Hints & Tips

Hints & Tips to make your travel easier. We do a lot of traveling around Florida. One thing we have discovered is that accommodations differ. Sometimes there are plenty of plugs in the room, sometimes not. There may be a smell in the room, or perhaps they have styrofoam cups. (We use paper.)

Therefore, we carry a lot of our own stuff. In short, we’d like to give you some hints & tips so you can be prepared, without having to take seven steamer trunks full of equpment with you,

There is nothing that surpasses the importance of research in planning a getaway. We use TripAdvisor to review the restaurants, lodging and points of interest in area we plan to visit. It helps us determine where we'll go and what we'll do. Recently, we attended an extended...

In the past we have talked about the light-sensing night light that we carry so we can find the bathroom after dark. When you stay in different hotel rooms, things are not always in the same places. From time to time, we stay in a place where they have bifurcated...

How you pack for travel can determine how good or how badly your vacation outing might go. We are pretty much ready to leave at a moment's notice. When we go on our trips about the state, some of our items already are packed, while others have...

We always are looking for ways to improve our travel experience - this new extension cord is just the ticket. The recent addition of a new multi-plug to our travel bag has proved to be both handy and dandy. In the past we have been using a specialized...
   We have been traveling the Sunshine State for a couple of years now and as we have gone from place to place it became quickly apparent that there were some things that we needed to bring along to make certain we were well prepared for our overnight stays. So we have created a travel basket.
   While we realize that not everyone who reads  Florida Fun Travel might be Christian, we are - and unashamedly so. That is why we pray before, during and after our trips.    For instance, many times we pray that The Lord will direct our path and take us to the right place at the right time. We pray He...
