    The Hidden Exotic Fraser Island Of Queensland, Australia

    You may think that the stereotypical image of Australia is this huge barren wasteland where only the desert beatles and snakes can thrive. The hot sun is like no other in the world. It’s merciless and will suck the moisture off your skin in just a few minutes. That’s why the biggest and best cities in the country are all coastal settlements.

    Adding Switzerland to Your Travel Bucket List

It’s always nice to get away to a beach or spend our days sipping cocktails from the all-inclusive bar next to a pool. We get a chance to truly let our hair down and relax and can head home feeling refreshed, relaxed, and recuperated. But it’s important to bear in mind that there are alternative forms of holidays out there. Let’s take things to the opposite extreme and consider a trip to Switzerland. Rather than a warm atmosphere, you’re likely to be greeted by frost and snowy mountainscapes. This…

When your grandparents probably still knew the flowers in their garden by name, most adults today wouldn’t recognize a potted geranium. Admittedly, you don’t need to know the name of each pant to appreciate its beauty. But in our fast-paced society, nobody has time anymore to enjoy the marvels of Mother Nature. I have house plants, you say, I love nature. And while this might be true, you need from time to time to rediscover your connection with nature.

    #fbf Jeweled Tree

    It’s Friday! I know it was a shorter work week with the day off on Monday for Martin Luther King Day, but I have been so busy and doing things nonstop all while feeling like I could fall asleep at any moment. I won’t be able to sleep in this weekend much because it’s a busy weekend, but at least I can get in a few more hours of sleep than I have been getting on weeknights. To celebrate it being Friday I’m doing another flashback Friday, #fbf, post. It’s been a little over two years since I was last in Georgia to visit friends and family. On my last…
