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,

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 multi plug - which allows us...
   While we realize that not everyone who reads  Florida Fun Travel might be Christian, we are - and unashamedly so.

   When we travel, there are some things we like to keep cold.  However, after some experimentation, we found electric travel coolers fit our needs.    We first tried using an ice-chest style cooler but there has been leakage from time to time. Moreover, we have had mixed results with the re-freezable cubes in terms of how cold they actually...
 Like the tool box we have in our car for minor vehicle repairs, we also carry a travel First Aid kit in case  we suffer some minor cuts, scrapes, abrasions, bumps and bruises.  We actually found the bright red case at a garage sale.

  In the past we have written about the little multi-plug we carry to extend our ability to have sufficient electrical sockets when we arrive at a motel that does not have all the facilities we need.   On a recent shopping trip,  Mrs. Funmeister found a new and improved model made by Charging Essentials . This one not only...
  Getting the best deal on motels can be key for a great vacation. Not only do you get an enjoyable stay, it frees up money for other things as well. Mrs. Funmeister and I have been traveling Florida and the southeast for a couple of years now. During that time we have honed our skills in...
  We have seen a lot of travel blogs on how to pack. But they never suggest taking your fun with you.   We do.   There are dozens of great suggestions.
