Newport Aquarium provides a unique experience for guests who want to get up close with African penguins. Your visit is in a climate controlled room which means you don’t need any additional layers of clothing because African penguins are used to warmer temperatures.
Kentucky Down Under has been on my adventure list for a while. One of the big reasons it’s been on my list is because they have kangaroos! What’s even better is that you can interact with them!
My boys and I got to go on a behind the scenes tour at the Newport Aquarium to take in a new perspective.
I got the opportunity to preview the new Turtle Canyon Exhibit at Newport Aquarium.
My friend Kasey just got back from an INCREDIBLE vacation! When I saw her facebook pictures I noticed that she got to cross off a few adventures that have been on my list for a while.
My response could easily have been intense jealousy BUT comparison is the thief of joy so I decided to switch my mindset! She really inspired me to not give up and to continue to live my dreams. If she could do it, we can do it too!
I asked Kasey to share some tips for how she was able to pull off her dream vacation on a limited budget.
A visit to the Kentucky Horse Park is a must when you visit Lexington. Kentucky is known to be “Horse Capital of the World” and the Kentucky Horse Park creates an appreciation, education and admiration for these beautiful creatures. The park is set on 1,200 acres of beautiful rolling hills and your biggest challenge will be deciding what area to visit first.
Our kick off event gave us the VIP treatment with a behind the scenes tour of the new Africa Exhibit at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botantical Garden. Our first animal introduction was a Ball Python named Teether.
I’ve always been a bit nervous around horses. Maybe that’s because one tried to buck me off on a trail ride with my family in Wyoming or maybe because every time my husband and I have gone horsebackriding, I seem to get the horse who does not want to stay on the trail and does not like people. I now ask specifically for horses that are named “Daisy Mae” or ” Barely Breathing'”
Dog sledding has been on my bucket list for awhile. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would get to drive a dog sled. I was so excited when we met Terry and he invited us to his home to try driving a dog sled. We met him while he was giving demos for family Winterfest event at an outdoor nature preserve.
