Ideas to make your travel easier

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...
We have visited quite a few places and found a technique that has proved to be both fun and useful. That's the notion of staying off site. There have been times that we have wanted to go to a festival or visit a point of interest and found that the lodgings in the area...
  When we go on our trips about the state, some of our items already are packed, while others have an itinerary. Of course, we try to pack light. It's easier and it provides plenty of space should we find something we simply cannot live without.  Over the course of time, we have developed a number of pretty-much pre-packed...
  When we stay at various hotels and motels during our travels, one item we generally pick up on the way is a gallon of purified or distilled water. The stop usually takes just a couple minutes at a big box or grocery store. Let me tell you why it is worth it's weight in gold.  If there is...
We always are looking for ways to improve our travel experience, The recent addition of a new gadget to our travel bag has proved to be just the ticket.

So we have created a travel basket. What goes in our...
   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...
Checking our room before we get settled has become a routine for us. Because should we have to move (or even leave) it sure is a lot easier if we don't have to pack up again. That being said, we found this great article from a subject matter expert about how to make sure everything is right from the...
  When we travel, we have been carrying foldable toothbrushes as a way to save space. These are made by a nationally-known company, so we figured we were pretty well covered. The we were alerted to Dr. Plotka's Mouthwatchers.
