Now hopefully our Canadian neighbors will appreciate that title(for those who don’t it is the name of the Canadian SNL).  To this California girl, Canada truly was the “Great White North” with snow as far as the eye could see! And cold, lots and lots of cold. After two...

When Bryan contacted me back in late August about going on an ice trucking

adventure to Yellowknife in Canada, I had no clue what I was getting into, let alone

what it would entail. Bryan did his best explaining it to me, but nothing he said

I was joking with a friend recently about, “where in the world is Michelle Floyd?” Well let me tell you, in the past three weeks I celebrated my friend’s bachelorette with two stepping in Las Vegas, followed by the wedding in Tucson the following week, flying to a tour...

Traveling from Italy to Switzerland and back all in the same day?  It’s a long day, but it’s possible and I am going to tell you how my friends and I did it.  

Our day started bright and early on a Tuesday morning where we had to meet at the Milano Cardon...

It has been a while since I have been able to post, but as the title states, it has been softball, softball, traveling, and more softball.  I wouldn’t change a thing.

Growing up you learn all about history in school, see a lot different artwork, and learn about religion in Sunday school.   What I never realized is that much of what I learned is connected to Rome and I learned this when I had the opportunity to explore this great cit...

Hi all! I hope you had a great and happy Easter, or as they say in Italian, Buona Pasqua!

This was my fifth Easter spent away from my family, but my first in a foreign country, and it was quite an enjoyable experience.   My roommate and I were taken in for Easter l...

An adventure is often about the journey, not the destination. Especially when you are in Italy, don’t know the train system, and get lost in an unfamiliar town on your way to go meet your sister in Milan.

As you may have seen from some of my social media posts, my littl...
