopping in three National Parks and seeing some of what that part of America has to offer. Some good, some bad but always entertaining […]

Madonna and Psy Sing Gangnam Style Together on Stage

Fort Worth is that other city at the end of the name of the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Airport. Fort Worth is overlooked for […]
