Spotlight on Florida: Let it snow

You might think being just north of the tropics we wouldn’t have snow but it does snow down here in Florida. But a white Christmas?

And the culprit to all this snow….

a snow machine

So what is this snow? The snowflake, obviously lights, the snow village is more like ice and the falling snow, well that’s actually soap. Although we had fun it didn’t satisfied my desire to see mounds of the fluffy white stuff.

Spotlight on Florida: Myombe Reserve – Busch Gardens, Tampa

Myombe Reserve

I have always wanted to visit Africa; the closest I’ll come any time soon is visiting Busch Gardens Tampa. In the first on my series on Busch Gardens Tampa will explore the Myombe Reserve.

The Myombe Reserve features gorillas and chimpanzees in a “natural-looking” African landscape. As you walk through misty trails you encounter a lush jungle and waterfalls as you encounter each habitat.


Busch Gardens Tampa is open daily from 10am to 6pm, which varies seasonally. The park is located eight miles northeast of Tampa, Florida.
