Study Abroad in Australia with UF

When You Study Abroad Can You Keep a Journal, PLEASE ?! I asked my daughter to write down her daily thoughts during her journey to Australia.  I wanted to buy her a nice journal to write in with a leather cover.  You know, something fancy.  But no, she had other ideas and said she would put it down in her Notes app on her iPhone.  That didn’t seem like that great of an idea to me, but you know, she’s…

Sweet Treats in a Hot City

Sweet Treats in a Hot City

Museum of Ice Cream – Miami What a cool place! The Museum of Ice Cream – Miami is a sweet treat! We really had a sweet time!

The Museum of Ice Cream – Miami is a temporary pop-up “museum” but could be better described as in interactive experience.  First launched in New York and then Los Angeles and Miami by…

Wolf kisses at the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center

Wolf kisses at the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center

My First Wolf Kiss at Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center   The wolf kisses weren’t really kisses.  Although they were super sweet, they could better be described as a very, very large puppy kissing and licking my face.  Well, not really.  Not so much a puppy, really more like a very large dog.  And not exactly licking my face,  but more like a very large, but very gentle, dog gnawing along my jaw with their very large wolf puppy teeth. …
